Thumbs up Driver seat height adjust

not a question, but an observation.


When climbing steep logging roads with the seat in a low position, the hood blocks a lot of the view, especially when cresting a hill into a valley. I had a couple times when I had no idea what was infront of me.

That's when I realized why they put in the driver seat height adjust - to let you sit high when you're driving off pavement so you can look over the hood, and to let you sit low when you're on the pavement so you can see the street lights at intersections.

Use your driver seat height adjust! High for off-road and low for in the city.

I pump it all the way up when I am off-road and I'm six-foot. I get a bit cramped but the view is much better.

I was just thinking about posting on the height adjustment. I love it. It really does enhance the view. I agree, one of my favorite features.

Is there a way to raise or modify a standard seat?

I'm a short guy that used to own a "Trooper" with a raisable seat. Now I'm still a short guy with a stock 4x4 five speed Pat. with run of the mill (low) seats. Is it possible to give them a boost? How? Thank You in advance!

Nice observation, I had always wondered why that option was added with the FDII version. For me though, I have it all the way up all the time anyway since I'm so short.

when i first test drove the patriot, and the salesman pointed it out, it was a major factor in my choice to go with the pat.

I got the seat in my 26e pkg and love it. When I first got my Riot I rode with it all the way down and now I have it up 8 pulls and love the view in town. As a note I am 6'5" and still have tons of head room. Maybe another couple of pulls are in order!

I got spoiled with the power seat adjustments on our '96 Grand Voyager. The height adjust is nice, but doing it manually is taking some getting used to.

I love the height adjuster because I am 5 ft. short. I need it up to see regular driving. Nice feature to have. I would not buy without one.

I'm 6'5" and the wife is 5'4", so it is a very nice feature.

When I first sat in the Patriot as a 6 footer I said to the wife "This is no good there's no head room in it".I looked a right nerd when the cocky sales man wound down the seat height adjustment to his level I nearly punched him in the eye.

It is a great thing, however when my wife drives the Patriot (hers $ baby's anyway) the seat is allways at the top and I hit my head trying to get in, also have to put it way down to see trafic lights.
