Don't worry. A lot of women say size doesn't matter.

I am still trying to figure out how to make the bucket seats more comfortable for long hauls. I have tried the spacer trick (raising the back of the seat) ... didn't help a whole lot. Perhaps I need to raise it even more (somebody in an earlier post said that they raised their seats by 2 inches in the back).

Any comments would be greatly appreciated!

A coworker of mine just bought a Fronty due to the fact when he tried to get in the Tacoma the steering wheel was hitting his thighs bad. The steering wheel does not have an easy to operate and get to "tilt" mechansim so this discouraged him from purchasing a Tacoma. He's about 6'4" and 240 #'s.

I'm only 6' and 180#'s and I rub the wheel getting in the turck too. That did not discourage me from getting one though as it has too many "pluses" going for it still over the competition.

I don't know what the big deal is I'm 6'1 with a 33" inseam and I used to fit into the old toyota standard cab pickup trucks. My 06 access cab is absolutely cavernous in comparison. More head room, more leg room, and the passenger door is far enough away that I'm now thankful the windows and locks are power. I get up into it rather than down into it which in my opinion is easier for tall people rather than someone like my mother in law who at 4'10" would need a step stool assist to get in.

We've had Consumer Reports around the house since as long as I remember. IMHO they seem less objective than they used to be. I get the impression that they've been nit picking toyota for a while.

6'5" here, and I fit nicely. I have a couple inches to spare for head room. I wonder how damn tall the people were that said the Taco is no good for tall people? They must have thrown Shaq in there and asked him what he thought.

Sorry I forgot to mention, that is 6'5" in Canadian - which equates to approx 4'5" American.
