Lower Driver Seat?
Hi All!
I hope this is the right place for this question, it says interior modifications but everything seems to be audio stuff. If I am in the wrong place sorry.

Just bought a 2010 1500 SLT, it does not have power seats. Is there a way to lower the seats in the truck? I know with power seats you can usually raise or lower the seats. Problem I am having is when I get the steering wheel in a comfortable driving position it blocks the speedometer. Interstate driving doesnt bother me because I can set the cruise. But driving off the interstate becomes annoying to cock my head down to see how fast I am going. I had a passenger the other day who said I looked like a chicken going after feed. :LOL:

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately there's no way to modify the seat height without taking a cutting torch to the seat frame... I don't recommend such actions. What I had to teach myself to do was set the wheel just above the speedo then teach myself to find a comfortable position for my arms on the center console and arm rest. I typically have one hand at either 3 or 9 o'clock with the other on my leg now, quite comfortable on long drives and it's close enough to respond to the idiots in the city.
