    If a wide seat is too wide you can check out the Bostrom ProRide. That’s what I have and I’m happy with them. The Bostrom WideRide didn’t fit my butt at all. I hated them.

    I like the thinner version, I think it's 1" thick vs the commonly advertised 2" thick one. I found the 2" version to sort of collapse sideways in an annoying manner when it's on a cushioned seat. Doesn't do it on the steel chair they display it on in the truck stops.

    Also they used to make them under a different name, they were blue instead of purple, you might be able to get a deal on the blue one on ebay or some such.

    I have a Knoedler that I only used a few months. Bought the one with heat and cooling, and thought maybe the heating element and cooling insert was the reason it was miserable, so they replaced the bottom cushion with just the memory foam. No such luck. If you have a boney butt, I don't recommend. Got an Sears Atlas and am happy with it. ETA: I sat on a Minimizer @ 4states, and it was the hardest most miserable seat outside of a wooden bleacher in an elementary school.

    Good prices and no hassle shipping, if you know what you want : On Highway Truck Seats | Air Ride Seats | Suburban Seating

    On the Knoedler - It feels really nice when you first sit down with the memory foam especially, but after everything compresses, it just got miserable. Even my $100 office chair from Staples doesn't do that. It makes it tough to find what works, even if you can sit in it at a store for a few minutes, it's not the same as 8 hours. I had my choices down to either the Sears or a Bostrom Pro Ride.

    I'd like to sell the Knoedlers, (I did a matched set when I put my truck together), but I just can't sell them to anyone with a clear conscious. Sucks, because they are one of the nicest LOOKING seats I've seen haha.

    I’d recommend checking out the Bostrom Pro Ride series. I prefer the mid-back over the full-back, but both are nice with the Serta memory foam. I usually swap them out every 3 years since the leather starts to wear (my dogs jumping in and out I’m sure speeds up the breakdown of the leather).
