relocating rear seats for more leg room.

Has any one done this? Thinking of moving it back an inch maybe. Just wondering if its possible or not.

Anything is possible with the correct application of high explosives and...oops, wrong forum!

Sure it's possible but you'll also have to relocate your seat belts and seat brackets, etc.

Keep in mind the anchor points for the seat and seat belts are FMVSS certified. By relocating them you assume all the risk in the event of an accident and when the insurance company finds out they will mose likely not pay any damages and the lawyers will then step in for all your assets. If you have any.
