Thanks in advance for any advice or ideas. I bought this Tacoma about a month ago, and converted it into a predator hunting rig last weekend with the help of some friends that are very talented metal workers. We hammered this project out, rust removal, prep, primer, paint, clear coat; built, primed and painted the rack and installed these 5 lug tractor hubs on spindles, for future chair install. Does anyone have experience with mounting chairs on hubs that would be willing to give a brief explanation or share photos? My goal is to end up with shooting chairs with table / rests attached. Thanks again!! I am open to any suggestions.
Thanks for the info. The paint job turned out good, and it was very easy to do. What I am gathering is that we will use tubing that will fit over the bearing assembly, with a plate at the bottom to match the bolt pattern of the hub. I'm not sure exactly how it will mount to the chair, itself, but getting the base figured out is the main concern. Thanks again!
Yeah, a marine pole seat flange is cheap, easy to obtain & leaves a flat deck when not in use. And gives you a wide variety of seats.
Great idea. I know a buddy that built a gun rest for boat chairs. Comes out from the bottom of the chair goes forward and up at a 60 degree angle, then turns back in towards the knees/lap of the shooter. Has a plate to install a Reaper Grip, you can get steady as a rock on it.
