Look good, but too big for what I want.

Thanks!

They do the job nicely, Texas Pete has them and with his air beam set up on the lowest setting there is still no rubbing (even when loaded).

Few pics of my TQR ones for you. Used their standoffs for the bench seat so haven't had to modify the seat base at all. Had to get someone to move the mounts down the side of the backrest to get that sitting 2" higher. Works well now.
