    Stiff seats that won’t tilt down or go back far enough and no tilt column

    Yeah removing seat or seats make it much easier at least you can lay down. I was just removing old stuff and I think I will remove the seats for installation, might as well I have everything else taken off, rear seat and side panels for running new wire. Luckily I didnt have to remove seat belts to snake new wires in but hate the seat belts for getting into rear seat area always get tangled up in them. Have lump on my forehead from hitting turn signal stalk. Ouch

    I take the driver seat out a lot of times if I am needing to get into the back seat to clean the back window or even the carpet...having a lift in my shop is priceless...:bouncy:

    Not necessarily to it, but picked up an 8.8 with 3.73 limited slip and disc brakes out of an Explorer today with another short axle shaft. Plan on getting it torn down, cleaned up and cut this weekend.
