I built the bracket myself. It wasn't that big of a deal. The issue I had with the master craft mount was the location. There was no way to make it work with a family of 6 ft plus people! My boys are 6'2 and 6'4 and only 13 and 15 years old. They needed some extra room. When I built my mount I moved the seats back about 6 inches. The head rests' actually touch the roll bar. That gives the boys enough room to be very comfortable.

Very nice! What seat did you use to get the " fold flat " option? I want that for the front passenger seat in my JKU so the kayak will fit inside .Thanks.

Can you show a pic of the bracket you built so I can get an idea and make one.

I really don't have a way to get the picture you would need but if you PM your number I would be happy to talk you through it.

That is a an amazing and very useful mod.. I found a couple Chrysler pacifica captains chairs and they look identical to my front seats and want to do this. How did you mount them to the Mastercraft brackets?
