    had the same problem ,helped a lot to get one of those beaded seat covers and wearing loose fitting canvas pants. Guess denims cause a lot of issues with air flow.

    When I pulled pneumatic we used to take salt to Redbud Energy in Luther OK. They didn’t allow you to sit in your truck while unloading and you had to wear FR clothing. I swear I lost 10 pounds every time I went there in the summer.

    I mostly like the seat cushion I bought on Amazon. It has the seat bottom similar/exact copy of the Purple brand seat cushion but it is inside a neoprene cover. The neoprene doesn't breathe enough for me so it get's swampy. I should probably put it in a cotton cover or pillow case and get rid of the neoprene.

    If you mean Saxx, I tried them they were comfortable but the pocket part was not very good. You have to reach down and put your boys back in it everytime you use bathroom.. Not really practical in public men's room. You can't just pull them up and go. You have reach down to get them in the pocket part every time.

    Funny thread subject. Someone needs try Step One and let us know if they work. The pocket part is not as separate.
