    Don't know how you tall guys do it in *any* truck but at 5'6 I can make any truck work haha.... but seems like my W9 was best at leg room. Of course I had the seat most the way up unless I was doing paperwork or whatever and then I slid it back and couldn't begin to reach the pedals. Favorite truck overall tho is the Pete 379 Ext. Love it when they replace the headlights with ones from 359. Sorry got off topic.

    4 states in joplin has a corvette style dash to fit a 379 so you can have the best of both worlds lol

    I to wish that the coulums would actually come back towards you instead of just "tipping" back and I wish thaey would go lower. Ideally i want my wheel Low, Close, and Flat-ish

    I helped out a friend of mine who has his head in the clouds, he's 6' 9". Used a Bostrom Wideride on a 3" base. mounted it back 2" and to the right 1" so it would slide back into sleeper for more room. Also had to modify the left arm rest to clear sleeper. Then I built a spacer to move the column out about 7/8" so he could reach the wheel. A small amount of mods on the tilt mechanism so the wheel will tilt farther down, and it fits him fine.
