seriously tho i once bought an e series ex church van that somebody had removed the seat from the base welded angle iron in then re mounted the seat on the angle iron about 2 inches back, when i put the seat all the way back i couldn't reach the pedals (im 6"1) and when i put the seat all the way forward my missis still couldn't reach them (5"4ish) i dont have any pics since that van is long gone but it looked like a fairly simple affair if you had a welder handy,
the basically re mounted the whole seat assembly right below the adjuster hand handle on the angle iron which thet had welded to the sheet metal thats about 10" high and supports the whole thing
I did a move on both of the front seats, mainly the passenger side for the wife as she found that it was to close for her.
Now I did mine a bit different than moving the full base back.
The base is in the same spot as stock but the track area has been added on both the base and the seat.
There are angles and extra bolts but now the seat is up about 1 1/2 and goes back about 3 inches.
I should take some photos of the set up that I did... It is by some outside of the box but I have no box....

Here is how I did it. Remove the seat, leave the mount bolted to the floor. Drill 4 new holes behind the existing holes, I think I was able to go 1 1/4" to 1/1/2" back, reinstall the seat, it feels like it was moved back a foot!
I ended up cutting two pieces of 2" x 3/16"wall sq tubing. Bolted them to the floor then redrilled them 3" further back. This raised the seats 2" and moved far back enough that I don't have to use the very last position. The 5'3" Mrs can still move enough forward to drive it. Most people would do better with 1-1/2" sq tubing.
