The current seat in my new truck is not compatible with the Bruno poer pedestal. They want to sell you and entire seat with their logo emblazoned on it. They will not provide a seat without it...some vehicles can use their existing seat..but, not a Silverado. They make additional lifts and some SCI-FI SuperGimp stuff.

So, after a little digging...this is what I found:

This does the same thing as the Bruno, at a better price and it uses existing seating. With the Bruno, I would have had to use a manual, unheated seat. When I pay for something, I want to use it.

Here is more information about this company. The first file shows all the vehicles that will allow the use of their pedestal and use existing seating.

I do have to say one thing about the local Bruno distributor. They ain't in no hurry. No hurry to return phone calls. No hurry to return email. No hurry to get information back to you.

BUT, they are more than ready to want to book an appointment to start the work. I don't think so. Not at $6,000 with me providing the seat! Uncle VA might have a thing to say about that.
