I have searched through a bunch of my TW copies and haven't found the articles on 2R trucks. I know they have been featured. Anyone happen to know what year I should be looking for?
One of the things I was trying to find was information on this door in the bottom of my seat. I remember something about it, but don't remember the details.

Supposedly that changed the firmness of the seat but I never figured it did but maybe when they were new it made a difference . There were a few TW featuring 2Rs , June 1985 for ones do probably the best

Looks like an adjustable Seat Spring Tensioner, that must be the DELUXE Seat! :cool:

You adjust it for the Weight of the individual or the softness of the desired Ride!

Thanks. That narrows it down. I remember the article mentions this feature, but I don't remember its purpose. I realized when I saw it that I had seen something about it before.

"Supposedly that changed the firmness of the seat"

By trapping air inside the seat?

That was the theory. It probably had some effect on very bumpy roads (common in the 1950s) where the driver's butt was bouncing up and down. Agree with 2R5 -- I have never found them to be very effective. I believe they were called Bostrom seats.

How often did you change it back and forth to try it out? I suspect most people just never thought about it.

I looked in my literature and it was called “ adjusto-ride seat cushion “
