Help with lowering seat - 2014 Prowler 1000

Can anyone recommend a cheap and easy way to have the seats lowered a few inches on a 2014 1000 xtz? Any instruction would be greatly appreciated!

It would entail cutting/unbolting a frame member and lowering it. Not sure if it would be worth the effort. I have a square tube Prowler, and I replaced the stock metal seat pan with a piece of flat aluminum. It lowered the seat 3/4" , Dropping the seat frames would cause the dog house to not fit. Can you post a picture of the frame area?

I'll do some research! I've heard on several different sites about lowering the seats, but these were all square tube Prowlers.

It looks like a fairly simple job! I'd cut/unbolt the frame member front and rear and check for any obstructions under the lowered seat area. I think they use 1 " square tube for the seat cross member, so I'd have new mounting tubes welded front and rear, and bolt the cross member back in. You may have to extend the lip on the plastic seat pan up to fill any opening on the dog house, and may have to put a support in for the dog house, but it should be a great project! Go for It!
