The only ones I found that would work was a '96ish Dodge that seemed a little thin on padding and a 2011 Chevy that is similar to the ones in my '07 truck. My '07 seats are not comfortable for long distance. Considering what they want (minimum $650 each) I really don't want to go with one and not be happy with it.

Anyone have any experience with either of these seats long distance? Recommendations for or against?
Have you checked the width well? As I remember there isn't a full size truck seat that would fit in those cabs. I'm looking for an original one, wish you were close enough for me to get it, that would give you a few bucks for your new seat.
