Junk yard is your best bet for a cheap $20 solution. There is a guy on ExpeditionPortal.com that makes them for like $350, but they are built like tanks. Johny5 https://expeditionportal.com/forum/thre ... st-1875645

Could buy one from him, or make one like it.

Trolls take away from productive work, best to ignore them & go about your business.

Approved for seats without air bags

Interesting, not that it would stop me, but I never even thought about that being a large enough factor.

Doesn't seem surprising, Just a CYA disclaimer. I would think any swiveling of a seat with air bags that wasn't meant to swivel...would be considered a no-no from a liability POV.
