    UPDATED 6/11/22. ***NOTE - THE MATERIAL PRICES HAVE INCREASED BY OVER 200% SINCE EARLY 2021. SHIPPING PRICES HAVE INCREASED OVER $1 IN THAT TIME. I HAVE BEEN CONTENT WITH NOT RAISING MY PRICES. NOW SELLING AT THE LOWEST PRICES EVER.***
    $35 A PAIR, $63 TWO PAIR. SHIPPING AND BOLTS ARE INCLUDED IN PRICES. SAME PRICES ON FORUMS, FACEBOOK AND EBAY. ALL PRICES INCLUDE GRADE 10.9 LONGER FLANGE BOLTS, INSTRUCTION SHEET AND 3 DAY PRIORITY SHIPPING.

    Square body with contour cutout to match the shape of the rear front seat anchor brackets. Better and more secure coverage than simple store bought round spacers. Unique copyright design makes it less likely for the seat bracket to be knocked off of the spacer in an accident. Raises the rear brackets almost 1". Makes the seat more level to minimize back and leg issues which has plagued the Tacoma. Definitely an improvement in seating comfort. Sits more like a truck and less like a Camry. Initially made for 3rd gen. Now proven to fit 2nd gen trucks as well as all 2007-2014 FJCruisers. These are made from 6061 grade aluminum and include free required grade 10.9 longer flange bolts and free Priority shipping. PM for info. Accepting PayPal exclusively. Course brushed aluminum finish is ready for painting. Over 2700 pair sold and installed since March 2019. Thanks for looking.

    DISCLAIMER (legal): The quality and strength of materials is excellent, however, you are changing your seat configuration at your own risk. I use these in my personal vehicle at my own risk. The included bolts have a 150,000 psi tensile strength which are incredibly strong.

    End result for comfort and height are basically the same. I didn't like the simple round spacer idea so I made something different with a little larger footprint that conforms to the seat bracket. It takes me 3 times longer to machine mine on a mill instead of simply parting lengths on a lathe like his. I have no idea what grade aluminum he uses either. I use best grade 6061. Looks like most people are replacing his cheaper grade 8.8 bolts. I use better grade 10.9 bolts. There is someone else making some out of 6061 for $70 a pair with no free bolts and no free shipping. You decide what is best for you. You have several options. There is nothing wrong with any of the available choices.

    Sometimes I get overwhelmed putting together packages to ship. I do not always include instructions. Some may need them. Some may not. For this reason I am posting a copy here.

    Note to buyers with sliders welded to your frame. A customer had to add a washer to each side of the driver seat. We were baffled. Finally figured out the welded slider on the driver side affected the threaded holes. Had no issue on the passenger side. This is the only issue found in over 30 pair sold. So if you have welded sliders, and you add spacers under the seat to floor brackets, you may need to pick up a pair of washers for the 10 mm bolts. This is info for any brand or style of seat spacers that you buy.

    I am down to the last 1 pair of spacers. I have ordered material for the next run and the material prices have been reduced. This last pair are discounted to deplete inventory and, as of now, the next batch will have these new lower prices. Same quality grade 6061 material and same grade 10.9 flange bolts. I expect to start production in the next 10 days with a release somewhere between May 15 and May 31. Note ebay prices are higher to cover fees. New member direct paypal prices are:
    1 pair $35
