Misch Big Boy brackets move the front seats back 3-4 inches. Great modification. Do a search. A number of us have them. The driving position SUCKS for tall people. Steeringwheel in your chest and elbows flared out.

I have the Misch "big boy" brackets on mine. I am 6'2" and with the seat all the way back, I am unable to touch the pedals. They are highly recommended.

I'm 6'7" and don't have much issue with the seating. I do kinda lean back more than most though. I'd still like to have more room and have seen the Big Boy brackets in 4wd hardware. May have to try em

When I first bought mine in 2005, or 2006, I had to search for them on the Internet. If they are in 4wd hardware, they must be a hit.
