aftermarket seats for TALL person? :)

I'm considering a new Jeep (currently have a '90). The problem is that they've "downsized" (probably d/t airbag installationthem over the past 12 years - and I don't fit (at 6' 5")

Does anyone know of any aftermarket seats that will give me more LEG room? Currently, my kneesa are against the dash on the new Wranglers!!!! Head room is OK - so I just need leg room.

The YJ hasn't been manufactured for several years now .. so the chances of getting a new YJ is slim. That being said, my Dad at 6'2" has no problems fitting into my Jeep and sitting comfortable.

If what you need is a longer distance between the seat (as far back as possible) and the steering wheel and gas peddle .. you could make a flat-bar adapter out of 1/2" steel plate that you could bolt to the floor and then bolt the seat to the adapter and move it back an inch or two to make it more comfortable for yourself.

The only downside to doing something like that is the people in the backseat might not have enough room for their kneecaps

I've noticed that when jeep went to the new TJs and the newer style XJs, I couldn't fit in them very well and was very uncomfortable! The seats wouldn't slide back as far as I was used to in my 89 XJ and now my 89 YJ. If it wasn't for the uncomfortable fit in the new TJ, i'd probably get me one!
