Aluminum Jumpseat Bases

I'm doing a run of these to be used in-house on a few projects but figured I'd make some extra sets to offer to you guys.

Anyone with jumpseats knows the flimsy particle board bases and up cracking and falling to pieces in short order, especially in the ST's where there's a chance they may get wet. These are a direct replacement made of 0.090" 5052-H32 aluminum and will last the life of the truck.

Price is $220 shipped for a complete set of 4. The first 10 sets will be ready to ship by the end of next week for those interested.

The below photos are of the first prototype, so please read the following remarks:

-The final product will be satin black in color.
-Designed to retain all factory hardware, including the two counter-sunk screws at the bottom, retaining strap, and rubber bumper.
-Corners on the production pieces will have a radius, so no sharp edges.

-Ash

Ash, hoping to come by Wed or Thur to get rack, and would like to bring a set home if available by then.
Thanks

Thanks for the positive words, everyone.

Josh, I'll shoot you a PM as soon as I have a solid date for completion. The revisions have been made to the drawing so now it's just a matter of finding a window to get them stamped out. I'm confident I'll have the whole batch ready to go before the end of next week.

Thank you! The wood seat bases have always been the weak spot, glad you have an alternative!

Look nice but those corners could use a little rounding.

Just something to keep in mind. I have had a couple of sets of jump seats with different hole patterns for the base plates.


Look at your seats to see if these match.

Interesting.

If this is the case, it shouldn't be a significant issue. The plate is held on with a series of wood screws that anchor into the wooden base that the seat is built upon, so it'd just require drilling a small pilot hole to relocate the screws into the new hole locations. I cant imagine the holes for the feet would be any different.

Not a big deal just annoying. One of the reasons badger doesnt put holes in his covers for the straps to hold seats up is the pin has been known to be in a couple of places

Will the run be to demand or just supply? I'd be interested in a set. I need to replace a seat base anyway.

Strange. I have an early NAS truck coming in next week so I'll see if there are any differences between it and the '97 these were replicated from.

The first batch will be 40 plates. I have an immediate need for 3 full sets, and so far I have another 3 sets spoken for.

Do you plan another round? I'll need a set but not yet!

Thanks,

Paul,

Not a problem! I plan to keep a handful of these stocked as consumables, so whenever you're ready for a set just give me a call.

Where were you 5 years ago! ;-) I had to reinvent the wheel on my own and do my seat bases in 5-bar. Turned out really nice, but it will never look stock like yours. Very nice looking finished product!
