Re: Drivers Side Legroom (6'5") JGC

6'5"/ solid 250 here. I have an '11 Summit and find the room ok. I came outa an '08 Super Duty so it took a little getting used to. I did have the seat bottom "stuffed" to give it more thigh support. I have about 22k miles on her now.
I bought the Summit just over a year ago brand new. It has been on several roadies and it is probably the first car I ever had that I do not get sore as the miles stack up! Good luck, they really are great vehicles.

To accomplish this, I want to raise the seat. I can't without hitting the roof-liner.

Also (as has been mentioned many times before), the optimal steering-wheel position may block the instrument cluster.

YMMV
I agree, I'm 6'4" and when I am in a comfortable position and have the steering wheel where I want it I can't see the Speedo needle when i'm going faster than 45 ish.

Re: Drivers Side Legroom (6'5") JGC

I am in a 2011...just got it two weeks ago and am noticing that my right leg feels confined. I am trying to figure out a way to make this work, but am getting that sick feeling... Any tips? I am 6'4".

Try lowering the drivers seat, it moves back as it lowers and makes it more comfortable to drive.

Re: Drivers Side Legroom (6'5") JGC

I am a little over 6' but all legs (34" inseam) and this is the fist vehicle I have ever owned where I didn't have to have the seat all the way back. I do wish sometimes I would have got a higher trim level so I could have gotten the memory seats though. It is a pain to get the power seat settings to fit me after the wife has been driving it.
