    Carry your wallet in your front pocket. I've carried mine there my whole life. Riding horses and such dont want to be sitting on a lump.. Same applies for the truck. You dont have that lump pressing on your hip causing your back to hurt. And you know if somebody tries to pick your pocket lol.

    Regular seats too high for my short legs, lo rider too short. Had to add a 2” base to make it right. I’m going back to a regular seat. I think the lack of thigh support causes Me to have hip and back pains. I’d like a recliner centered in the cab, with hand controls for everything on the wheel. Kick back and relax. Lol

    That is a argument to have a lower base under your seat not to ride without äir.

    Mine has a low base and no air. Best of both worlds!

    I can barely get my fingers into my front pocket to fish out change... Let alone my whole #### wallet! When I'm in the truck my wallet goes into a cubby... Only took a few days of driving all day to figure out that the wallet had to ride somewhere besides in my back pocket... Lol

    When you're a geriatric like me no position is comfortable for more than 25 minutes! I am constantly fiddling with my seat. On the floor, up against the roof, and every where in between. All the way forward, all the way back. With a pillow for a while, without the pillow. With my hand under my butt. scouching to the left, scorching to the right.!!!!

    It's a process all day.
    I've got a bony little butt and always have. I haven't carried a wallet in better than 40 years. Can't.

    Money clip in my shirt pocket, wallet in a hidey hole.

    Advise: Don't be skinny, don't get old. Lol

    As soon as I get in the truck the wallet comes out and goes into the little bin under the radio. I have NEVER drove with a wallet in any pocket.
    And once I get going down the road I loosen my belt too.
