    I'll keep you posted on when/how sales will begin.

    question reagarding them rails

    so I'm confused ( as usual ), I read someone mentioning the sizes "there was a 2.5", 3.5", and 4.5" version..." and am wondering what it means. I have a standard 99' VX with the Rocarro seats, should I go measure the width? I would buy a pair for the $50, if the shipping wasn't outrageous.

    Also, there seems to be another thread regarding these... our we double posting?

    The 2.5",3.5" & the 4.5" means the additional distance the passenger seats travels with the extenders installed
    Dakar was just the begining.

    Just for reference I contacted Tone on this item just before....he said $139.00 shipped to 12866; so $50.00, if it's just as easy to install, would a scream'in deal and one half.

    Yup, $50 per set is a steal.

    "Welder Guy" is just starting a business on the side. He does quality work tho. LittleBeast or Tomdietrying can attest to that (they have seen the modified differential brackets that he did).

    He may even be able to come in cheaper than $50 but I like round numbers & since it's already such a good deal, I'll leave it alone. Besides, I wanna keep him happy ... have some more Diff Drops to do. I also want to get him to try a panhard rod drop bracket for those that lifted & experience bump steer (mine has one from Calmini & I don't get any bump steer).

    I'm not going to mess with picking up the mounting hardware for you tho since that'll just jack up shipping cost. You can pick up what's needed at any Lowes, Home Depot, Auto Zone, Fastenall, ...

    You'll need 4 each of the following (actually 8 of the flat washers):

    3/4" long 3/8x16 (grade 8 would be best but not absolutely necessary)
    3/8x16 nut (Nylock would be good but not necessary)
    flat washer
    lock washer

    Installation instructions are simple:

    1. Remove 4 bolts holding seat to floor of VX
    2. Take seat out of VX
    3. Remove 10+ years of accumulated cheerios, popcorn, etc from floor of VX
    4. Use above listed hardware to bolt brackets to bottom of seat. It's important to leave bolts wobbly loose at this point
    5. Put seat back in place
    6. Use original bolts to bolt brackets to floor of VX (only put in a few turns at this point
    7. Tighten bracket to seat bolts
    8. Tighten bracket to floor bolts
    9. Enjoy

    I think these move the seat 3.5" forward. I'll try to measure on mine tonight.

    Yes, there are two more threads on this topic but I wanted a survey so that I could guage interest. Actually one of the other threads was about moving the Drivers seat back for the 'bean pole' VX owners. We haven't tackled that issue yet.

    Tom

    BTW: if you answered yes to the survey, PM me your mailing address & I'll try to get a shipping cost for each.


    Put a smiley after you say that Bub.

    ...then it will be 3.5 inches.

    And congrats..$50 is a GREAT price for all those needing them.

    That's the easy part, just take out the drivers seat & sit in the back...

    70's disco pimp'n shoes may be needed to take up the X-tra slack...

    And maybe some "Angel Flight" polyester pants...
