It requires a bunch of fab work and relocation of the fuel tank to drop that low. New seat bases alone give you about an inch

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

Its not just a simple deal. You will have to basicly build you cage around your seat drop. You have to lose the B Pillar up right to drop them.

seat

take out the plastic mounts and use the stock latch and tab up the seat pans, you can do it, I've done it to all three of my rhinos with custom seats....much improvement with the center of gravity...

I have the lowered bases already but I'm looking for more. I realized that the tank would need to be moved, and the steering wheel would need to be lowered. I dont have a cage yet but would like to do this first so I can get the cage even lower. I just wondered of anybody has done it and thinks it's a good mod to do or not.

seat

the tank isn't the big problem, its the top of the clutch cover that the seats hit, thats why all these guys make their rhinos as wide as a truck,so they can pull the seats down beside the clutch covers, thats the only option unless you 86 the bases..Then you have to build out the frame and get longer a arms, on and on...then it won't fit tooo nice on trails or in a truck bed....then its soo darn wide you may as well sell it and buy a sandrail or a jeep...so much for the small chasis apeal of the rhino eah?

The seats dont go straight down. They have to be moved out as well.....There is alot more to it than you think.

I agree that they have to go out but I dont think you have to lose the b pillar

I am pretty sure nick and johnnys cars were built with the lower half of the factory cage still there.
