Most after market seats are going to get you up a little higher. The stock seat brackets on the broncos are pretty pitiful, and the aftermarket brackets are usually pretty well built, which adds to the seat height issue. Not to mention, newer seats aren't broken in yet. So, getting lower is pretty tough.

Maybe the eggflats Very Happy will work, whatever the hell that is.

Maybe those fiberglass " formed " seats?
Homemade brackets and throw a seat cushion on it.

eggflats -- no that's not what you get from the chicken that didn't look both ways before she crossed the road

I'm thinking celica or or nissan 300z type seats. Maybe I'm having an issue with the mounts. The drivers side sits fairly low, but my wife's head almost hits the rollbar in the passenger side.. She's about 5'9" The passenger side seems like it sits about 2"-3 higher in the front. I guess I could fab some new install brackets that sit lower.

I used Ford Probe seats. They are very comfortable. However, I'm 6ft1in my middle son is 6ft 4in. I mounted them to flat stock and then bolted the flat stock to the cab, nothing fancy. So we have to recline the seats quite a bit to look through the top of the wind shield. Plus, our head stick up past the roll cage. So, I'm going to swap them out this spring/summer.
Good luck.

I think my 70 has old mustang seats. I don't love them but the sides are low which makes it easy to slide in and out - the thing is already high so raised sides would be an issue climbing in and out.

I also used Ford Probe seats and belts. I think they are lower than the stock seats. Also, the side bolsters are not so high they get in the way like some seats I have seen.

Same here. I am also using Ford Probe seats as they are really comfortable and also long lasting in sense of durability and it's also not so pricey so you can go for it.

I installed the 07 Kia Rio seats last night. They are really comfortable and bolted in really smooth. I didn't realize till after I installed them that they are just a little too wide for my tuffy console to fit. I'm going to have to move it back a little so it opens behind the arm rest on the seat.
They sit a little lower than the stock seats, but not much. Really comfortable though.
