Short Wife/Girlfriend Driving?

My girlfriend is kind of petite... Like 4'10". She does like my truck!

I realized, however, that if we're on a road trip, it'd be nice if she could drive, so I started teaching her how to drive stick.

Problem: She can barely reach the pedals, even with the seat totally forward. Anyone else dealt with this or have any ideas?

I don't want to get pedal extensions or anything permanent, because I'm almost always driving it. I told her to get driving clogs as a joke.

Pedal extension may be the only safe way to go, if she gets any closer to the steering wheel she may be too close to the airbag.

Cut a hole in the seat and remove the stuffing, then velcro a chunk of 4x4 timber to each pedal...actually I'm not much help, first thing that came to mind.

Not taking the truck is an option. And, uh, no. Some of you guys may be cool with posting pictures of yourself and s/o's on the interwebs, but I'll pass.

Hey! I just fine

I was hoping I could help as a female, but I'm a bit taller. If she does drive make sure she's not too close to the steering wheel, and it's not good if her knees are real close to the dashboard.
