Driver's seat

It's it just me? ...or does the drivers seat seem to aim a little left of the steering wheel. I try to center myself in the steering wheel when I drive, but it had always seemed that the seat and a little left. When I sit where I think I should be sitting, the left bolster digs into my left side too much. It gets very uncomfortable on long trips. When I try to even out the pressure on my sides, I see that I'm pointed left again. Is there an adjustment I can make to the seat to twist it to the right just a bit?

'15 JK Rubicon.

I've never noticed the seat being off centre, but from other posts I've read and my own experience the Jeep seating is not very comfortable overall. The passenger seats are terrible, I put the spacers in to give the back seat some recline which helped some. I don't think there is adjustment you can make to point the seat more to the right unless you are willing to remove the seat and McGivor it yourself somehow.

Yes it is! It makes my right leg hurt if I’m in the Jeep for more than an hour. My TJ wasn’t as bad.

This one is simple. Take that overstuffed wallet out of your right back pocket and you'll likely center right up. Like RowlyRowl I have no issues for up to 16+ hours in the seat and have slept there also but I do prefer to crawl in the back to sleep good.

Seriously, I refuse to carry anything in my pockets anymore due to back and neck issues. You'd be surprised what a difference it makes.

If this is what you mean, I would not be surprised. GM is doing this for over a decade now. Steering wheel isn't centered with driver seat:

Or get cosmetic surgery on your butt cheek so the wallet has a cavity to fit into. I thought about that once. But not for very long.

Are we talking about their bank accounts or their asses because they're both about the same size..........

I'm sure we are not talking about the size of their brains.
