I was a little confused after reading this thread as well since some appear to be different. My 144 has 2 pieces per track. One piece for the front two seats and one piece for the back seat. The seam is right behind the 2nd row. My front track pieces are equal length, my middle rear track is longer than the side rear tracks.I didn't realize the tracks were all one long piece when I was scoping the passenger this weekend. Can you move the second row back a half a row for more leg room?
Do you have any pictures with seats in?jsrmonster -NCV30...is is a VS30 (2019+) post. Anyway more pics of finished rail installed with interwoven vinyl over factory floor. (used in boats...google it) This is an easy project, but really time consuming to get to this point including the floor resurface. No surprise there right?
For the rear there isn't really a great solution so I took a cover I ordered and cut it down. There is no "ramp" to roll the seat out with; not when you go to this rail unless you want to extend it way back. I attached the part number for the rear most trim that I cut down to finish out the rear of the seat rail. Overall turned out nice, looks stock, and with this flooring the van really has a nice feel. I will touch base on the flooring a bit more in my build thread on this weekender I did this on.

+2 for picture with the seats mounted.Do you have any pictures with seats in?
Can I ask where/how you were able to order the passenger rail for two seats? I've been having a hell of a time trying to get them for our 2019 van so we can add a second bench seat.Rails side by side...you have to order the passenger rail for two seats. (part number in pic) Plastic cup pulls off, just has some tabs you have to pry a bit to release. I haven't checked if the back hole (last one) is under the floor...but I assume it is or I will secure accordingly with a through bolt in the frame. I haven't figured out all the plastic pieces needed yet...I ordered a bunch that I think I won't need, not going to get to this for a while as I don't need it on this van...its another one. Pretty simple...just need to pull the floor or raise it and cut out for the longer rail. The back end won't have the ramp to roll the seat out unless you have the rail that goes beyond this one.

I think that's exactly what I did.Has anyone successfully adjusted the rails in a 19 passenger to get a 1.5 position for the front passenger row? I’d like to do this to give my kids a bit more legroom, especially if I go with a custom seat for the 1st row.
Excellent, essentially the back of position 1 becomes the new front position? This looks about right for my goal. Did you use the rails that came with the van or did you have to reorder new inserts?I think that's exactly what I did.
1) remove rails/seats.
2) Measure distance from second insert to third insert (from front of van)
3) Mark and drill a new hole in your rail from the front hole (this will be behind the original second hole).
4) If using a long rail, repeat for farther back insert locations.
You can now install the rail using the second insert position as the front position for your rails.
This is awesome for us (family van) tons of space between passenger row and front seats. Put a small water system/toilet combo on the right left side of the van, right rear has enough room for a 6' person to sleep on the floor. We didn't use the other two rows of seats but if we removed the bathroom cabinet, I guess we could add one back in a pinch.
Yes, that's correct. The holes need to be added to the rail because the front of seat to back of seat spacing is different than the row to row spacing. I did this specifically so I could just use the existing factory installed inserts and not mess around with adding safety rated points, etc... If you are getting rid of at least the back row, this approach should work for a second row as well I suppose.Excellent, essentially the back of position 1 becomes the new front position?
