Anyone figure out a fix for our 3rd gen driver seat?

Has anyone figured out a fix for the typical driver seat rip? Mine was torn and has sunk down so bad that I'm starting to have lower right side back problems.

I was kind of thinking about having the wife try to sew the rip and push the foam back up from underneath if that's possible. I'm actually sitting on part of the metal seat frame while I'm driving. The right side of the seat is the primary issue

I have a 04 SLT Laramie 10x leather seat with console. It is a bolt in, but the plug is cut and you will need to wite it up. I'll split shipping. PM me if interested.

I'll get back with you in a week. I have some things I gotta take care of first. What's "10x" mean?

My truck is a work model, only options on my build sheet were the hemi an the seats, slt cloth are much softer an you always see them ripped on the bottom part where you slide out. Mine you can tell have gotten flat from that where the cushion is breaking down inside like they all do but the exterior part has no rips
