My kirkeys sit at least 3 inches lower then factory, and thats installed at the highest point.

Jegs universal brackets, 17" Pro-Drag Kirkey with black tweed cover. The 18" will also fit width side, 19 will work if you dont have a rollbar, I'm 6'1 and 240 and i like the 17, its just right for me. You can position the seat and mount it whereever you like really, but it seats nice and low.

14.8 pounds with padded seat cover
12.8 pounds without

Brackets


Backbrace

Seat - While it looks a similar height to the factory seat, the bottom is bucketed and in fact ~3" lower

Looks great. It looks almost like your setting on the floor. Is that backbrace part of the seat, or sold seperate? Did you mount your lap belts to the seat or floor?

My crotch belt is floor mounted, door side lap belt is mounted where factory belt mounted, inner side lap belt is mounted with a 9/16" bolt through the tunnel (floor).

Backbrace is something extra, and highly recommended. Ties the seat into the rollbar, keeping you safe. It's an IO Port brace, adjustable length and angle, brilliant, strong and light design. Very simple install

That back brace looks like a nice piece. What did you do to deactivate the
airbags and get rid of the light?

I pulled the light off the circuit board in the cluster and physically removed the airbags and all associated modules/wiring.
