Thanks for sharing your video, looks like you got it working, I may try it again one day... Took a little time to align the spacers as I had to use 2 to get the exact 5/8 in height... Thanks

Did this yesterday. I went with the cutting option instead of the spacer. Took all of 5 minutes with a grinder and cut off wheel, plus another 5 minutes of "clean up". Love the ability to fold the seat down, not sure how much i'll really use the option, but it's very nice when working on the amp i have mounted on the back wall. Great free mod.

To those of you using multiple spacers/washers to lift your seat. Please don't do this, it makes the bolt that holds your seat down much easier to bend, and much easier to break. If you are going to do this, do it the right way....not with a block of wood....use a square piece of metal that is as wide as the base of the seat and as tall as you're looking to raise the seat. Hollow or solid metal works, if using hollow metal use two bolts per mounting point. 1 from seat to metal, 1 from metal to frame. Also make sure to use pieces with a thicker wall. These pieces at a local metal shop will cost you about $10, this includes the bolts.

I understand about cutting corners to save money when doing modifications, but when it comes to safety, that's not the place to cut.

Might have to look into doing this to my 09, as I've been thinking of mounting my amp on the back wall, and would like access to it in case it's needed..

My question is, whether its cutting the bracket or using spacers, why is this something Ram didn't do for us. If the option is there and it makes sense to have access to the back wall, why is this a Mod and not something done at the factory. It just seems so easy that it's silly we have to do it.

Just finished mine, didn't gain a ton of room but it's nice to be able to get back there if need be. No spacers just chopped the bottom legs off of the hooks. It still locks secure and doesn't move.

I did it to my seat but I did both options just a less amount of each one. I put small spacers and I trimmed the tabs a little. That way if I ever want to make it so it can't fold down I just remove the spacers.

dmac101 if you shoot me an email at snrusnak@gmail.com I'll give you the oem part number in a couple days. I replaced a seat bolt and believe I will have the receipt in the glove box. Bear with me though I'm reroofing my house so might be a few days.

Hi Guys, I am in the middle of doing this mod for my 2013 Ram 1500 CC and I'm running into some concerns. I used 1.5" tall rectangular steel tubing to raise the 60/40 bench seats up to make room for a subwoofer box. My concern now is that the 60 portion of the back seat seems to press itself into the rear glass, where without those risers it has ~1" of space.

I think this is happening because the seat backs have to rotate a little bit farther before the hooks engage the welded back wall hangers, but I wanted to see if anyone else had experienced this too? The rear window will still open without an obvious strain on the motor... but I can't imagine that's actually good for it to fight against the seat cushion either.

Thoughts?
