    I have a 97 f350, and just spent 14 hours in it, my back and *ss are busted. when i got the truck, the seat springs where broken, I tried to fix them, and i did improve it, but not enough for that many hours in the seat.

    what are you guys using for seats in the older trucks? I have a 40/20/40 split and i do like that set up, but i am seriously considering getting some new seats. any ideas?

    I have had a 99 and now an 04 and after too many hours in a truck your ass will hurt.
    Getting out to stretch works for me.

    go to the junk yard! Might as well get heated while you're there.

    Sometimes you will unconsciously tense up and lean forward trying to somehow "see" the plow blade. That will make your lower back ache very quickly. Try to be more relaxed, and move the seat forward (and up straight) more than if you were just driving around town going to the store.

    Thats how our 97 is it only has one position and that is broke. If your not 5'8'' stay out cause you wont reach the pedals. But i keep my seat all the way up and back all the way because i am kinda tall. And my lean is more towards the center where my touch pad is. But i also have a bad neck and back as it is.

    I feel your pain.

    The seat in my 1995 GMC is so worn out that I'm ready to rip it out and try to bolt some bucket seats in there.

    I only wish it would stop snowing long enough for me to do something about it.

    I don't think I'll ever find a seat at the bone yard that is any better than mine.

    I've got Subaru buckets in my 83 Chevy from the junk yard. Very comfy. THey took some engineering to fit but they work.

    I have a '97 F-250 HD, exactly the same as your F-350. The previous owner swapped in 6-way power seats from an earlier Lightning with power lumbar and side bolsters too. They're actually very nice to sit in and you can set it any way you like.
