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?
We have built several 48-54 chevy 3100 trucks latley most are using 88-01 chevy worktruck seats they have removeable covers ,no glue ,correct wigth low backs,sone use same year silverado.and do not recover since they are offered in cloth or leather ,I am using Toyota camry seats and console I needed adjustable heighy so i used power in one and 84 Corvette in other because Every thing in it is Corvette ,Engine ,trans ,rear,complete front suspension ,interior and electrical wheels tiresand tilt brackets for hood it will tilt my complete front clip ,so i used seats also
