    Again, I'm using TS.com as a "go to place" for non-gunrelated information, but often for mechanical/automotive/technical advice. Thanks, lotsa well-versed people here, and I appreciate it.

    I wish to source: For 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500: Any kit/bracket part on aftermarket that will let the passenger side seat (not bucket, but individual driver and passenger seats type arrangment with occasional seat in middle per factory) recline to a fully reclined position?

    Has anybody been down this road? My wife gets really bored on long trips and wishes to catch a more comfortable bit of a nap via fully reclining the seat.

    Thanks in advance,

    David

    Find in the junkyard an old 55 or 56 rambler. Their seats would fold down as flat as a bed. Just loved it in H-school days. You could alter the hinge area on the P-up (cut and weld) without too much work.

    Let me play devil's advocate here a bit. There is a reason why the automakers are getting away from the reclining seats. In the event of an accident the seat belts are nearly useless as the body will submarine (slide out from underneath the belts). I understand the want for more comfort, but it'll come at the sake of safety.

    Was car dealer for many years and you will not get an aftermarket company alter your seat and make them recline. To much liability. I understand your wife wanting to take the chance, but the people doing the work won't.
