Jeremy Regarding Air Ride Seat

Hi Jeremy, here is a picture of the parts I was looking at to either isolate an air ride seat and/or the Rops in that 4320 cab. With some thought I believe you could do both with one design. On the Generation II and newer the cabs are mounted on theses isolators and the seat is mounted to the cab.

My idea was to cut the Rops part way up each leg and put two isolators in each leg sandwiched between heavy plates welded to the legs where the cut is. A seat platform could then be constructed above the isolators.Of course that voids any JD Rops guarantee and this is medium to major surgery.

These parts I found on a 7430 but I am guessing they are the same or similar from Gen II forward.

You understand these are just my thoughts. I have not done this and there is no guarantee of results.
Or keep it simpler and just incorporate the isolators into the seat mounting. Good Luck.

I was thinking by raising it an inch or so should allow for isolation to be used at all the touch points. I did not measure out the pedals yet so that may be a pain. I do not want to make a drastic change to the appearance though.

I was thinking of using a setup like that for the rops at the axle. Did you ever think about raising the whole cab to put a thick isolater between the rops and axle?

I guess I never wanted to change the profile or silhouette of the tractor so I did not think about it very long. I guess you would have to go around the cab and look at all the touch points between the tractor and the cab and see what the impact is.
