They work pretty well....

How much did you cut down the factory bracket to use those 2nd row seats in the front? I've got a 97 Yukon 2 door that I am wanting to do this to.

I responded to your PM, but I'll respond here for the masses as well. I don't really know how much I took off...just started cutting until it fit right. Even if I had measurements, they'd be different for anything other than a K/5....and even if it was a K/5 it still might be different depending on what you'd be using to measure, and where you'd measure from, etc.

So basically...pull the seats out of your Yukon and go to town with it.

Also, glad to report they're still working great, even with another addition to the family. lol

Thought I'd ask the question here again, instead of the PM, so any answer can help others. What spacing did you use for the frame? Does it keep things from shifting side to side well? I like the simplicity of your design vs using the exact locations from the original Tahoe. Also, what size rod/bar did you use? 1/2"?

Thanks
