Moving Driver's Seat Backwards

I have long legs and my '03 Rubi does not provide sufficient legroom. It looks like there is plenty of available space behind the seat with the seat back angle where I like it.

Has anyone simply moved the entire seat to the rear about an inch? What was the degree of difficulty?

Thanks, Ken

Search Jeep Big Boy Brackets. There is a product out there and I believe most have been happy with it.
Thank you Dave Cole, Dynomax, Falken and all the Spec Class sponsors!!

Doug Misch makes Big Boy seat relocator brackets that move the seat 4" back. I'm over 6'6" and I can put my legs out straight while on cruise control. They're available through Quadratec and similar places....not cheap, but clearly worth it!

They also make seat spacers, they raise the seat higher which means more legroom.
