I put my factory high back seats in the new machine and it is pretty tight getting out of the machine.

I did not notice on the old cat because I dropped the seats 3"

But the 2011 is tight between the wheel and seats getting out and I am a pretty thin guy 6' @185#

Just a heads up for those looking at these seats that have not lowered their bases.

Hmmm ... thanks for the heads up! I'll have to take a look at a buggy that has them to make sure.. I'm glad I have the tilt steering now cuz it would be a tight fit getting out without it.. and that's with the stock seats.. maybe this could turn in to a seat upgrade/lowering all in one.. it never ends!!! lol

Yeah I am wishing the xtz came with tilt because of the seats it would make getting out easier for me.

Just measured the high back they go forward 3" more than the std. seat and the side bolsters are a touch higher.

Getting out is the issue not in.
It is not hard just my legs hit the wheel getting out every time.

Maybe just spoiled from the 3" lowering I had before the new machine.
Have to re-train my exit's.

One more thing.
The seat belt bolt for the lap touches the seat and ripped my drivers seat.

I put the high backs in the new xtz and same thing.
Gotta give that attn after the rear cage is complete.

Got mine on yesterday with no problems. Notice the bolt is close but not touching. Think you might have the seats on the wrong sides?

Very interesting.

I have the bases bolted and installed in the correct position.

I just did tap the tab over today to get the bolt off the seat.

When I first installed them on my 08 it actually tore the seat. However I think that was do to I lowered the seats 3".

But they were still close enough to touch on the 2011.

the guys who have these seats can you tell me more abotu the fit. I am a big guy. 6,1" - 303 lbs. big belly, broad shoulders and big butt, lol. I modified the seat bracket to allow the stock seat to sit all the way back against the bed. Before doing that it has like 1.5" of space between.

Will my butt fit to snug in these seats and does it really make you 3 inches closer to wheel?

The seat does not move you forward 3"

The horizontal part of the seat extends forward 3" over the stockers.

The vertical part of the seat is the same.

I don't know how you will fit but everyone that sits in my prowler loves them!

"The horizontal part of the seat extends forward 3" over the stockers.

Now im really confused, did you say this backwords? lol

The vertical part of the seat is 3" taller right?

I though someone said the seat just made them sit closer to the wheel than the stock ones, maye just how they are bolsterd or somting
