All of us who are out of our teens/20s ? When I drove my truck from Tennessee to Kansas (a 14-hour drive) it got to where I was shifting position every 5-10 minutes. I remember falling asleep in the back of a deuce on top of a pile of duffle bags and sleeping like a baby in my 20s--but I'm pretty sure that wouldn't work any more...Padding? Who needs padding?
This is the source of mine - http://www.govliquidation.com/auction/view?auctionId=12024036 They need a little work to get them installed, but they are very, very comfortable. Much better than the lawn chair quality seats that were in there. I wasn't sure about tan with the green, but I am happy with how they worked out.Those look great! I'm set for seats in my truck but, any details on them like original application or NSN so I can recommend them to others who might want a seat upgrade?
I looked back in the thread but didn't see them referenced.
Scroll up and you will see pics of my install of the exact same seats except in tan. For the driver seat, I removed the spring seat and welded a piece to bolt the seat directly to the existing base. The other seats were just too tall and you don't need to adjust them so I removed the tracks, cut the sides flush with the bolt holes and attached them directly. The flip up seats make this very easy. I can get you more pics if you need. The drivers seat is a touch taller than I would like. I may go back and rework it, but for now it works fine.I bought 4 seats similar to this and am having a hard time installing.
I had a standard springer seat in the driver and removed it. . And the the new high back isn't even close. I had read on another thread this needs to be entirely removed and a "riser" is required. Is there an adapter base available? The other 3 (front passenger and rears) I assume mount to the flat seats pans but when I dry fit them they seem like the ride height will be much higher than what would be ideal. Any advice/links would be appreciated.
