    sat in them at the autoshow... wish they were an option in my 2017, the bolstering fits nice and snug. also, I think the standard 2019 seats are a down grade in materials from what they used on the 2017/2018s

    Absolutely love them, I was on the fence about them but decided to order them anyways. Very comfortable and supportive, makes the interior feel as nice as the truck cost. Only have 600 miles on my truck so far but doing a 9 hour road trip tonight so let’s see how comfortable they are.
    Will report back in the morning

    Love mine. Beautiful and comfortable.
    I have 2 Great Pyrs - so LOTS of white fur around.
    It vacuums out of the alcantra surprisingly easily.

    I had disregarded them because I assumed they wouldn't be ventilated/cooled, was pleasantly surprised when I looked inside one the other day.

    Ended up being 12 hours in the seat due to some detours. But I will say they were incredibly comfortable, I have no pain or anything. Amazing seats IMO

    Figured they were different....mine has the "Shelby" seats,and just figured maybe they were similar style and quality.

    Recaros take a few thousand miles to break in. The seat softens up a hair after a little while. I have 8,000 miles. I can tell a difference btwn my passenger seat and the driver seat. They are still comfortable and supportive and look brand new at 8,000.

    One thing I learned is to not slide out of the truck or slide into the truck. As my last vehicle softened up and wore down the outer pad of the seat . Leather was still good but the padding caused the left side to be lower then the right. I’m doing my best to not repeat that on this truck

    Can’t beat the looks with the carbon fiber combo. For 2400 bucks it’s a no brainer.
