    So I know that the seat height in the Taco's isnt great... and im not sure if anyone around here as ever tried this or brought up the idea, but i am going for it once the sun comes up..

    I will post pictures when I get done with it followed with a write up..

    Should work pretty well, worked great on my WJ.

    Anyone ever try this on their Tacoma?

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    I think raising the seat would be nice, but I see 2 issues:

    1. IIRC the front 2 mounting locations are not on a flat/horizontal, rather they are at an angle, almost vertical.
    2. The steering wheel doesnt go very high as it is, with the extra height of the seat it could be pretty tight getting in and out.
