Leg room

I put suspension seat in my 06 rhino, and my wife's knees are like 1/2 inch from hitting the dash. If I put in an aftermarket cage in, is there or have ya heard of any way to mount the seats back further than the stock position?

How tall are you and the wife? most people have the opposite problem, my wife couldn't reach the pedals until i put in the suspension seats with the lowering mounts.

My beer drinkin' buddy... thanks for all the fun this weekend doooo... I had a blast

Would you say that you are sitting higher than before? Or more forward? It depends on the seat. Mine sit a little higher than stock, but they also have an adjustment built in to the brackets that mount to the bases so you can loosen them and slide them forward/back a little bit. If yours don't (I'm not sure how common that adjustability is), then maybe you can drill new holes in your stock seat bases a little further back to get it pushed back some? I don't know if that's possible or not? Otherwise maybe an aftermarket seat base can do that... unless someone out there has some better ideas... just going off what I seen and know.

TOAST NO MORE

Longest downtime record has been set!

Hey Rye was great having you here.....
She said nice try about the naked pics.
I do sit higher, and more forward. When I mounted these seats, I had to put a 9/16 spacer in the rear seat mount, because the back of the seat was hitting the stock roll cage.

I have an aftermarket cage, and when I added new suspension seats, they were pressed up tight against the crossbar, so moving mine back would not be an option. This is something that you would have to allow for if you got a new cage. The cross bar (used for mounting harnesses), would have to curve backwards a bit to allow for extra room for the seats. I'm sure it could be done.

BTW, recover from the party OK?
