    In driving my base model truck any distance, I find it difficult to stay comfortable. The base model bucket seat only has forward/rear adjustment and a radical adjustment for back angle. I have considered trying to find a junkyard drivers bucket seat from a SR5 or TRD that has more adjustments.

    What all adjustments are built into the SR5 and TRD seats beyond the lumbar support knob?

    My old 98 Limited Tacoma had an adjustment for raising the front of the whole seat as well, thus changing the angle of the lower cushion and the back all at once. A small adjustment here made a lot of difference while driving. Is there anything like this on the newer trucks?

    The SR5 and TRDs just have forward/back/lumbar adjustments. HOWEVER, the TRD seats are firmer than the SR5 seats, fwiw.

    So it sounds like there is not much reason to search for a TRD or SR5 seat, over what I already have.
