... Let's get the list going here on this thread so I can get the order put together. As soon as I have a combination of 10 units we are good to go!

Let me know if any questions! Thanks.

thanks!

Ray
Please let me know how to order. I would like a passenger seat base. I have a 2021 Ford E-350 chassis. Seat is standard Ford, no electric.

Thanks!! Jeff

I just assumed they locked at 180 or 90 degree positions. Not a complaint, just asking. My two neighbors who tried it out had the same question.

@ Ray, I PM'd you to order. Let me know what you need from me.

Question: Does this base support the slide adjuster? Or will it make the seat stationary and just allow it to swivel?

My driver side swivel mount doesn't line up quite right with the seat bolts. Does the swivel base need to be drilled out first?

hi James, what has happened here is the seat slides have become misaligned with each other. This usually happens when the seat has been removed from the stock base, and the seat is lifted by the slide release handle. What can happen is the two slides move independently and then become misaligned. This causes the bolts on the slides not to line up correctly with the holes in the seat base.

To correct this misalignment, the best way I found is to line up one seat slide with the holes, and then lift the slide handle to disengage the two slides from each other and slide the other track to where it will line up with the holes in the seat base.

No drilling is required to mount these. They are direct bolt in. Thxs!!

I will get the shipping and payment info to everyone who has inquired. I will do that later today.

FYI - The seat base leadtimes started to get more than a bit nuts. So, I have already pre ordered to make sure we have some for us and not have to wait of get left out! Ship date might slip a bit.

If you really want one or two please get me your zip code (if you have not already) and then payment. I will NOT be able to increase the order towards the end as I have done in the past to accommodate late comers. Thanks!

Thanks Ray - I'll be on the lookout for your PM. My zip is 78620.

I never got an answer to my question: Does the passenger-side swivel base support the slide adjustment? Or is the seat stationary and just swivels?

For both Passenger and Driver - the stock seat slides mount to the swivel bases so all functionality of the stock seat is retained - fore/aft and reclining all remain as pre-swivel. The swivel base replaces the stock seat pedestal.

huh? The forward and rear bolts on each side are at fixed positions....moving the seat on the track doesn't change that. See the red circles. The pre-drilled holes on the swivel mount don't line up with them.
