Ok, went to test drive my first rr tonight... Looked over the truck, was really liking everything, then went to get in... Not happening.. No room between seat and steering wheel? I'm a big guy but not THAT big?? 6'4"..we tried to adjust everything for awhile to see If there was a magic setting.. No luck. My q is this... Does the disco have more leg room? Or has anyone ran in to this and resolved it with seat frame modification?

Thanks,
Brian

Hrmm the steering wheel was the most akward part... Instead of tilting from the firewall, it seems to tilt from the edge of the dash so it just gets an akward angle to it. Sounds like the steering wheel pushes in and out as well as up and down? I don't think he knew that. I may shoot him an email to see how far towards the dash it will retreat. I was concerned when I realized he drove it with the seat almost all the way back when he was a pretty small guy.
I may try again..

I'm 6'4" I have the seat all the way back and the seat base lowered, steering wheel all the way up (I don't think mine goes in and out) and the back of the seat tilted back until my head doesn't touch the roof. good for cruising, nice and comfy.. :thumb:

It does. I pull mine out when I need to access the screws holding some panels in place.

on the left side under the steering wheel (lhd) there is a handle emerging under the signals handles.push it to the left toward the steering whell,then pull it outward while holding the steering wheel with ur 2 hands,the steering wheel will,go in and out from the position as well as up and down.

Have to admit, I didn't know it went in & out myself - but I'm a noob! ;)

Certainly would have helped with the dash screws last week!!!

Um no. I prefer the touch and guess whats happening method. Much more fun. But serious, my classic steering wheel didnt move an inch anywhere, not even a micro. So when i got my first p38 I was just happy the bastid went up and down....
