I took a new Overland for a test drive. I was shocked at how uncomfortable the seats were. Seats in my 2004 Overland are like a sofa! I can drive 10 hrs on a trip with no saddle sores.

I'm also surprised that between this thread, and another lengthy thread on same topic, nobody has identified what the real problem is, which to me was very obvious:

The front of the seat will not raise high enough to support the hamstring and front of upper leg. I'm 5' 11" 170. Pretty standard. I had to slide the seat rearward, practically putting me in the back seat, before my legs would be supported by the seat. The center door pillar was right beside my head...
Wow. My wife and I feel just the opposite... we would like the front of the seat to go down more! DW is 5'2" (and yes, eyes of blue ). I'm 5'8". It's more pronounced for her, of course, but I do wish it went down more.

Re: Hard driver's seat

Have driven a 2015 RAM Bighorn 1500 the last 2 weeks while mine was in the body shop. Some clown took me out in a parking lot.
Cloth seats in the Bighorn model.
When I got my Jeep back, got maybe 2 miles and it suddenly struck me how hard the seats were. My achin' ass. There's a bit of speculative buzz forming about the 2016's. Hope they listen.

Re: Hard driver's seat

Well I love the seats on my 2015 Overland.

I don't feel they are too hard at all. I'm 6'1" @ 220 lbs. and that might have something to do with it.

Re: Hard driver's seat

I bought an altitude new and have always figured the seats to be quite hard in comparison to my previous grand cherokee. Do any of you happen to know of ways to switch the foam to a softer foam possibly?
