I never realized before reading this thread: http://www.dodgetalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=293722 that there was any difference in the Ram seats beyond power, no power and leather. The seat in mine has never really been comfortable and the side bolster is breaking down and looking like crap. It's only got 11,800 miles on it so it's far from worn out. Well, after reading and disagreeing with the above thread I drove near 400 miles on the freeway taking the kids down to see there grandma. Right off, I took notice of the fact that I am not sitting in the center of the seat. I'm actually sitting off of the side of the seat towards the door. Also the seat not being centered on the steering wheel as was posted before is dead on true. I took some time this afternoon to go to the local chevy used car lot to look at some rams. They had both an '07 and an '08. These were 2500's without power seats. In both trucks the seats are centered on the steering wheel. The seat in mine measures 19" wide at the front top edge of the lower cushion as measured between the welting. The 2500 seats both measured 21" at the same place. I'm going to look into this further with the dealership here in town. Does anyone have any info as to why the seats are so different. Is it the plastic side panel vs side flap that makes the seats different? Mine are power cloth with the plastic side panel. Please post the width differences in your 1500 trucks with side flaps or leather. I'd like to figure this out and get the wider seats for mine.
