Metalcloak rear seat middle support

For those out there worried about their sagging seat in the middle of their rear JK unlimited, I just installed the fix by Metalcloak. It is a piece of T6 aluminum that slides in and zip ties up to the bar supports underneath in the front underside of the seat. I went a step further and drilled two holes in the rear and used two more zipties. I tested it out and its perfect. Supported, sturdy, not going anywhere. I recommend it for only $20.

Stealth, I too just installed the metalcloak piece in just a couple of minutes. I was happy to see that they included two zip ties. It is ridiculous that the Jeep needs to have this mod done- it should come from the factory like this.

I used a 6"W X 13"L X 1/2"T piece of red oak from HD for a cost of $5. Of course a few weeks later the MC fix came out. LOL

I was all set to buy this for $24, but the additional ~$15 in shipping has me walking away. Are there any WF discount codes I've missed?

I took a piece of scrap 1/8" plate I had lying around. About the size of a license plate, but a bit longer. cut it and had it painted in about 10 minutes before I had to install the carseat and take the kiddo to swim lessons.
