Default Question about tall people and xlt cabs

I used to own a 94 reg cab. I am 6'5 its was not really comfortable to say the least. What with the steering wheel jammed into my legs every time i got in and out and the back aches on long drives. Is their anyone out their that is my height that owns a 2011 sport or xlt? If so do you sit comfortably? And can anyone with one of those upload a pick of the drivers seat put as far back as it goes. I have long legs so theirs no way im going to buy another ranger if i cannot slam that seat all the way back.


Thanks

i knew a guy who was tall (at least 6'3) and bulky and he had a xlt with expo seats (idk if that makes a difference) but he was comfortable in his truck.

My grandpa just bought a 2011 ranger sport and my father in law who is 6'7 and I picked it up and all he talked about was how surprised he was at how much room there was and how comfortable it is. So I would say you should be good. Im 6'3 and fit in my '97 with some extra room.

I'm 6'1", and I didn't fit too well in the 88 standard cab, but I fit just fine in my 90 ext. cab with the seat all the way back. I could have it up closer, but I like being a bit farther back.
