Default Ranger Driver's Seat cushion

Friends,

I just acquired a 1998 Ford Ranger extended cab with the 60/40 bench seat. Not too comfortable to me as the bottom cushion slants at about 25 degrees to the back of the truck. I would like to raise the back of the bottom of the driver's seat to level. Can that be done without buying a cushion of some sort?

Thanks for the assistance,

Mac II

I don't know if "Level" is a good position but.. back in the day.. a similar sized but longer Grade 10 bolt (think shear forces in an accident, Grade 8 may work fine but hey.. what chances do you wanna run?) and a few large washers did a lot. You might be rather surprised at what 4-7 washers may do for the seating position.

Otherwise Eat McDonalds a few times more a week, put some weight on and feel it all just melt away as you pour yourself into the seat like a yard of wet cement.. LOL jk
