I agree with all that has been said. I had the seat all the way back in my '00 single cab, but I have it halfway back in my super cab. I'm at 6'3" with absolutely no head rubbing, even with my ball cap on. The only problem I ever have is when I'm first in line at stop lights. I find myself having to kiss the airbag sometimes just to see the light. Other than that, I love the dimensions of my Ranger. If you've been driving something else for awhile, the Ranger will feel strange to you, like you're crammed in. But that goes away pretty quickly. When I test drove my 03 I didn't think it was gonna work out with my height. But after test driving it every day for a week, I got used to it, and now I feel like I have a lot more room to spare.

I fit ok in my 85 Ford Ranger 4x4 (single cab). I'm 6'3-6'4 and around 220lbs +\-. Oh well.

You can modify your seat brackets if you want or get different seats.

Most people are afraid of flipping their Ranger and having the hood come right down on them....well I thought about that too BUT guess it's time to find a rollbar and make a cage or something
