Seat help

I have an 08 RC Sport and I hate my seats. If I weighed 350 I probably would not mind so much but I'm tired of sliding every time I take a turn. No support at all on these seats. I saw on a thread someone installed some aftermarket seats and posted a few pics. I look at my seat (drivers side) and the power mechanism looks different. It seems like it's actually a part of the base of the seat, not something that the seat bolts on to. Can anyone help? Is the 2008 power seat frame different and not compatible with after market seats? I'm about to set them on fire. They are nice but sooooo uncomfortable.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

here's a pic of the base

Are you planning on getting rid of those seats?

Well if I can't use aftermarket seats I may sell them to then get SRT 10 seats.

here's a pic of what I got. They are mint. I keep covers on them and the trucks only 2 months old. They are nice but the lack of support is the one thing I hated even on my 04 Rumble Bee.

My main problem is the side bolsters. They are too far out. When I turn it seems like they catch me instead of support me. They are comfortable if all you do is drive in a straight line.

The 09 seats are bolstered better and are starting to show up in the junk yards now. The 09 Ram seats may be a good bet if you can't find 06 SRTs. I looked over an 09 at the local stealership and the mounting points look the same, but I didn't get out the tape measure. I would not doubt that the entire frame on the 09 is the same, meaning you could swap out the backs, bottom foam and bottom covers and reuse your seat bottom frame so you don't have issues with any wiring changes and/or seat position sensors for the air bags.

Another option could be taking your current covers to a shop and having them take out the black middle section and replace it with black suade like on the SRT seats.
