    **Production for 2020 has ended, so be sure to grab the remaining 1/2" extensions before they sell out.**

    Order in 1/4" size increments. Custom sizes are also doable.

    Price per pair/ seat.

    V1 (spacers sold out, 1/2" extensions available) - 100% 6061 T6 raw aluminum (needs painting/finishing). Spacer w/ stackable extension option.

    $xx - 1" spacer/riser pair
    $xx - 1/2" extension pair

    V2 (sold out) - 6061-T6 Aluminum spacer insert with black copolymer contoured exterior. Spacers only, no extension.

    $xx - 3/4" or 1" pair
    $xx - 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" pair
    $xx - 1-3/4" pair.

    USA shipping is $8.30 for up to two pairs.
    ______________________________________________
    Why buy these compared to the cheaper alternatives? Because you like the clean/OEM look, and you do not want a series of cheap-looking mods to bring down the aesthetic of your truck. No "comb-over" required to hide unmatched fitment.

    2nd Gen/3rd Gen compatible. Contour matches seat trim pieces. 2nd Gen regular cab owners should check to ensure they even have trim pcs before buying.

    ________________________________________
    Hardware information:

    There are too many spacer lengths offered, so bolts/washers are only included for 1" and 1.5" rise.

    [Grade 10.9] JIS High-Strength Steel Flanged Hex Head Screw, M10 x 1.25 mm thread. 50 mm Long for 1" rise, 65mm long for 1.5" rise.

    Grade 10.9 M10 x 1.25 is the bolt spec you need for 1-1/2" rise or less.
    Grade 12.9 M10 x 1.25 is the bolt spec you need for 1-3/4".


    For all other sizes: If the thread pitch is not specified at your local hardware supplier you need the "fine" pitch, and NOT "coarse". Most hardware/auto stores will carry these. If you get flanged head (OEM bolts are flange head) there will be no need for a washer, but otherwise, washers will also be needed.

    1/2" rise = 40mm bolt length
    3/4" rise = 45mm bolt length
    1-1/4" rise = 55mm bolt length
    1-3/4" rise = 70mm bolt length

    As with anything, there are always additional risks in changing the original design of the vehicle. This mod has been very well thought out, IMO, but buyer is responsible for any risks incurred by changing the original design of their truck.

    PLEASE READ:

    With the emergence of seat FRONT risers being produced on the forum, I feel it is necessary to comment.

    I strongly advise against using these REAR-only spacers in unison with seat FRONT risers/spacers of any kind. There are good reasons why I am not already producing front risers, and I do not plan to in the future.

    Awesome!

    I am still happy that there are no complaints from the passenger seat since I installed them.

    All complaints have been transferred to me, because I am always late for dinner due to making them.

    for anyone interested in any of the seat spacers being sold, these spacers are far susperior to any of the ones availible. yes, they all function and work the same way, but these spacers will give you a finished look. they look like part of the plastic cover. i guess you get what you pay for. thanks to @tonered and @7r41lbr34k3r

    Yep, there is enough raw material in stock for about 10 sets of two. I have 6 more knobs to finish (which are about 75% complete already) so I wouldn't be able to start on spacers until after the 14th.

    Doing some finishing touches on a batch of knobs that I am shipping out tomorrow, and my mill will be freed up for spacers after today. Will PM you in a few with details.

    Yep, I just have nothing finished right now and would have to make them by "order". Lead time is about 2-3 weeks or so, as I have a bit of a backlog.

    Yep, I had somebody cut their order in half ... so I might have room for 1 more after you. I also have to check material status. Should have more than enough to cover a few more orders, but I will double check in a few.
