    Absolutely. The bases and the floorboards themselves definitely need reinforcement. Personally I would suggest new bases fabricated out of square tube. I don't know that it takes Finite Element Analysis or whatever you engineering types do. :) Just good old American overkill with lots of heavy gauge tube is what the majority of small time race teams have done for eons. Something like this I crawl around factory vehicles to see what they have and then build mine 3x stronger.

    I notice several members have used Corbeau seats, either Moab or Sport, both of which I'm considering. There seems to be a mix of those who used Corbeau's adapters, and those who didn't. If the seats can be installed without the adapters, what benefit do the adapters provide? Also, I've seen several references to the fact that the Corbeaus end up sitting high for us tall people. Does this have anything to do with the adapters, or is it simply that the Corbeaus are taller in the lower cushion area than the stock buckets? Thanks

    My Moab’s bolted directly to my stock seat bases and sliders. They sit at least 2” taller than stock. It’s fine for me but if you’re over 6’ I’d say you’d want to cut your bases down. I can’t see why the adapters would be needed so I can’t speak to their usefulness.

    I also am considering Corbeau's. Its sometimes a challenge reading and searching through posts trying to figure out how they will work. I'm tall so figure I'll probably want to cut the bases down however I guess I could try it first and see. I have an aftermarket smaller diameter steering wheel so I doubt that will be a clearance issue but eyeballs at the top of the windshield might be less than ideal (my top is removed.)

    Questions I'm still considering is regarding the Corbeau sliders. It would be nice to have new sliders and I like the double slide locks. However, do the corbeau sliders sit even higher than stock? Do they allow for sliding the seats any further back (my legs could use a few more inches)?

    This has been an informative thread, hope its okay to post these questions in it. Observations and suggestions much appreciated.
