    I not happy with the factory seat in my new Tacoma. I'm trying to see if anybody has replaced the drivers seat (with Air Bag Sensors) with a aftermarket seat? All information would be greatly appreciated.

    i have no info for you but i may agree with you on the seats. i'm getting used to them and my sore mid/lower back is feeling better after the first 2 weeks but it took a while to get the exact positioning right. i certainly expected a break in period but have never experienced sore back muscles from a car seat...i AM getting a little older though!

    you could always cut the plug and put in a resistor to fool the airbag module that its there. we do this all the time on federal agency vehicles so they can use the vehicle to ram things.

    ^^sounds awesome but wtf does that have to do with getting more comfortable seats and getting rid of back pain?

    agreed on the SR5 seats being uncomfortable. I was getting pretty bad lower back pain and the lumbar support just sucks.

    I purchased one of those seat cushions designed for cars from walmart for about 15 bucks i think (looks like this one but couldn't find it on the walmart website http://www.improvementscatalog.com/...-AA35-DF11-9DA0-002219319097&mr:referralID=NA).

    The one I got has little rubber grippers on the bottom which is nice so it doesn't slide around. Since I use it all the time I ended up sliding it under my cover king neoprene covers. Looks a little strange but its much more comfortable and is a very cheap fix.

    I don't have any issues with my SR5 seats. Several times a year, I spend 12 hours a day and don't have any issues with anything but the headrest angle.

    Good luck finding something comfortable.

    yeah after about 6 hours in the seat my lower back is hurting :mad:
    and I NEVER have had back problems/injuries

    I dont have the airbags in the seat so I may just get something aftermarket, eventually.

    Or I'll just take short trips
