    Lower Stock Seats

    I've been looking for a way to lower the stock seat height. At the seats lowest position, I only have 1 finger width between my head and the roll bar. Anyone know of any solutions? Thanks

    ??? How tall are you?

    See if the seat height adjuster is all the way up, the longer handle on the side of the seat - if the Gladiator has it, that is

    I feel your pain. Do you have a soft top or hard top? I can only fit in the soft tops or my head hits. I haven't been able to find any other solutions.

    I was surprised when I sat in the JL/JT..... BadestCross said it best... you sit IN a JK and ON a JL/JT. I'd be looking for a fix as well, and I'm only 5'10.

    I'm 6'2" but with the seat all the way back and in it's lowest position, i'm directly under the roll cage. Not much room for going over bumps.

    I have the hard top but it's the roll cage that's the issue.

    I talked to Off Road Evolution and they've chopped the back of a customers seat risers successfully and I think that's what I'm going to do.

    I'm 6'5" and I sit in front the roll cage. But my head hits where the hard top freedom panel comes down to the latch.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
