Seat - Full Custom Fab seat brackets

So, I'm a big guy at 6'4" 290lbs. Ever since I got my seat reupholstered several years ago, I never liked the way it sat so high. The seat is super comfortable, but the driving position was awful. I came across the Full Custom Fab Instagram page and website a few months ago and saw the lowered seat brackets. He was out of stock when I first saw them, so had to wait till he made more. It was worth the wait!! They arrived one day last week and I got them installed. The driving position is so much better!! The only downside is the seat moves forward slightly as it moves down, but the trade off is worth it. I plan to have the seat foam cut out some to make up the extra room and have some bolstering added to make the seat more supportive for cornering action. I'll have to get a new seat cover made, but that shouldn't be too bad. I may get some suede inserts this time around. Also, there's no more sliding adjustment since these mount the seat solid. It does have slotted holes on the bottom for some forward/back adjustment before final tightening.

A helpful tidbit for installation: Run 5/16"-18 x 1" (1 1/4" if it has full threads) bolts from the bottom of the cab to make studs up from the floor, then put on a washer and nut. Getting a bolt started through the bracket into the floor is nearly impossible on the rear hole.

Here's the link to the website for these brackets.
