Sorry, may have missed it in the thread...

So there is a difference between the 2018 and 2019 dash or seat adjustments?

So if it's "like" a 2.0 is it a 2.1.....2.2....? And just how does the engine size change the seat height?

You don't have to put the sun visor all the way down...just tilt it until it block the sun...

6 1 here and there is a certain seat position that has my head/hair hitting the roll bar but I adjusted, good for comfort and the dash info completely visible. I was more worried about the seats rather firm cushioning but spent 8 hours each way on a road trip and was amazed how comfortable the journey was.

My point is, with no major changes from the 2018 JL to the 2019 JL, seems like they may have fixed a lot of the "bugs".

6'1" here. Have the seat all the way back and down. No issues there. In order to see everything in the IP I use the tilt and telescope function of the steering wheel. Took a couple minutes to find that perfect spot and now I'm good.

There’s no difference in the seat or the dashboard is there?

2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited Sahara - Built for shorter ppl

Anyone feel that the new JL model was built for the shorter person?!?! I'm 5'11 and I can't see the reading on the top of the dash. i.e. miles remaining Additionally, if you try to use the visor to block the sun, it's actually blocks your viewing and you won't be able to see while driving.

Anyone know if there's a after part where the seats can be lowered???

Thanks!

Nah, Im 6'5" and im all good in there. I just have to scooch down a bit if im the first one at the lights, but other than that im fine.
I ended up buying some Misch seat extender rails to give me a few more inches legroom if i need it, but it wasnt mandatory.

We are manlets acording to the internet lol.

6 and over or gtfo.
For whatever it's worth 6' tall is above average and I believe 5'4" is below average.

Most products are made for the average sized 5'8" person. I said averaged, I know not everyone is 5'8".

...just sayn
