I'm 6'8" and fit reasonably well in my 2012 jk. Seat is all the way back and reclined a little bit too much for your average Joe. No adult could ride behind me. Hit my head on the speaker bar occasionally. Knees don't have much room to move around. I drive it daily, and it's not so bad. Don't remember my old yj giving me any problems but the was 12 yeas ago.

I'm 5' 8" or so. I don't have much of a problem getting in but there is a technique. Jeep has a 3 or 4 inch lift and 32's. Now when driving it, I can't really say because so far the seat was the wrong seat and then it was just sitting in there, not bolted down or anything. Once I get it all back together I can see how it fits me.

but she starts and idles perfect and doesnt burn a drop only thing i have noticed with mine is the crankcase ventilation blows oil like crazy if the tube to my cold air intake falls off

I am 6'7 and close to over 400lbs in a TJ. I fit ok, but on long drives it feels like the room gets less or I shift weird in my seat. I read about some misch brackets to push my seat back 4" so can't wait to get that. Other then that it runs great

We are 5'7 and 6'6. Until we get an adjustable driver's seat, my husband isn't the happiest

I am 5'9 and I don't have the seat slider so it can be a pain, but I love my jeep

I am 5'7. I weigh 254. I am 60 years old and I have a 4" lift on my yj.....my personnal opinion is at your height, any jeep you buy may need to have the seat remounted to seat you comfortably. It is also very important that when you are off-roading, you have your seat adjusted so you do not flop around. my rule of thumb: feet should touch floorboard flat, seat should be almost staight up...happy days
