So I dropped the seat as low as it would go I think. I measured from the center seat seam to the flat part of the ceiling, tape measure at a slight angle as I have a sunroof. It measures at 34". I have a 30" inseam and like the seat somewhat forward so take that into consideration. It would probably be better to measure from the floor at a set distance back as the way I measured is easily off a bit.

6'3 210 here and long arms/torso/short legs. 36x32 pants. XS underwear.

my head is about 1" from the roof. enough to make me wonder if id survive a rollover.

im comfortable to drive with the seat all the way lowered, and slightly reclined (my arms > 6'3" span might help with this)

What did you do in terms of the airbag system? Did you put a resistor in place or did you just let it be? Iíve found conflicting info on if the airbag system gets disabled if one component (I.e. seat) is removed.

Sorry to bump this thread, but I was wondering if you guys were able to keep your airbag system enabled while having an aftermarket seat? I've been thinking about swapping one in, if I can find more info on this

No worries about bumping, its the top google thread when researching other seats. I saw a resto-modded land cruiser that used BMW 5 series seats and looked awesome, but as the dude above asked, would the airbag work like the stock 4runner seat does? Its a daily driver, I'd like to keep the side pillow if I get t-boned.

Just wondering if anyone found a way to increase legroom and headroom in their 4th gen runner?

A little tired of driving with my head cocked to the side and never being able to straighten my legs ��

I also looked into seat replacement and any option seemed extremely expensive. I did replace the seat foam myself and that seemed to be worlds better than the original worn down the foam. I have also seen a few posts along the way of swapped seats from a volvo, but it looks very involved.
How did you replace your seat foam? Mine is worn out on the drivers seat. Thanks.

Lol I did the same. So packed that it felt dangerous but I drove cross country no problem. It felt odd going back to a lounging feel. For sure I have no support from mid thigh.
