what are those of you who are 6 plus feet tall running for seats?

im hoping to eventually put enough power in it to require a roll cage. my floor boards are completly roached. when i go to fix the floors that would be a great time for the cage. that said i dont think i can run a cage and a bench and certainly cant justify a cage and still run the bench.

nothing i set in stone im just day dreaming and attempting to formulate a game plan.

If you're over 6', a cage is not going to work on a 74-76 truck. A 77 might give you enough room but otherwise spend your money on something else. You'll simply lose too much headroom and legroom and won't enjoy driving the truck anymore.

You can put a rollbar in the bed with the main hoop right behind the rear window, in the bed of the truck and still have rollover protection. And you'll never bang your head on it either. The frame is right there you can weld it right to the frame. The condense tank would have to be relocated.

i'm having the same problem in my 74. my seat doesn't feel like it leans back far enough, and the seat is just in poor shape.

planning on installing black buckets to match up the interior, and build myself a blingin stainless center console.

there nothing fancy really, but they look decent, are damn comfortable (friend has them in his transam), and are adjustable. gonna fab up some custom mounts to give the seats a little natural tilt back.
