90 truck cab elbow room

Evening guys, wondered if anybody else has tried to create more room in the cab by installing different seats.
Been eyeing up some sparco bucket seats which look really thin at the top maybe giving an extra inch or so.
Love the truck but would love a little more room so I don't feel like a half shut knife while driving it.
Ronnie

Might consider a smaller steering wheel as an alternative. It's in my bucket list.

Got quite a small one fitted, seen a few trucks parked with bucket seats fitted and thought room might be the main reason

Just watch the seat base thickness, you can loose headroom with some of the seats. The most elbow room can be had with a Qt challenge seat.... but there fibre glass and not the most comfy for long distance. My truck cab has some after market seats designed for jeeps going in, pic's here and in my build thread.

That's nice!
I have Toyota mr2 seats in mine but I think they take up more room in the cab than oem. Look on my registry for pictures

I'll look at both once I figure out how all this works

Guy I bought if off had the interior recovered and brand new Land Rover seats, he made a good looking truck but mechanically needs a few bits and bobs sorted.
