WK Headroom

I'm a TJ owner and looking at getting a WK as a second vehicle. I test drove an 05 limited 5.7 last night and I felt no matter how I adjusted the seat I felt like my head was in the roof. I own a honda civic and from the stats it says the headrooms are about the same as an 05 wk. I feel like I have plenty room in my honda, so what am I doing wrong. Anyone else have a problem like this??

It's been discussed a few times here but no real solutions.

humm, thats strange , cause i'm 6'3 and still have plenty of head room.
If you have not done this so far, make sure you lower the seat completely down, and when doing so , press down on the front and back of the lowering latch at the same time otherwise it will tilt

I'm 6'1" and I have to get in my WK very carefully. Apparently most of my height is in my torso and not my legs. I never have the seat pushed back all the way, and my head barely fits.

I don't care. I bought it for trail running and I put up with it.

I am also 6'3" and I went from a Range Rover to an 07 GC Overland because it was better to tow behind my motor home
In the beginning I felt claustrophobic but now after 2000 miles I have gotten used to it
The Commander has much more head clearence but it is reported that it will be discontinued in 09 and resale will/is an issue that I did/do not want to deal with
