    I built a mount for mine out of 1x2 rectangular tubing and 1/4” plate. I removed the factory mounting “claws” and bolted the bracket directly to the seat. I wanted the seat as low as possible for max headroom with the roll cage, it’s 1.25” off the floor. Mounting like I did cost me the fold & tumble function but I don’t need that.

    I cut out the floor the escalade I got my seats from and grafted it into my Jimmy as I needed to replace the floor and tail pan anyway. This way when the seats are out there’s no brackets in the way of cargo etc.
