07' Lund Pro-V IFS Driver Pedestal Replacement

Recommended Posts

Isn't that the one that is permanently screwed to the floor? IF so you don't have too many options... another springfield pedestal probably.

Yes it is - I am not sure if you can just purchase the pedestal or if you have to buy the complete base and pedestal? I have not pulled the bad pedestal out yet because the boat it is up at the lake so was wondering if these are the type that go through the base and floor? Does anyone know I would like to purchase a replacement down here in the cities and bring it up this weekend?

Thanks

If you want the best, it is a Springfield Heavy Duty Mainstay Shortie, but they are hard to find, and about $250. Possibly a dealer who specializes in higher end walleye boats can order it for you, I know there is aplace in MI that carries them, but can't recall the name.

It is shorter than most so you are not sticking up so far, and has air ride, and is HD. Lots of walleye pros have used them and recommned them. I have yet to get one, but I sure would like to. Combine that with an Attwood SAS seat and you are in cush heaven. I am getting the SAS seat yet this summer, and possibly the pedistal if the seat itself doesn't do the trick.

edit: BTW I see you need it fast. You might be able to just get the plastic collar, as that went to heck on ours (springfiled basic drivers ped.) this spring, and I just took the collar of another one we had laying around, and it is now good as new... but I want some "air ride" wink

good luck,

Doesn't Lund cover this under warranty? If I'm not mistake Lund uses Swivl-Ez pedestals now.

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
