Lowest Sitting bolt in seats?

I am getting my Prowler XTZ1000 in a few days and I ALREADY know i want lower sitting seats. Even and inch or inch and half will be nice. I am not looking to do any fabrication I just want to bolt in comfortable seat thats sit lower and also sit as far back as possible. The stock seats leave about inch and half of room behind it. I want mine ALL the way back. I am a big guy over 6ft and 285lbs.

Thanks Guys

Help....

Suggestions, pictures. etc - yes i have searched LOL

I know on my stock seat bases the holes are slotted so you can get the seat all the way to the back so you don't have the room behind the seat when they are all the way back. As far as a aftermarket seat that would sit lower without doing anything besides bolting them in I don't know of any. Good luck and welcome to the site.

Thanks SandChris. At the dealer I was playing with the seats and i didnt see any adjustment capability but i didnt spend alot of time looking.

i just saw tabs in the back that slid in and a post that the seat sets on up front...

Welcome to the site. Sandchris is right there is no easy way to lower the seats. Good luck with your new ride.

I feel your pain, I am 6'6" 210. I have twisted stitch seats in my Cat that go all the way against the bed. It is still a pain in the ass to get in, knees under steering wheel first, than the rest of me. The best way to do it, is to the lower the seats with fab work. Good luck!

Bennett so you feel that the twisted stitch seats sit any lower than stock?

No, they do not. They actually are tilted up a little more than stock which makes it harder to get in. But, as far as comfort, support and safety, they are the only way to go.

Bennett check this out. Maybe a steering wheel with a flat bottom would help you get in easier? Without banging your knees.

This is just a cheap and ugly APC wheel but there are alot of nicer ones///

Here's what I've found to work, makes getting in and out with quarter and half doors much easier too......

In this photo you can see how much room you have without the steering wheel to get in the way.
