Seat Extenders and Seat Retractors??
Posted by: MattNall ()
Date: April 12, 2019 01:33PM

Last couple of weeks I've been making seat Extenders..... so as not to compete with Vendors offerings....


I offer a 3"/ 4"/ 5" unit...all in one $75 Shipped 2 for $125 Shipped


Recently the need for brackets to move the seat forward have come up

I've made a set that allows you to move the seat FORWARD 1" or 2" AND 3" with the FRONT legs LOWERED 1-1/2"

ANY INTEREST in this?

Similar to the usual ones... just longer and more tapped holes.

Will your extenders work with the bench seat on a Rampside?

Doesn't the Rampside already butt up against the back of the cab?

You are right about rearward travel. I want to add more forward travel, decreasing the distance to the pedals.

What metal are the extenders made of? I am wondering if they could be adapted to a full size Chevrolet bench seat? What is the spacing between the two bolt holes? With these dimensions, I might be able to compare it to my seat track.
