Swivel Seat

Has anyone found a good swivel that will work in the Transit?

Rondo got some swivel bases from Europe and was waiting on his Transit to arrive to see if they worked. I couldn't find a followup to see if they worked.

I emailed SportsMobile about swivel bases last night. They said they have been working on the design for the last few weeks and will have a production passenger seat swivel done on 2-3 months. No plans for driver side because of the parking brake.

Discount van truck lists a passenger side swivel in stock for $199. Has anyone used this? I checked BBB complaints and they didn't fare too well, but if this is a good product I might try them.

TESSMAN:...the swivel is of very good quality....
I took a chance and orderd my seats first that I will be replacing....the rail width is different (14" vs. 17") so I will have to modify the swivel to bridge the gap..... and so it goes....

The torx bolts holding down the seats are off the charts tight.....I can't even get them off...will need to have the shop loosen them for me when I switch out the seats....
