Anyone (Aussies in particular) know anything about these suspension seats which seem to be designed to fit in FG's?

Hi Kerry. Still trying to get the pics worked out huh?
I've fitted heaps of them. I'm sure they don't do a specific bracket for the FG yet so you have to fab your own. Not a hard to do. They still retain the slides. It's a bit wierd for us because our DOT won't let us fit a suspension seat if the seatbelts are attached to the cab instead of the seat. So when we fit them, legally we have to but a bolt in the mechanism so that it can't move. Definitely check this with your DOT first.
BTW Kerry if you are a tall guy with long legs its not so simple. Im fine at 5"10 in those seats but if you're really tall we've even had to cut a recess in the cab for the back of stratos seats to slide into.

Thanks. There happens to be one for sale just a few miles from me so I will try to pick it up.

Just looked at the dimensions of the Stratos and measured the Fuso seat. Looks like a flat steel plate with holes drilled in the location of the original Fuso seat bolts allowing the plate to be bolted to the sliders and a second set of holes thru which the Stratos can be bolted should work. Is that how you did it?
