    Got mine today. Just installed them and did a sit test. Way more thigh support now; I'm 6' with a 33-34 inseam. I had installed a piece of high-density foam under my seat cover to provide some additional support, but I think I'll remove that now, or at least the front part of it. I'll report back after I put more miles on the truck.

    Received and installed. Had a little issue with the right side not sitting 100% correct, like it was 99.67% correct. Just had to put a little extra muscle into it and got the new bolt to thread in correctly. Overall, the install was not bad. Completed the whole thing in about 15 minutes. Initial impressions, I feel like the support that I didn't have before legs are now there, definitely higher than before. We'll see how it is after a couple longer commutes. :thumbsup:

    1B60CB98-EBC8-48D3-B907-3CA9105E6D20.jpg Got mine installed today for both the driver and passenger sides. Mine are installed along with the rear spacers from @olecoot (note: I went with 3/4” spacers in the rear vs 1”). Install takes 5 mins tops per side.

    I’m 6’0” with long legs (34” inseams) and I needed overall more height to the seat to get better support for my hamstrings/back-of -thigh. Initial impression is this is how the seating position should have come from the factory. Legs are now fully supported and no issue with head space at the roof...still have at least 2-3” though I should point out my Pro doesn’t have a sunroof. So far very promising and the real test will be tomorrow’s commute. I’ll update after a few commute trips.

    @EasyDoesIt looks like you have a winner here and you’ll be a busy man once folks catch wind.:thumbsup:

    Mine came in last night! :woot: Install on both seats was about 10-15 minutes, no issues.

    I'm 5'8" with 32" inseam and my initial impression was that the risers created a good bucket effect that provides a ton more mid to lower thigh support that was not previously there. Head room with front risers alone was changed by less than 1/2". After a short drive I felt I needed a bit of a raise in the rear as well so for test purposes I stacked appropriately sized flat washers under the rear legs until I had a 1/2" rise in the rear. This is what I find optimal for myself. The seat has a nice comfortable rake that provides proper support, improved viewing perspective and a modest overall rise. Headroom loss is minimal at less than 3/4" total.

    Well done @EasyDoesIt ! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Thanks again guys,

    Just following up after two days of commute. All I can say is WOW and I now feel 100% comfortable in the Tacoma seats. Some of the best money I've spent on the truck so far!

    Maybe I'm just getting to old for a truck, but I'm 5'9" and have a hard time just getting in the seat. Once in the seat it feels like i sit up too high. 2019 SR base. Traded in a worn out Silverado for it.

    When does the new batch come out? When my set arrives, and if it fits me well, I’ll order another set.

    Funds sent. I have a 25 hour drive in June for moving and I think these will help. I'm not sure if they will work with my fire extinguisher seat mount, but I guess we'll find out. Otherwise I'll probably pass the set on to someone here for a bit of a discount.

    I love seeing all the cool little widgets all of our forum members come up with.
