For my middle row, I built a seat box and installed stock reclining front seats and a center console. Definetely much safer than what was in there before, plus I have the additional benifit of the under seat storage.

Why don't you market that as a product?

I find a lot of your mods peculiar, but this is very nice.

Did you replicate the front seatbox lids for the rear? I like it.

Seats installed

Here are two cell phone pictures of the seats installed.

This installation is quite a few steps above the You Tube video showing how to bolt them in. Here the rear tub was notched like a newer tub to allow the seats to sit in the correct location. By doing this not only do the passengers have adequate leg room but the seats are able to flip and tumble correctly and not rest on the front passengers seat belts.

I really like this a lot. I have the same G4 trim on my seats, and would like to add headrests as well. Do you remember where you found the correct metal grommet on the top of the seats for the headrest to slide through?

Does anyone know how to contact him? (Aaron?)

I'm working on a similar setup in my Series 3 109 and have been told it's "impossible" ... and yet, here are pictures of the impossible completed nicely.

any info on how to get ahold of Aaron for thoughts on what was done would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ryan

I think Aaron is pre-occupied with more important things right now.

Ummm... he certainly does look busy... then would anyone else have any good ideas?

As it is, the truck is likely going to have the wheel wells cut into some time in the next 3 days to fit them.

Thanks !

Great pics. This is pretty close to what we were planning, but with a little different mounting points. I was picturing a smaller wedge to go right up agains the existing seat box / floor pan.

I like Spartan's better, but I'm not sure we're up to it.
