No, it's not like the hand brake on a sports car. I'll try to post a picture of it tomorrow.
Looks more like a hand pump for basket balls and such.

.....had a seat out of an old freightliner that worked that way-but the shock was shot and I headed to the ceiling of the cab once too many times....replaced with fully automatic sears seat[out of my pocket].....but it was vinal and I got hives on my back and butt[crack]....so I sat on one of those bead things that the swamis use in taxi cabs..,...yes! thy do work!...but my backside had pock marks all the time....so I switched to an cloth covered seat when the seat accidentally caught fire in the parking lot-must be someone was smoking in the cab-wasn't me- I don't smoke.....anyway the new cloth seat lasted for a year till I left Amerigo and went with Goodyear Tire and Rubber.....probably still in use cuz Amerigo is a cheap azz operation.....Goodyear tripled my salary and gave me a college education as long as I worked for them...ah! those were the days!.....geofkaye

I've got a line on a couple of air ride seats out of a HDT, going to call tomorrow to see if they still have them.
What can I do for a "glovebox"? The 4700 only has 2 pockets in an overhead console, and I'd sure like something more since all the storage in my 06 dodge spoiled me. lol

....between the seats-a steel console box-on the floor -or something behind the seat...there was a guy that made an overhead shelf out of oak cabinet plywood and covered it with headliner cloth....looked factory....he was a radio nut and had maybe 4 radios and linear amps with a whole forest of antennas......looked like the back of a COP Car.....geofkaye
