What body? Coupe, vert, fastback?

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

OOps, it is a fastback. When I installed the CJ units, not only did I lose head room, but I also lost leg room, I place them right where the originals were, but now I'm not sure if I will be able to tell where the originals went. Thank You!!

The front edge of the platform lip sits on the rear lip of the frame extension under the floor

Thank You! At this point a visual reference and measurements wouldn't hurt!! If all else fails I will line it up with the lip of the frame as suggested above. Then mount a seat and test it. Thanks again!!

Mount your seat and set them in the car. Adjust it to fit you then tack the platform in place, remove seat, then weld platform. That's how I did it and they fit perfect. I believe I am about 2" further back than stock.

I mounted mine 2" back for legroom....it is a fastback and the rear seats, in my mind, are for show....

When you mounted them 2" back, how did the carpet fit? I got the molded, mass backed carpet from CJ and I could tell my platforms were taller because the carpet did not go all the way to the floor where the back seat foot well would be.

Mine fit ok. Took some time for it to relax over the platforms. One thing I noticed is the seam of the 2 carpets coming together is right at the front of the seat instead on directly under it. Don't bother me much though, way more comfortable.
