    Moving the seats

    I'm 6'4" and no matter how I adjust the seat in my TA nothing is comfortable, just not enough leg room. Has anyone ever had the seats moved further back ? I don't know if this is possible but if it is I'm there.

    Sure, its possible! Weld bolts through the bottom of the floor further back! Or drill holes and put a bolt through the top and a lock washer with a nut from the bottom.

    Easy but not that easy, some one did that on my truck now the floor is rotten and cracked and they used the wrong mounts to boot. look at how the factory did it then try to match as close as you can to it. the big thing is to at least add some sort of sreader plate to the floor to beef it up other wise it will flex and you will get problems.

    Thats good advice, I should have added that in, it would be easy enough to do!

    Hmmm.....I'm 6'4" 315lbs (like a football player) and with the seat all the way down and back, and a little bottom tilt for thigh support...seat back "normal" looking...I'm very comfortable, and feel like i'm in the cockpit of an F-22 Raptor!!!
