Who did you get 4 door extenders from? I'm in need of more space for my height in the driver's seat. I'm leaning all the time.This would definitely be on my must get list. I bought the 4 door extenders second hand from a member and was contemplating getting the grinder out and seeing if they could be shoe horned in to my 2 door but I wasn't looking forward to it.
Who is this that makes a "bigboy" seat bracket? I need to move the seat lower or have foam taken out since my head hits the roll bar or hard top currently.FYI re 2 door version coming
We are actually in the process of designing a new BigBoy seat bracket that will fit the 2-door JL. It is looking like it will be very, very tight spacing but it appears possible. We hope to have prototypes out in the coming months. If we are able to make a 2-door version, we will contact you with more information.
Never mind I found the link in the thread and see it's only for leg room. Does no one else hit their head in their new JL? I can't be alone in looking like a ghetto troller, leaning to the side all the time to avoid hitting my head.This would definitely be on my must get list.

Did you have to notch the wall trim to get the seat bracket from resting on top? When I initially installed it, I just left it on top of the trim but it was causing the trim to pop loose.... so I notched a section out for the seat bracket to go into vs sit on top of.i also just installed the Misch Big Boy brackets on the Driver side of my JLUR and am very pleased with them! I am 6'4" with size 15 shoes. These brackets make driving my Jeep much more enjoyable and I dont get my feet tangled up in the pedals!!
@AKAphoenix I went deep down this path a year ago bc I'm about 6'4" with a longer torso and my head touches the roll bar if I sit up straight. Took it to 2 auto fab shops...one that fabs auto seats. They said there was no room to drop it lower and removing padding was the best option or find an aftermarket seat. I had 1.5" of seat padding taken out by an upholstery shop and it initially helped alot, but I started feeling the support beams in the seat after a month and had the padding added back. I also called several seat MFG and none had any plans to make a JL seat anytime soon. I finally resided to having to slouch a bit in mine.6'7" here. Still haven't tried this, but will need to figure something out for the long term. Don't bother trying this because the new inches of leg room it gives me guarantees i will hit my head on the roll bar, or have to duck my head the entire time i drive.
RIght now I can drive ok, but cannot stretch my chest or neck out. For really long drives, I just lean the seat way back to stretch my upper body. If anyone saw me they would probably think im nearly laying down ha.
I really do need to figure out a solution eventually. I'm not asking for much. 2 inches back and 3 inches lower. It seems reasonable if you ask me...
Let us know how it goesThis thread is very reassuring. I sold my beloved '04 TJ a few years ago after getting in a motorcycle accident and bought a full size pickup which was easier for me to get in and out of. I hesitated getting a new Jeep since I'm 6'4" and am a pretty big dude, and due to physical limitations, I don't bend and flex like I used to. In the stock seating position in my JLU, I have a little bit of headroom and my belly barely touches the bottom of the steering wheel. While I'm working on getting rid of some of that belly, I saw these Misch Big Boy brackets and picked up a set. I'll be installing them this evening (or maybe tomorrow morning). I'm really hoping it relieves the worst part though. The bony part of the side of my right knee hits the 4WD shift stick and after a while it gets pretty sore. If I'm able to straighten out my leg a bit, it should alleviate this issue and I'll be able to drive comfortably. If this works in my JLU, I'll get another for my wife's Gladiator and I'll be able to drive that one as well. (If she lets me that is...)
