Plenty of headroom but the upper windshield frame isn't that high so the view gets obstructed a bit. It's still the most comfortable seating I've had in a vehicle though, now that the slack is taken up in my legs by the risers.
I am 6'6" and have a high BH-EH ratio so on my '06 LJ my head is banging the roll bar all the time. I moved the seat back 2 inches, but now I need to figure how to lower it at least 1 inch. That fold/tumble/recline seat mechinism will not be easy to lower. I think I'll need to eliminate the fold forward feature and hopefully be able to retain the recline. I have a '07 Dodge Caliber that has a seat that "cranks" up and down. I am thinking about spending an afternoon and seeing if the Caliber seat can be adapted to the Jeep. That crank up and down feature is pretty nice.
