Misch big boy seat bracket review

Well i just got them in today. took about 30 minutes to install and what a difference it makes. I have plenty of leg room now. Im 6'6 so my knees were a little cramped. needless to say not anymore. The instructions were pretty clear on the install and they brackets are beefy, and fit the contour of the floor perfectly. The only thing that would have been better is if the brackets were labeled left and right but it really wasnt needed as you can tell the difference in the pictures. all in all im pretty happy. this was my first "mod" im still waiting for my flares to come in, and decide wether or not to go with black wheels or keep the polished ones i have on it.

I just installed mine and.... Wow! I have plenty of room now, even more than I did in my Grand Cherokee. I'm a big dude at 6'7", 350lb; so unless you're an absolute leviathan, if you need more room invest in some of these!!! Pricey, but worth it.

Did they drop the seat down? The seats in my 98 sit up higher than my 04 and I like the lower seat in the 04.

If anything, they're 1/4" higher because of the thickness of the brackets. Not noticeable to me though

Big Boy Seats

I have a 2013 Wrangler Unlimited, am 6' 2" tall, and felt cramped in the OE set up. I just installed these and now have more than enough leg room, with the seat all the way back I have trouble mashing the accelerator to the floor. The install was easy and straight forward, biggest challenge was unhooking the electrical connector and getting the seat out of the car with the hard top and doors on by myself. Also you will need a breaker bar, or impact wrench to get the 4 bolts out that hold the OE brackets down, they were very, very tight, not sure if they used locktite at the factory on them or not. I struggled even with a breaker bar to get them lose. Product fit well, and was as described. My only negative comments are the bracket on the trans tunnel is a different shape in front than the original and now the OE carpet has a big hole in it that the old bracket used to cover and looks pretty bad, it is more noticeable in my car because I have a white car with black carpet. Also on the tunnel under the seat there is a big ugly ground that you couldn't really see before and now it is fairly visible. (Also would have been helpful if torque speech's were included in the instructions for reassembly.) I am assuming the fix is to either go to an upholstery shop and have them make me a new front drivers side carpet, or paint the white showing through black, or make a piece of metal or plastic that mimics the OE seat bracket shape and paint it black and bolt it on.

I've had mine for well over 5 years, and couldn't be happier with them. Doug Misch was kind enough to send these to me via Quadratec while I was in Moab for EJS. No install issues, no carpet holes, everything fit quite well. At over 6'6" and a petite 305 lbs, I can put my legs straight out while cruising down the highway.

Simple, like you said, paint the area of the floor showing black. That's what I did.

What a cool idea! Thanks for the tip. I'm 5'10" and I still feel cramped. I don't know how you tall guys even get in the thing.

mine are being delivered today. any tips, tricks, or advice for the install on the TJ's? I have a soft top so getting the seat out is the least of my problems.

being 6'7 and a petite 420 pounds, I am looking forward to the new feel

I'm going to change my name to LittleGus after reading this thread. At 6'2", 250lbs I'm feeling kinda small now.

I really don't know how you guys get in and out of these things!

I would have never bought a jeep had these not been available. I actually bought these prior to buying my jeep. I'm 6'10 and feel pretty comfortable in my '04.

I installed these brackets today and am amazed at how much roomier my Jeep feels. I just bought a 1997 Sport from my buddy and I'm 6'7" tall and 340 pounds. I wish I had brackets like these for all my other rigs.
