    X3 Seat Height

    I like running in fast open desert with the X3RC, but my favorite trails are narrow rocky two-tracks that wind thru canyons, washes, and mountain pass's....and until recently there would be occasional moments on some technical trails, that i would have to lean forward a little to look over the hood....i was ordering some stuff from 'Bent Metal' the other day, and noticed they had some 1 1/2- inch seat spacers that get installed on the two back posts, so i had them throw some in on my order. For me, the little extra height they add, sit me up just tall enough to look over the hood at the trail a lot better!....i luved the way i sat in my stock RC (it is similar to sitting in a
    Porsche), but i really like my new visibility!.....just a tip i'm passing on if you can use it

    I have the same ride as You, same windshield as well. Looks like you have yours moved higher a bit. I dont like looking at the crease in the windshield and have considered adding the seat raisers as well. Canyou see over the windshield with the seat higher ?

    Hi Mike, i do have the windshield raised a few inches, it provides a gap for air to come thru the cab, and keep the dust cleared out, one of the reasons i liked the "Clearly Tough" windshield was the ability to raise and lower it easily for conditions....hey kevin, you guys must have misplaced my phone number....

    I'm 6' tall and considering the 1.5" risers for slow rock crawling. How tall are you guys?

    How tall are you guys and do you have stock seats? I have the CT half windshield and Simpson pro sport seats...I’m 6’ 1 1/2” and with the seats mounted in low position in front, I cut the stock spacers in half and it was perfect for me. Using the stock risers had my helmet about 3/4” from the roof...my setup results in a little more upright seating position than stock seats in stock config and allows me to see right over the CT windshield

    5'11" I think I should have maybe went with the 1 1/2 inch ones. I'm going to leave them in for when I go to ROTR's in Moab and then I'll take them out when I go to ST. Anthony and see if I only want the risers when I'm not at the dunes.

    I just did my first ride with the 1.5 risers, I'm 5-11 and it not only helps me see better, I feel like I can slide in and out of the car better also.
