Maybe that raised mount on the driver's side is supposed to act like a dam. When a driver slams on the brakes in a panic stop, all that crap the average person shoves under one's seat wouldn't come flying out and jamb up under the pedals.
Since we are on weird seat questions , why are my leavers to let the seats tilt forward in the middle of the car , ie not on the door side . Makes getting in the back anoying , I thought they were just swapped until I looked under there too .
Maybe it's just a carry over from the SJ410 model. My 1985 SJ410 has the same set up, but the seat dosen't slide foward at all, the whole assembly tilts forward to allow access to the back. Just a thought.
