Too Tall for Tacoma?

I was riding in my tacoma the other day and realized that there is not much space between the top of my head and the ceiling of the car... I am 6'1 with a longer torso than legs, anybody else have this problem and have any way to create more space? Is there a way to lower the seats by any chance?

Recline your seat a bit?
I'm not sure there is a safe way to lower the factory seats, maybe after market.

Same problem as you

I'm only 5'9" and I have the same problem as you in my 2003 Tacoma.
I have to duck down to see the traffic light if I'm first in line.

Overall height doesn't matter. I'm 5'9" and I sat next too a friend of mine who is 6'7".
Sitting down, I was 3 inches taller than him.

6' no issues. No safe way to lower the seats short of replacing them with a different style.

I'm with ya there. I'm 6'4 and have my seat reclined so far that no one could even think about sitting behind me. I'm still not comfortable on long trips. I'm always looking at stepping up to a full sized. I just can't bring myself to do it (love my truck and I HATE payments....mine's paid off)

I test drove a'14 reg-cab and I found that ok.
6'4" 235lbs
Not as much room as my '12Camry but good enough to be comfy.

6'5" and 290. No problem with headroom. Door opening could be a little bigger.
