Lowering Seats

Does anyone have experience with lowering the seats. I have seen and sat in one.....(lowered about four inches) much more comfortable. The owner didn't know, he bought used.

Just got done lowering the seats in my XTZ, it's quite a bit of work. Are you good at welding, fabwork and such, if not, I would hire a fab shop to handle it.
UTVCrap over in Phoenix was one of the first to lower the seats in an XTZ, I don't know if anyone out in California is doing it, but I bet with some searching you can find a shop.

I lowered mine and what a difference. the car handle so much better and felt great I went a little to low and actually raised them back up 2" so I could see over the pass corner dashboard when duning, it had a terrible blind spot. I would recomend lowering for sure.

How much did you initially lower your seats?

You can only go so low.If you remove the stock tank you can go lower. Just remember you need to maintain access to the clutch and or belt as well as being able to pull the motor if you need. In our race Prowler the seats sit 7.5 in. off the floor with good access to the clutch and we can change the motor in one and a half hours. The floor pan is stock.

We cut off the entire cage and started new. Gas tank is in the factory location still and I cut the neck off to about a 1'' from the tank.

when you cut the neck what did you use to mate the two pieces back together? I asume you cut out a section and reattached the top portion to the bottom. I am unsure of where to get the hose to match them back up can you advise.

Prestige can lower your seats and it was a lot of work.
