I set the old one beside the new one and didn't see a huge difference. Turned over the old one and saw where the wires had cut deep grooves into the original. This new cushion has some reinforcing material on the bottom to prevent this. Easy install. I went ahead and used the hog rings instead of zip ties. Jumped in and WOW, what a difference. I can't believe how much better and firmer the seat is. Something I haven't seen in any reviews is that the lumbar support works as it should because your more correctly positioned. Geno's makes owning a 2nd Gen a lot easier with products like this. I rarely have a passenger but I'll be ordering one of these for that seat also because it's such a huge improvement over the OEM foam.
Fantastic Replacement Cushion!

I was so impressed with the replacement cushion I ordered and received for my 1996 Dodge Ram from Geno's that I ordered one for my 1998 Ram. This is one excellent replacement cushion if you want to update your seat. Sets so much better and a little higher now. Love it! I am 6'2" and weigh about 250 and this new cushion is so comfortable as opposed to the OEM cushion that felt like setting on a hard board. Excellent product if you want to update your old worn out seat.

I bought this improved driver side cushion for my 02 2500 quad cab and I am so happy I did. I You Tubed how to replace the metal wires underneath and made duplicated the seat covers myself. I am 6 foot and weigh approx. 210 and It is not to tall or firm for me. It took just a few days to get used to and now I feel like I have a brand new truck. I am thrilled!!!!! Highly recommend!!! Also, that steering wheel cover that Geno's sells is fantastic!!!
Fantastic Replacement for 23-year-old seats!

I absolutely love this cushion! The door side of the original cushion was so crushed down that the back of it was almost level with the seat back adjustment lever. I'm 100% happy with it (I did the passenger side, too). This cushion is much more supportive than the original one. The degradation of the original one was so gradual, like that of a shock absorber, you don't appreciate how dead it is until you replace it. The side vinyl on the original covers had also cracked from being compressed all these years, so I also installed the Geno's OEM-style cloth covers. Fitting the new cover required quite a bit of work, as the new cushion is more robust than stock. I ran into a installation issue, though not anything to do with the Geno's cushion. It's about the poor build quality at the former Saint Louis North plant, where my specially-ordered 98.5 2500 was built. The instructions tell you to remove the four 10mm self-tapping screws from the seat cushion frame. Well, my driver's seat only had the two in the front. One back bolt was missing, and there was some odd bolt in the remaining hole. The odd bolt turned out to be a 1/2", with a nut securing it on the other end. I was fortunate in that since I was replacing the seat cover, too, so I had no problem ripping the cover and cushion out to get easy access to the nut at the end of the bolt. Got the frame out, and discovered whoever put this seat together had completely stripped out the spot-welded piece holding the threads, so that the original screws could not be used. Obviously not wanting to the right thing and admit they ruined this part, they just decided to scrounge up a bolt/washer/nut and only secure one side. Should anyone else discover something like this has been done to their truck, I used two Hillman 5/16-18 x 13/16 Body Bolts to re-thread the holes and secure the back of the frame properly.

CAME OVER FRIDAY AND GOT A REPLACEMENT SEAT CUSHION FOR MY 2001, 2500 DODGE. WOULD LIKE TO SAY IT FITS GREAT SITS LIKE A NEW TRUCK. THANKS FOR THE WONDERFUL SERVICE AND FRIENDLY SALES PEOPLE. 5 STAR RATING. THANKS KENNETH
sits way to high
Jul 8, 2020 | By Brenden
I wish I had noticed more of the reviews that commented on the cushion being way taller. I'm 6' tall and 170lbs. Even with the seat as low as it will go I feel like my head is at the ceiling looking down at the steering wheel and gauges. The seat foam is also hard as a rock. I no longer sit in the seat... it now feels like I'm sitting on a wood park bench. It totally changed the ergonomics of the driving experience. I don't even want to drive my truck anymore. now I have to try and find another option because I threw my old cushion out.
Owner Response:Brenden, I'm very sorry the cushion did not work out for you. This is a very popular cushion, but we understand that comfort levels vary by individual. Please feel free to return for a full refund if it does not meet your needs. If you need return information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are glad to email you return information. Thank you.
best thing ever

Very easy to install in my 1998 Quad Cab. What a delightful difference!
No more 4x8
Oct 24, 2018 | By Dave
My 01 Dodge seats were in bad condition. when we travel I couldn't last longer than 4-5 hours behind the wheel before by back and legs were killing me. My wife's (passenger) feet wouldn't touch the floorboard so I had to put a 4x8 in the cab so she could rest her feet. Well, I came across these seats and decided to take a $250.00 chance. All I can say is wow I wish I had heard about these sooner. I just spent 10 hours behind the wheel with no problems and my wife's feet rest on the floorboard. I highly recommend these seat cushions. The best $250.00 I've spent in a long long time and now I don't have to spend big bucks on a new truck. Thanks Geno

This seat is awesome compared to my old one. Would highly recommend this seat cushion
May 30, 2018 | By Steven Warren
Ever since I've owned this truck I've always been frustrated with the drivers seat leaning and being so low to the floor. My wife got me this cushion for my birthday. The installation didn't go as the instructions suggested. I read them and watched videos and tutorials of the process but I found no feasible way to remove the seats from the cab, so I ultimately decided to just rip the old one out including the cloth cover and put in the new one just as is and then I bought a seat cover and put over it. I am amazed at how high up I am sitting now and it is very comfortable compared to the old one that was worn completely out, causing my back to hurt while driving. The product itself is outstanding, but I was disappointed with the difficulty of the installation.

Seat cushion is firm and supportive
May 19, 2018 | By Bill Caver
I wish I had done this easy swap years ago! Didn't realize how bad the original cushion had gotten, until I installed the new cushion. Wow! Now to the passenger side! Thanks, again, Geno's for a quality product, great customer service, and wonderful instructions, with everything I purchase.
It is great
May 18, 2018 | By Sam
Got this cushion for my 01 as the 200k miles had really beat the original. Found an upholstery shop here and he was able to match my leather material and wow, it is nice to sit on. Thanks to Genos

If you are thinking about replacing your seat cushion, wait no longer.
Jan 5, 2018 | By Tim Knowles
This seat cushion is worth every penny. Installation is pretty easy, (don't take the whole seat out there's four bolts holding the cushion bracket on) and the way this cushion feels is awesome. Nice and firm, and only being 5'7 this cushion also boosts me up a few inches so I can see way better. And I also am much more comfortable with bumps in the road, as this cushion does a superb job at "cushioning" the impacts. Would definetly recommend

2001 dodge seat cushion was a perfect fit and really comfy
Oct 25, 2017 | By Chris
I got my leg room back, making it more comfortable to drive, and definitely holding you in the seat unlike the old one that felt like you were going to fall out to the left. Only downside for me is it feels like I'm almost sitting too high in the seat (I'm 6'4") I would recommend this product to anyone!
Oct 19, 2017 | By Jon Kettering
Very thick cushion. Very supportive. New oe cover fits tightly but fits with no modification. Puts you up high. Can not adjust down or back far enough. Would give 5 stars for same material but stock size

I'm so thankful you started making these seat cushions.

I used cable ties instead of the hog rings. Works great!
Best improvement you can do!

Feels like a new truck again, better quality than OEM.
Oct 2, 2017 | By Steve Barnes
Great product! what a difference in comfort.
Sep 29, 2017 | By Carl Anderson
This seat cushion is a "10". great feel! Put you back up in your position on the seat like when it was new or better than new.
Best fix for my back!

I've had my 99 Dodge 2500 since brand new and I thought maybe I was just getting old. I noticed the left front seat cushion was flattened and the cover was starting to wrinkle so I bought the new foam piece. First thing I noticed was the nifty bit of cloth glued to the bottom...right where the spring wires had cut slots in the old foam, Next I felt the front left corner and it was noticably stiffer than the old one. Once I got it installed I sat almost two inches higher in the seat but that wasn't the best thing. I guess over the years the left side had sagged more than the right and what I thought was old back syndrom turned out to be sitting on a slant sickness. It is much more comfortable now and I'm not sliding out the door the whole time I'm driving anymore.

Great seat cushion. Very comfortable.

Fabulous replacement for my worn out stock seat and at a great price! A lot more supportive and comfortable as well. Couldn't be happier
Aug 19, 2017 | By Denis
Literally took me less than 30 minutes, to remove and replace new cushion. Huge difference, no more sagging corner.
Aug 9, 2017 | By George Beech
The cushion is just like the new ones. Its is like seat aon a piece of plywood with a towel folded up. But my hips are no longer tilted.
Aug 7, 2017 | By Michael D. Showalter
The part I ordered was expensive and was an exact match. Very fast service. Thank You
Jul 31, 2017 | By Jeramie Spears
The cushion was great. Fit well, easy to work with, and feels a lot better than the old one. I'd say its going to last a while.
Jul 25, 2017 | By David Downs
WOW! This is great. Wish I had found you years ago.
Wow, now I sit up straight like my Mom likes!
Jun 24, 2017 | By mark mullins
I purchased this seat a couple weeks ago after seeing it on Geno's site a couple years back. If I had realized just how much it mattered in my case I would have ordered it a lot sooner. My seat was broken down pretty badly I guess because now instead of having to run my electric seat adjustments full up, I am having to adjust them down somewhat to keep me at a correct height. I am only 5' 8" but at full up adjustment I am looking at the windshield trim. Not sure how but with my seat condition I have been sitting kind of cockeyed instead of square in the seat and from what I can see so far in about 2 weeks of driving it's been way easier on my back when driving any distance. I've mostly driven around town, no more than 30 minutes but we did one camping trip about an hour and a half each way last weekend. I mentioned to my wife how much better my back feels when driving with this new cushion. so I have to recommend it 100%. Only negative is it didn't have the 2 velcro strips along the sides just to the inside of the bolsters to hold the seat fabric down but it doesn't seem to be too far off the cushion. Since my a$$ helps to hold the fabric down, I guess it doesn't matter right? If you've got a second gen truck, get a new cushion, you'll be happy you did.

The replacement seat cushion is allot more substantial than the stock cushion, offers better support and comfort. Like always Genos sends good instructions and installation is straight forward.

May 25, 2017 | By Gary m Potter
Seat cushion is great. Instructions say 20 minutes, we managed it in 3 hrs. You should list all tools required for the job. I made hog ring pliers out of old pliers on the grinder. Also the Wife came up with using a claw hammer to remove J-hooks. We will be ordering one for our 2007 ram.
Dodge Ram Seat Cushion

Geno's Garage advertises that their seat cushion will not sag on the left but I noticed that not only is the cushion designed to tall, but also the left side isn't firm enough.

This is a great product. Was fairly easy to install with the instructions and now I am no longer sitting in a hole. Great product shipped fast!
Apr 29, 2017 | By Doug
I was amazed just how bad my original seat cushion was broke down, but after removing it to install the new one revealed that on the left side of the cushion there wasn't even solid foam but large air pockets from improper manufacturing. The instructions made the job simple and it was fairly easy to do. I'm very glad I did it!

This us a great product tp repair driver seat. It is bigger than orginal but still matched and fits well
Apr 12, 2017 | By Matt
I just installed Geno's seat cushion in my 99 Quad Cab and WOW!! I should have done this as soon as I saw that Geno's was offering this cushion. I knew my original foam was wore down bad but didn't know the truck was actually sitting that bad until I installed the new one. It sits so much better it is insane and I sit up so much taller that I had to re adjust the rear view mirror. THANK YOU GENO'S FOR THIS AWESOME PRODUCT.
Feb 23, 2017 | By Brett Robertson
The best 125.00 I ever spent! Extremely easy install, I would highly recommend for anyone with a saggy cushion
worth the bux
Feb 19, 2017 | By BK
Felt like I was sitting on the floor in my 99's driver's seat.. Was very afraid I wouldn't get the old seat cover on over this new foam since they say it's soo much thicker. Was a bit of a struggle, but it was doable, and it was 55degC out. I'd imagine on a much warmer day, with a strong sun, the seat cover would be even more flexible. Feels soo much better in the drivers seat now. well worth the bux and effort. Didn't take long. There are 4 bolts that hold the frame of the bottom seat cushion to the seat frame itself. No need to take the whole seat out of the truck.
Jan 20, 2017 | By Cole
Ordered the product it was a little expensive, but you can't find them very easy anymore, totally worth the money, easy to install and pretty quick shipping to Canada.

drivers seat cushion and cover
Oct 10, 2016 | By jim zalusky
the new cushion is a great replacement item for my truck. The old cushion was breaking down but I didn't realize how bad it was until I replaced it with your replacement cushion .The seat cover is a good fit, I am having an issue with the Velcro not holding the cover to the cushion...I hope this will improve with time/use. Still 100 % better than my old worn / torn seat cover.
Geno;s New Driver Seat Foam
Sep 28, 2016 | By Mick
Took less than an hour to install in my 2001 SLT Quad cab with leather seats. BIG improvement. I only have 38K miles on my truck but my seat foam was junk when I removed it, the wires connecting the springs had cut through the old original foam badly. I only weigh 196 so was not from excessive driver weight., Mick2500, Tucson
Worth the wait
Aug 9, 2016 | By Steve
I've been waiting for Geno's to get this seat foam in stock. The fit is perfect. I am sitting up were I should be. It is like driving the truck when it was new.
Aug 9, 2016 | By Van
After 10 minutes of driving with the new seat cushion, I knew that I loved it. After a dozen years of use, my old seat had been built-up but the base cushion material was no longer providing adequate support. The fabric on the bottom will protect the seat springs rom slicing the foam.
What a Difference!
Jul 14, 2016 | By Terry
I replaced my deteriorated original seat foam on 2nd Gen truck. Better than new, seems like I'm sitting 2" higher driving the truck. Foam install takes less time than removing the seat from the truck.
Fantastic seat upgrade!
May 21, 2016 | By Randall J Hulette
Like the other reviews have said - an unbelievable upgrade! This new foam replaced the original seat foam in my 1999 2500. Wow! What a difference. It's like driving a new truck.
Great Product! Easy to install
May 11, 2016 | By Corey Brock
The removal and install took no more than 30 min. This is the beast $125 I've spent on my truck and it feels like I'm driving a new truck now. Super fast shipping as well! Geno's is awesome!
Seat Cushion Install
Apr 25, 2016 | By John
Once again Genos Garage has come through with another great item. This time a replacement foam seat cushion for the electric seat (drivers side) in our 2000 Dodge Ram 2500. The install took less than 30 minutes. It was a simple process of unscrewing the four small bolts (one in each corner) and the bottom part of the seat came right out; unhooked the four plastic clips and the cover came off; unhooked 3 hog rings; transferred the frame, reinstalled the cover; put back on seat base, and reinstalled the bolts. The whole seat did not have to come out!! This process was followed by the test drive. Wow, what a difference! No more going down the road with a pillow or a towel packed under my left cheek. After driving 12 hours, I do not get out of the truck leaning at a 10 degree angle!! Needless to say, our road trips will be more pleasurable. I think the truck even drives better! Thank you again, Rebecca and Brandon at Genos for all of your help and advice.
