Seat brackets help.

Does anyone have any idea on what I can do to get a couple more inches in leg room with my drivers seat? I've check in with Misch's Big Boy Brackets and they don't seem to make any for YJ's.

Help me if you can, my knees will thank you.

How handy are you?

You could get some strap steel from Home Depot, drill out holes for the seat risers, bolt them on. Make sure they extend a couple inches further back than the stock ones. Decide how far back you want your seat, then drill holes for the seat sliders to bolt to that are further back. the front holes would drill through the strap steel and the stock risers, and the rear ones would only go through the steel.

If you were worried about them flexing you could use angle iron instead of strap.

If you choose to say "plz" because it is shorter than "please" I choose to say "no" because it is shorter than "yes".

Or you can just move the entire seat back just drill new holes in the floor and bolt them in
