im 6'1" and do not have any issues with the seat height and not being able to see all of the display. i do drive with my steering wheel at a slight tilt and fully pushed into the dash. I also have the seat adjusted all the way down

Or you just say you are 6'1"...but really 5' 4"
Hah! No way I can prove that on the internet. I could be a cross-dressing circus midget for all you know...At least that would be in the bizarre nature of this thread!

6ft and I also feel the seat could be way lower. I can deal with it but it should go at least a few inches lower. My wife is 5ft nothing so she's fine with it but... Yeah.

Before anyone talks shit my DD is this...

I could tell you, but then....
6’2” and 235.... lots of long trips and very comfortable. It took me a while to find the “sweet spot” with my seat, mirror, and steering wheel adjustment but once I did all was well. Made me realize how much I miss the “fine tuning” adjustments available with a power seat, but no complaints here!

I'm 6'3" with longer torso and had about 1.5" foam padding cut out of the rear portion of the seat bottom back in January. It lowered the seat an inch and was perfect height. Two months ago, I started feeling the seat structural bars and had padding added back and now I'm back to where it was originally. My head touches the roll bar and I'm staring at the top frame of the windshield. Very annoying...never had this problem in previous Honda's, jeep cherokee, Infiniti....etc. I really want a seat lowering kit.
Glad I saw this post. I am in Cleveland and I was going to contact you to see if you it was still working for you taking out the foam. I am '6 4" #320 and I am using the BigBioy Rails and it raised it a little, but the knee room is worth it! I called Scorpion Off-Road Concepts here in Cleveland yesterday trying to see if they have ever done any seat lowering work on a JLU. Haven't heard back.... I will keep everyone posted if I get a positive response...

Thanks...I am currently leaning my seat back further and am slouching a bit. It works for now.
