    I’ve had one for 5 years now.
    The seat cushion it’s self I found pretty stiff at first, but it settled in after several months.
    I used to get all kinked up and couldn’t stand up straight when I got out of the truck. That has never happened since I got the Bose. Also my shoulders seem better, not sore anymore.
    An additional benefit, the seat belt would wear a hole rubbing on my shirts. That doesn’t happen anymore.

    That’s a pretty good review.
    How are things holding up after 5 years? Anything else loosen up? Is the fabric/leather patch under your ### still intact?
    Are these direct bolt in with no modifications?
    I wonder what cost is now.
    Seat choice is so important, nothing worse then trying to stand and walk straight after being seated and stiffened up for 8 or more hours.

    R&l had them in some of their trucks. I had an assigned city unit with one and I was not impressed with them. Bunch of hype bear as I could tell. I felt no difference between the Bose seat and other quality air ride seats. R&L stopped putting them in the next round of new trucks, not sure why

    If you hate it after you get it, I will take it off of you. I have hip problems and they are they most comfortable seat I have sat in. The downside is that unless you get the extenders for the front of the seat, they may not be the greatest for people with long legs.

    It’s still works great. In the winter it lost power, but I found it was just the switch. $9 and the was back in business.

    #####, I've been getting holes in my shirts in the collarbone area and been thinking all this time that I must have a hangar with a splinter sticking out. Was using a nail clipper to file down any sharp looking thing on all my hangars, etc. Now I've got a new avenue to investigate.
