I've had my 520 for a couple months.  I read on this forum someone said they were 6'3" and they fit in the 520 fine.  Well, I'm 6'4" and I don't.  The bench seat, that I assume was original, didn't work at all.  I had zero head room and had to slide down in the seat as much as I could.  That wasn't easy because then I didn't have any leg room.  So I removed the bench seat and for now I have a tiny little seat in it.  It's basically a forklift seat. 

 

It does the job.  I have plenty of head room, but it's not ideal.  Does anyone have any suggestions on seats I could put in the truck that will give me room and be more like a car/truck seat than what I have now?

 

I'm sorry about the huge picture.  I don't know how to make it smaller.

also, i don't know the size difference between 520 and 521 cabs but jrock has a 521 that he drives all over the place. he's taller than you, might want to get his input or look up the snack shack 521 on here and see if he says what he has for a seat

yeah, that's a decent idea.  I like the idea of bucket seats though.  having the bench high enough to get over the hump makes kinda too high no matter what.

the buckets i've attempted in my 620s didn't leave enough leg room for me, but i'm a very leggy person. i'm more leg than body. take the padding off the seat bottom and throw it in and sit on it and see how it feels height and pressure wise.

I feel like what I have now is pretty similar to a bomber seat, although a quick internet search shows me there might be some better bomber seat options than what I have now.  Thanks for the feedback.

Interesting.  Got pictures?  I didn't have my forklift seat bolted down at first and I was moving all over the place.  Of course it has a metal shell.

That's pretty awesome.  I wouldn't know how to begin to do that and I know I don't have the tools.  I bet that extra room is nice though.
