Just went out to take some pics and can confirm that fallowing the instructions on my 2 door I missed the rivet. I'm fairly certain I would have drilled right through that if it was in the way. I'd like to think otherwise but I doubt I would have noticed and it would be gone if it was in the way.

Including the side of the seat touching the side of the jeep too. I'm not too worried about it, it's only touching the bottom and it had to be super close in stock config. That air bag opens upwards and there's a gap there I'm sure it's fine.

I think with some padding on the sound bar this is going to be as comfortable as I'm going to be in an automobile. My head is kind of in-between the headrest and the sound bar. If I really stretch out my head can still touch the roof with my butt fully flat in the seat all the way down with the 2" drop, I'm a freak.

Just now finding this thread. I'm also a super long torso guy & my head hits the sound bar.

Couple of questions for you all:
1. For those of you with shorter wives - can they still pump the seat bottom up enough to be comfortable to drive? Mine is 5' 7" so not super short.

2. Any issues with rear sear passengers & the exposed sharp edges on the seat rail?

Yes, mine is the same height and after some gruffing about pumping the seat it does work well enough. Maybe not for an extended trip but well enough for around town.

As far as the back seat I have the mopar liners and zero issues. More of an issue to find someone small enough that would fit comfortably.

Get a file, sandpaper and there will be no sharp edges.

Well, everything is back together and it seems I have full travel on the seat with no problems. It was tricky getting the seat rails bolted back to where they belong - there is a little pin that inserts into the frame at the front-middle bolt location and once I noticed that it all came together.

In addition to the instructions needing to clarify that the original hardware is to be used up front for the 1.5" drop of Option 1, I think they should remind you to plug the seat electrical back in before bolting it down. I also found that it helped to take the head rest off while cutting the rails so the seat didn't rock around as much.

I bought a jeep 4 months ago specifically because I knew there would be a solution to me being too tall for it. After the test drive, I can say that all other reviewers are spot on: I finally feel like I am sitting IN my Jeep! Thank you, Desert Does It!

Now, to celebrate

I saw the Beer and realized you're local to me, I'd love to check this out in person, my wife keeps telling me I should get it but not sure without sitting in it first.

Hey guys, sorry about that. It's fixed and functioning now.
