Passenger seat 1.5" lift using TJ kit

Lifted my passenger seat 1.5" using the TJ lift kit. Had to buy bolts/nuts. Pretty straight forward, took about 30 min.

I have 4 of these 1.5" blocks left if anybody would like to purchase them. $25 shipped to lower 48 (full kit cost $60). PM me if interested. Two blocks will have a smaller hole and two blocks will have a larger hole. I used four blocks with the smaller hole, approx. 1/4". The larger block will work, although the bolt hole size is approx 7/16" and a bolt that size is just a little too large to go through the seat bracket.

Why? For short passengers?

Passenger seat sits very low if your not very tall. Passengers can't see over the dash. You should try sitting over there and see how you like it...

People lift and lower their power driver seat all the time....passenger seat just doesn't have that option. Guess you don't have power seats..

I surely do.

Let me be more specific for you - I can't imagine why anyone would raise their passenger seat with those little plastic blocks.

It makes sense raising your seat if you are driving - to have a better view of the road and what's going on around you - not so much for a passenger.

Obviously, I'm not the only one scratching my head about the purpose of it.

Funny enough, my 10 year old kid said it's the best thing I've done to the commander yet. He can finally see over the dash. Others on this forum have also done this, that's where I got the idea. Looking at your guys post count, I'm sure you commented on his too. They are actually billet aluminum blocks and use grade 8 fasteners.

If you're just going to bash someone's post, keep it to yourself and move on....every forum has guys like you, trolling daily to give your comments on everything. You can always tell them by their post count. There's only so much info and mods to do one your rig, I figure after about a hundred or so posts, you're just spreading BS.

Big Blue...you've posted on every one of my threads, find someone else to follow around.

I don't see any trolling, just curiousity. ^


I have been around awhile and post a lot so I must be a troll? That seems a little harsh.


All I asked was... why, is it for short passengers? and apparently it is. Good to know. Cheers!
