Due to a disabling back problem and my size, I decided to move the driver's seat back about four inches in order to enjoy my 1954 3B again.
The first issue was the rear wheel well which was recessed as shown. We used the existing front of the wheel well to complete this.
The front seat frame arms have to be lengthened.
Or the inboard arm can be bent as we did.
To complete the accommodations for my needs, I added aftermarket side steps and I now remove the steering wheel to enter or exit, as suggested by Copperswilly when he picked up his part I sold him.
I can enjoy the Jeep again!
