    Is the leg room for the regular cab different (less) than the access cab? I know it is for 1st gen as I have had both but can't find a regular cab 2nd gen to try.

    My reg cab has more leg room than the silverado crew cab i had before. I'm 5'11" , I still have 2 or so clicks left behind the seat and have to reach the clutch just a bit.

    Can't speak for the DC or AC though, even though I test rode an access cab, just don't recall.

    i am 5'10, and found both to have lots of leg room, and i needed to slide forward in both trucks to be at a comfortable driving distance.

    I am 6" 2" and I can say for sure the first gen reg cab sucks for my leg length - very cramped, whereas the first gen access cab is OK. Don't want the same thing to happen, but I found a used reg cab a days driving distance and want to make sure before I go to that much trouble.

    Im 6' I have my seat moved one click forward from completely towards the back. Access Cab should have a bit more leg room and be more comfortable since reg cab seats don't recline unless you are one of the lucky ones with bucket seats in a regular cab.
