    Driver's seat too low for me

    We just got a Dodge GC '10, and the seat is too low for me. The Harmony backless lifts me too high. Is there some sort of foam that would raise me a bit higher, about 2"? (Would the Angle adjuster from Diono work? I don't have one to try.)

    Thank you.

    Does the seat itself adjust higher or lower? Like raising your butt...if its still too short at its highest try the booster and lowering it until its right.

    It's a very simple seat. Can't be adjusted. Thanks.

    Re: Driver's seat too low for me

    I know they make orthopedic wedge cushions for vehicles for people with spinal issues, tailbone injuries, etc. They are available in different thicknesses and are made of high density foam so they don't compress down that much. The only thing I would worry about is if it scooted out from under you in an accident. Maybe you could find a wedge and put a vehicle seat cover on over it and some non-slip grip mat underneath.

    I found a seat wedge at Canadian Tire. Not as strong/ thick as I thought it would be, but it works. I hope it doesn't flatten quickly. If it does, I'll look for the orthopedic ones.

    Thanks everyone.

    Maybe a deflated bubblebum? I heard that they had crash tested it deflated even though they don't recommend you use it that way.
