Height adjustable power seat

Does anyone have any info on getting and installing a height adjustable power driver's seat? Long legs and short torso and having difficulty seeing over hood scoop, LOL. Have used a pillow but would really like the power seat. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I'd settle for just a little lumbar support

Well, the only fix I have come up with is to determine how much it needs to be raised. Then, I think Im gonna have to cut the front seat mounts and weld in some extensions. Im gonna give it a try, but I think my welder is screwed up, so it may take me a while.

You should have it. Its near the pivot point on the left side of the seat. Its a rotory adjuster.

Mobility Conversions

The problem is that we can't make a permanent height adjustment, need the flexibility for each driver. We are going to check with a mobility conversion company that does conversions for handicapped accessibility. I am thinking that they may be able to add a seat lifting device to the existing OEM seats. I will let you know if I find out anything.

Lumbar support is pretty standard as far as I know. I have it and I hate it. It hurts.

The seat is short, and I put about a 1/4" of shim under the front seat mounts and it helped a lot. Any more than that, and I couldn't get the mounts to line up again. I may have to build some unique seat mounts to raise the seat up, but I'd really like to know that someone (line Wedge Engineering?) makes a fully adjustable seat frame for the Taco.
