I can take some measurements once I have them setup and update. The seat backs on the new seats are relatively high, though.

The car jack is a great idea. I can lift it as-is without the seats on it, but I worry it'll be dangerously heavy with the seats on. Between jack stands for support and the jack to lower it back...

Yeah, it looks like the RS42/52/62 has been discontinued. The few that are still out there for sale seem to be priced rather high, in many cases more than the new stuff.

If it were more than 50 sq/ft of carpet, I would too. Doesn't seem like I could even get a carpet company to come out for such a small install.
