Passenger swivel seat

Hello all!!!!

I just put an aftermarket seat base that swivels under my passenger seat, the problem I am having is that the passenger cannot turn the seat when sitting in it due to its poroximity to the doghouse. Do the swivels installed by smb have the same problem? Thanks!!!

Re: Passenger swivel seat.

Yes, we have a 97 Chevy van (which I believe has a little more space around the doghouse than the Ford) and I have to get out of the seat, move it to the correct fore-aft adjustment position and then I can turn it around. Not too hard to do once you get used to it.

Hey Chris np. I bought it from the below link, they were pretty good took a week or so to get, installed it in like 15 mins, you may have to get longer bolts to mount it due to its design, very simpleall in all. I have an 06, I believe the stock number is 113631. Enjoy!!!

I have the SMB swivels in my '05 E350 and there is no way that you can swivel the seat with an occupant in it. The easiest way to swivel the seat is with the door open standing on the ground outside the van. Slide the seat ALL the way forward, then 90 degrees counterclockwise then slide the seat back a little then turn another 90 degrees. BTW the drivers seat swivel is worthless if you have the SMB 4x4. The seat can barely turn 50 degrees. I bet you could shorten the shifters about 1" and solve the problem but that's alot of hassel for only 90 degrees. We just use the space to store stuff when we are stationary.

Driver's seat

I can turn my driver's seat 90 degrees (with the Sportsmobile 4x4), but it takes a bit of wiggling. And opening the driver's door helps.
