Sidekick Seat Installation

I'm getting ready to install my new RCI seat in my Sidekick, and have a problem: The inside rails are a few inches higher than the outside rails, on both the passenger and drivers side. Has anybody solved this one? It looks like I need longer legs on the outside, and just a plate in between, that I can bolt the RCI seat onto.

Re: Sidekick Seat Installation

Is it possible to use spacers or a whole bunch of washers. when i installed my s-10 seats in my samurai, i just stripped the frame rails and mounts off of the old seats and made new holes for them on the new seats.

Re: Sidekick Seat Installation

Wellllll... The inner rails (and where they mount, on the side of the tranny hump) are probably about two inches higher than the outer rails. I'm thinking that would be quite a stretch for spacers. I'm hoping to find something a little more solid, and I fear that I'm gonna be into metal fab, before this is done. The mounting studs on the seat are 9 inches apart, side-to-side, so I'm thinking that I should try to put a steel plate across the 16 inches between the current rails. I can't just screw it to the floor, for two reasons - first, it would be WAY too low, and second, because that's where my Rockford-Fosgate Punch amplifier lives.
