    Hi guys,

    I have similar dilemma, don't know weather to use

    JSP17MFA JetStream Pro Mid Back 16" to 17.5" /40.5 to 44.5 cm
    or
    JSP18MFA JetStream Pro Mid Back 17" to 18.5" / 43 to 47 cm

    on 17" wide backrest of TR3.

    Does anybody have experience with that?

    Thanks

    These backs come with hardware to allow for depth adjustment ("A"), correct? If that's a correct assumption then the decision then becomes whether you want the option to tweak your seating position further forward or rearward?

    Further forward:
    JSP17MFA JetStream Pro Mid Back 16" to 17.5" /40.5 to 44.5 cm

    Further rearward:
    JSP18MFA JetStream Pro Mid Back 17" to 18.5" / 43 to 47 cm

    Will a 16" JSP adjustable backrest fit on my 17 wide" AeroZ okay?

    What did you decide?

    So far, the seller has not responded to my offer. He was slow to respond to my initial contact regarding his for sale notice, so I don't know if he's thinking about it or ignoring me. He did send me pics and the model #, so I know it's a JSP16LFA in good shape with the privacy flap. I'll wait awhile longer for him to respond, before trying to contact him again.

    I almost got one on eBay for $51, but my computer wasn't fast enough to beat the bidding system within the last minute
