2015 GC Seat uncomfortable

So I have had my 2015 limited for 6,000 miles now, and the seats are still terribly uncomfortable. I was just curious if anyone has made any modifications to the seat to make it more comfortable.

I was even thinking about buying a different seat, maybe from the older style grand cherokees that had more cushion. Not sure if it would fit.

Anyone have any ideas?

I like the seats in my '15 Overland. Sorry, can't help you.

The driver seat in my 2014 GC doesn't lower as far down as the one in my 2011. So my head is very close to the headliner. Ugh. Wish I could lower it more

Re: 2015 GC Seat uncomfortable

There was some discussion about this a little while back. Seems the foam in the limited seats is the firmest you can get, the overlands and the luxury packs use lower density foam.

I looked at getting an auto upholsterer to replace the foam in mine, but in the end, sheep skin seat covers did the trick.

FWIW, the Laguna seats in my SRT are insanely comfortable, despite its other issues.

Hi BennO: Any kind of a link for the sheep skin covers that you purchased, I never seem to be able to guage quality of them on the internet. Thanks, Dave
