Default Are the seats comfortable in a 2011 RAM?

Looking at pictures on the interent., it looks like the headrest kind of push your head ahead of your body - are the seats comfortable in the 2011 Dodge Ram?

thanks

Mike

Yes the seats are comfy, and yes that Damn front head rest can kinda be a Pain in the A$$. I really dont put my head on the rest but sometimes it pushes forward others it doesnt it all depends on how you sit in the seat and what angle you have the seat back at. Another way around that and I have to try it but I heard it mentioned before, is use the back seat head rest on the 2011, put them in the front. the back seat rest on the 2011 are flat so that might fix it.

Do all 2011 have these large front headrests, or only those with lowback buckets? I have the vehicle on order, but the seats are described simply as Dark Slate Grey "DV" w/Cloth Bucket Seats "AJ". Standard 'Sport' seats I suppose, but I don't know what they look like. My local dealer does not have literature that describes them.

The 2011 quad cabs I test drove had lowback buckets and they seemed quite comfy.

on my 2009, i pulled out the headrests turned them 180 degrees & slipped them back in, looks better, but, you lose the height adjustment

on my last truck i did the same thing, only with that brand, you could take the passenger seat head rest, reverse it & put it in the drivers side & keep the height adjustment & vice versus

I just bought a 2011 Laramie 2500 Crew Cab and I love the seats. Better than any other manufacturer in my opinion. My 2009 1500 sport had the leather trimmed buckets and I liked them as well.

Buckets seats in my 2010 are very comfortable. Did an 8hr+ trip in Sep and only stopped to empty the tank. No painful back or butt.

Don't know if it will work in an '11, but in my '09 I took the front head rest out and replaced them with the ones from the rear seat. Sooo much better. A lot easer to see out the rear window too. Looking for a used set to replace the rears if/when someone rides in the back.
