Stow and Go seat swap

Build projects, things that guys have come up with to make a Pinz better (or worse?) and aftermarket add-ons.

Stow and Go seat swap

Post by MTPinz » Fri Oct 04, 2019 9:57 pm

Has anyone used the Chrysler Stow&Go seats in place of the stockers? I put some in my Vanagon and they're great! Low profile, which it looks like a Pinz needs, and they fold flat with a hard plastic back. The underside has a nice metal surface to bolt to, and they're comfortable to boot. Not sure if the arm rests would interfere or not. Leather and suede looks good in just about anything too.

Not my pics, but you get the idea:

Several of us installed Smart Car for Two seats in our rigs.

A parts-out shop in San Diego is still selling them here:

The Smart Car seats look a lot smaller then the Stow'n'Go's and they are as
about as high as you would want to go -- and at that you have to chop down
the mounts as much as possible. As far as width goes they perfect, could be
about 1" wider and still fit. I have these in my 712, and Monoco's in the 710
and the Monoco's barely fit the width -- tight squeeze with the hand to turn
on the Battery cut-off switch.

The other thing to think about is weight. You will be taking seats out a lot
to access the engine, that happens more than you would think.

BTW please add your Location to your personnel profile info so we know where
you are.

Hey thanks for the info Ron! That's good to know about the Smart car seats, not a bad price either.

I've updated my location. I'll add more to my info when I'm actually behind the wheel of a Pinz!
