Swivel captain chair

Does anyone know if someone has ever changed out the front cab seats with swivel captain chairs?

I added a swivel base to the passenger seat in my 2300. It's a great addition.

I did passenger side only since driver side would hit dinette when turned.

Is the only thing you ordered is the $199 swivel base or was their anything else you ordered with that?

I see there are mounts also

Only the swivel base. You unbolt the seat from its base and insert the swivel base by bolting to seat base and seat. It raises the seat less than an inch and offsets it slightly to center of vehicle (inch or so) to allow for swivel. The lever to activate the swivel sticks out between the legs of the passenger. I trimmed its length because I thought it stuck out too far and added a plastic cap to end of trimmed rod. Took less than 1/2 hour. It was helpful to have a second person to help hold seat while bolting to swivel.

It can be swiveled with door closed by turning and sliding seat forward or back in several moves, but works much better and easier with door open. Turn seat back toward middle of vehicle. It locks in place only in the driving position. When swiveled it can be turned at any desired position.
