I removed one bolt and went to the hardware store for longer high grade bolts and washers. After test fitting a few washers here and there, I found the combination I was comfortable with. Had to modofiy the seat mounts just a bit, had to cut off a pin on the bottom front of each track just behind the mounting bolt to get the clearance I needed for the added washers.

The best combination for me is 5 washers each side up front, 1 each side in back all bolts replaced with longer high grade 10.9 hardness bolts.

Test drive, feels muc more comfortable and the seat better supports the upper legs distrubuting the body weight better. If the seats had built in tilt, this is where Id set it.

Thank you for this! You may have just saved my back (6'4" over here). And thanks for keeping it on topic...

I did the same, but with a big spacer i had lying around instead of washers. I also didnt cut that little tab that goes into the floor, i think that may be a rather important safety piece, but instead i had to oval out the mounting holes with a drill to accomodate the new angle of the seat. Pretty easy mod and def worth it! Just make sure you get at least grade 8 hardware cuz you dont want that seat coming loose....

For short trips around town I think the seats are great but the first time I sat in the truck for more than a couple of hours I had a different opinion. I notice I sink into the seat cushion under my butt more than I do in other vehicles I have. I've wondered about raising the back of the seat too, probably 1/2" would be enough, but too I've been wondering about finding an upholstery shop to see if there was a good method of firming up the butt side of the lower just a little. Course adding a little something under the rear mounts is less expensive so I'll try that first. That's probably quicker, depending on my procrastination levels, than loosing another 10-15 lbs to see if that makes a difference.
