All prices includes shipping. One seat $33 with bolts, or $28 without bolts , Both seats $58 with bolts or $48 without bolts.
    I can make special order sizes if not in a big hurry. Couple days. Message me with any questions ,or email me. cooters@tampabay.rr.com Please know you do this at your own risk, I am making these for you at your request.
    Thank you

    Again one seat will be $28 without bolts or $33 with bolts . For both seats $48 without bolts or $58 with bolts, includes shipping.

    (Listen, 5 mins you will know if this is a nice feel for you. Just pull the back 2 bolts and slide something about an inch under each foot and sit in it. I am sure you will instantly know if it is right for you. I didn't do these to make money. ( Retired, don't need the work or $$$$ ) So after reading about all the ranting I tried it and was so impressed I figured I would make some decent ones for folks. But nothing is free, so I gotta pay for electric, machines and materials.Most common size is 1" Not getting rich. LOL ,Good luck, Be safe , and maybe , just maybe a comfortable tush .:thumbsup:
    Thank you

    I’d love for the front of my seats to sit up slightly higher while leaving the rear alone. Do you offer something like this? Thx.

    No I don't have anything for the front. No I am not short but this mod sets your butt alittle higher. Most folks are doing it for comfort. It just feels a lot better on the back , and it does help you see over the hood better. If you search seat mod mainly in the 2nd Gen section there is a whole lot about it. You only need 2 per seat. You only put them in the rear. I am not a vendor. I was so impressed with it when I did mine I decided to make some good quality ones cause I already had everything to build them. Thanks,

    I already own the materials so it is just time and my machining. Retired and gives me something to do. Would not do them if they hadn't impressed me when I did mine. Whoever did this first KUDO's to them.

    No, the bolts are $2.50 each They are very proud of them. You are correct on price without the bolts.

    I’m 5’8 and to me the seat just feels flat. I’ve gotten used to it but if there is anything you can design/create for the front I’d be first of all happy as a pig in mud and forking cash at you. Even if it’s 1/2”-1”. I’ve looked at it and bc of the pitch if I try to raise the front seat the bolts would not line up to the existing holes. This is the issue. Toyota needs to stop being so cheap and give us the ability to adjust these seats.

    I have never done anything for the front. But at least do this, pull the back 2 bolts and slide something under each foot and then sit in the seat and see if that feels different and good to you. This is what everybody is doing and ranting how nice it fits and feels. I am 5' 10" 3 back surgeries so that is why I tried it after reading all the other folks results. After I did it I could not imagine how a 1" block made such a difference. It might not be your fix, but at least give it a shot. A lot of folks shorter than you have ranted about the feel, easier to get in and out of truck and see over the end of the hood better. Hell 5 minutes pulling 2 bolts will tell you before you spend any money. I hope it works for you as well as it did for me. That was what convinced me to make some. I am retired and really don't need the work or money, it was just a decent up grade for folks. Good luck and let me know if it is or isn't your cup of tea. Be safe my friend

    I’m thinking of trying this. I don’t have too much of an issue also at 5-8 but I’m wondering if it would feel better for longer drives.

    What’s the total for 2 spacers 2 bolts and shipping? $25?

    Absolutely, that was one of the reasons myself and a bunch of other folks did it. And yes you have it right on price.

    So I just tried that and yeah the only thing that did for me was to make me feel like I’m sliding off the seat lol. It felt flat to begin with so all good. Thanks again.

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone looking for aluminum spacers and came up empty at local automotive and hardware stores. So I’m glad to see someone making them and offering them for sale. I plan to do the drivers seat in my Tacoma and bought some extras for other uses. Thanks OP.
