    Mastercraft makes a nice suspension seat. Seen it on TRUCKS TV.

    My brother's Blazer and my Explorer have seats with lumbar support... the ones in my brother's truck suck, you have to turn a handle to fill the back up with air for more firmness as needed... My Explorer, though, has buttons that fill up the back and the sides of the seat with air... along with the power adjusting puttons /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif my truck is big pimpin, baby

    Well, I have 3 bad discs and slight arthritis in my spine, And i am just 26. I would just upgrade the seats. I find it is difficult for me to get into and out of a car, or anything lower than my stock height K5... I really need to be doing the same thing really soon.

    I had the flexsteel seats in mine for some years. You pay for them but they are very nice.
