I found some of the parts needed to put in a height adjustable passenger seat. The whole bottom metal frame have part number 68276604AG. This is used for Rhd vehicles. Some Web part pages have nice exploded views with all partnumbers

then some more things like the leaver for the adjustment and some plastic covers are needed too. And maybe add the lumbar support too. Can be found in the pictures on the Web pages.

Then I found a potential problem. Passenger seatbelt got a pretensioner mounted to the seatbelt bracken on the seat. If a crash the airbag system will activate this pretensioner. I wonder if this piece still can be mounted to the new metal frame.
Anyone who know?

I may get the things and make a try as a hight adjustable passenger seat will be a good addition.
They do exist in England and it is a pity jeep don't allow this to be Orderable here in US as an option. Passengers should also be allowed to sit good.

Figured out what is needed for a JLU
Lots of smaller parts
Will order it and try to document all the steps. And then share a list of all parts needed.
But it will take a while as I am told some things are on backorder.

Well, my comming 4xe is also on "backorder" so maybe all arrive together.

My wife is short and likes the driver pump up for the seat.
The passenger side she feels she sits so low.
Has anyone tried to raise or install a pump up for the passenger seat.
I installed these spacers for my midget lady friend and she can now see over the hood

Will be following to see how this works out for you, hope all goes smoothly! I am also interested in this for the passenger side of my JLR, 2-door JL's may be even a bigger pain to retrofit...

Still working on Getting parts.
Think I found a dealer who can get them. Seat for RHD some dealers say is not possible for them to order in US as it is export parts. Restrictions from Jeep.

Fingers crossed i get something I soon. At least no message there is a problem with the parts order.

Blocks referenced from amazone rear set will fit on the front set rear mounts and one of the front mounts.
Posibly you can split angled front set mount from slide rail to put in spacer as well (front left angled mount and rail in the pick)

wondering if the mounting points are the same..I mean, jeep wouldn't put 2 different tubs in depending on right or left hand drive, would they?
in theory, it's a good idea...IF the mounts are the same for the RHD "driver" and the LHD passenger

I installed the Seat Jacker from Desert Does It.

Just the front for me and I did the front and back for the wife on the passenger side. It worked out well and they are easy to install.

Getting the last missing screws today and intend to do the job in this weekend.
Will try to document a lot step by step and list what parts are needed.
Adding lumbar support too as I have the seat apart.
