I personally do not like the seats in my Ď24 orp. Very very uncomfortable after about 30 minutes so much so I am considering selling within the year sadly. Iím trying really hard to like this car but the seat comfort is my biggest complaint. Looking into sheepskin to help but hate having to spend another $300-500 just for seat comfort

Seat comfort is totally subjective. Coming from a '99 SR5, I find the seats in our '22 ORP super comfy, even on a long road trip from San Francisco to Boulder, CO and back.
What don't you like about the seats?

SOLVED!

I test drove 4Runners for years, always wanting one but never satisfied with the seat comfort. The lack of under leg support for me, a tall guy, had discomfort setting in within 15-30 minutes.

A web search resulted in posts about this issue and many others who agreed, both 4R and Tacoma. There were several threads about a product called Seat Jackers, by a company called Desert Does It (out of Las Vegas).

There were so many good reviews I took the chance and bought a 2022 ORP, ordering a set of Seat Jackers the same day. I was hopeful, but figured I could sell the 4R if it didnít work.

Iím pleased to report IT WORKED! We installed these as soon as they arrived and 14 months and 25,000 miles later I have experienced absolutely zero discomfort. A true game changer for me.

The product is very high quality and I highly recommend. Iím not affiliated in any way, just a very happy owner.

I am interest in this vehicle but have not been able to find one on a local lot to sit in.

What should I look for or expect to see? Seems like the major choices are between cloth and softex?

For reference, I drove Ford pickups as my go-to-work daily driver for 30 years so am not looking to get into a magic carpet soft ride but need some good butt comfort and reasonable ergonomics for operating the controls.

I personally think they're comfortable for shorter trips, but I don't think long distance trips are their forte. But everyone has a different preference!

Seat comfort level

I can easily say my 21 is not as comfortable as my 22.
The Leather has a slightly stiffer component as the foam filler but the 22 cloth is much softer..

That sucks, sorry to hear.

My issue was discomfort under legs due to lack of support. The Seat Jackers made a major improvement and I have no issues now.
