Backbone interchangeability

Post by esspii » Fri Apr 26, 2019 11:06 pm

Is it possible to use the backbone from a convertible on the expedition? There is a 12 inch difference in stated lengths (of backbone). I have the convertible, and am thinking of acquiring an expedition (older model), and have replaced the floor in the convertible with drop-stitch, so I have a backbone left over. If this doesn't work then it looks like I would go for the newer (elite) model of expedition.

The BackBones are specific to each model and are not interchangeable. You would need to get the BackBone for the Expedition if you wished to have it for that model.
