    Agreed, the only risers I've found are ones that lift the rear of the seat. These lift the front of the seat which, from what I've gathered is more desirable and unfortunately for the consumer more complicated to produce. With that being said if anyone has a similar product for the front mounts, I'd love to see it.

    I'll add the above names/states to the list.

    I’ve been waiting for someone to do this since I bought my truck. A little expensive but I certainly don’t have the ability, or machinery, to make these for myself.

    :rofl: Haha, I have no idea but thats pretty funny. Are you the person that points out a dirty room when you get those nooodz? :D

    I agree it does sound expensive for just a couple blocks of aluminum but after the cost of 7075 aluminium, machining, hardware, powder coating, paypal fees, and shipping, there's not a lot of meat left on the bone.

    We looked into steel but the machining cost almost doubled and tooling takes a hit too. Steel risers would cost almost 50% more.

    We verified that they will fit both driver and passenger so if you like what it does to the driver seat, let me know and we'll get you another set.


    Here are the pictures of the Final Prototype.
    • Bolts in with no modifications to 2nd & 3rd Gen Tacomas
    • Fits Driver and Passenger Seats
    • Lifts FRONT of seat 1-1/4"
    • Rear centering steel roll pin (5/16")
    • Made from 7075 Aluminum (Talking the strong stuff that they build airplanes from ;))
    • Includes M10 Grade 10.9 Black Hardware (Reuse factory front bolt, rear/top bolt is coarse thread)
    • Includes Black Powder Coating - custom colors add $ and time.
    • Shipping to folks in the US only (for now).
    I WILL POST A NEW THREAD IN THE 2ND AND 3RD GEN FOR SALE SECTIONS. If you want to be added to the list on page 3 of this post, let me know.

    I'll finally be able to retrieve the lost random chips and/or fries under my seat.

    New folks have been added to the list, check the 1st post in this thread.

    The roll pin shown is not the final pin. The For Sale thread will show the final product with powder coat, roll pins, hardware, and final measurements of seat height.

    @EasyDoesIt do you have an ETA for when orders can be placed? Also, do you foresee offering a discount on a set of two (driver and passenger side)?

    Post #33 has a rough schedule but I'm hoping to better it.

    Edit, if you order driver and passenger there will be a savings, something like $185-$190. Still working it out.

    I'm working on that, I will get it sorted this week but it will likely be paypal. You'll definitely be one of the first sets to ship out.

    Absolutely, I'll add you to the list.

    Sounds good.
