Has anyone heard much about these new BOSE truck seats that I've seen a few of the YouTube truckers talking about? Or better yet actually used one? Just wondering since BOSE has always been a very high quality product so wondering how they stack up to the rest of the field. Also anyone has any opinions on other good quality seat brands they like as well as the brands they hate?

A friend had one of these and said he had to take Dramamine to not get sick. BUT that guy has quit his 5th company in less than two years. So... I would recommend trying before you buy.

Consider; some people handle "smooth" rides different than others. E.g. I handled helicopter rides better than smooth airliner jets.

I hope this helps.

My trainer had a similar one and basically when the truck bounces the seat goes up and down to absorb the shock....which is fine if you have long legs. In his Pete the front hood mirrors were so low I couldnt see them unless I raised the seat. When I did that and hit a bump....the seat then went up and down...causing my foot to lift off then hit the accelerator repeatedly. Stop start stop start etc. So I was constantly lunging the truck if not in cruise control. Hahah not made for short people.

Not sure if its Bose, but prime is offering lease ops special seats for $3,000 per seat... AND they turn then in with the truck!!!!! So some of those seats are very expensive. As stated test them out at different heights. Sometimes I raise up in my own truck to block the sun. I know for sure my foot would come off pedal then lol
