Does anyone make a seat lowering kit?

***first post****

I have really enjoyed this forum for the past few years and seemed to find any info I was looking for until now. I need a seat lowering kit. I'm tired of hitting the top of my head on the sound bar at the slightest bump. I need the seat to be about 2in lower to be comfortable. I have contacted several vendors with no luck.

Any info would be helpfull!

The seat is adjustable. You have it all the way down and still hit your head? I'm 6' and have mine all the way up and don't hit my head, how tall are you?

I havn't seen any seat lowering kits tho. Maybe fab one or buy a different "bucket" type seat to throw in.

I have not seen a kit, you will probably have to have someone fab up something for you.

Wonder if you could have an upholstery shop re-foam your seat to make it thinner, so it would gain you some room. I don't know if that would make it uncomfortable though.

Yeah I would hate to have to do that. I wouldn't hesitate to try something though. I love the Jeep but it really sucks when you hit a bump.

I'm 6'5" and have the same problem. As far as I know, there aren't any kits available to lower the seats, and looking at the mounting brackets, I don't think you could modify them to lower them. The inside "legs" of the mounts aren't very long to begin with. I felt like I had more room in my TJ than I do my JK.
