move the front seat farther back?

my 94 f350 crew cab. with the drivers seat all the way back my legs are still cramped and it would probably be fine if it was an auto but my knee hits the steering wheel when clutching or the dash or door panel. i also have bad knees and the angle i have to put my knee at is uncomfortable/painful. i dont really want to take up any space in the back for passengers but i need more knee room. anyone ever move the front seat back more?
btw... im a good 6'4" and have long legs thats most of my problem lol

1994.5 F-350 2 wheel drive 7.3 powerstroke, ZF5, crew cab, dually, rear air lift with dash gauge and controls, 5th wheel and gooseneck brackets in bed, alcoa's, and a ton of miles (over *474k* and going strong) *now with diy tymar intake, mbrp 3" downpipe to 3" duals, stancor relay, prosport boost and pyro gauges, single mass flywheel*

Remove the front seat, sit in the back?

Denton, TX

I envy those that know exactly which modification to make and in the most logical of sequences. But not enough to trade for my meanderings and misfires.

I'm 6' 4" and almost did this to my 65 mustang lol. Had the same problem as the OP. Legs were cramped and would hit the steering wheel.

In my Superduty though, I have the seat all the way back and the pedals as close to the firewall as they would adjust and its almost not enough.

Depending on how your seat mounts and how your floor is shaped you could re drill the holes ans move it back or build a bracket that welds to the seat and fits in the factory bolt holes.

My RAZR made me send this...

so i unbolted the seat. made some brackets and when i went to slide it back the seat wouldn't move. it hits the seat belt retractors which are mounted on the b pillers just behind the seat back. i dont see any way around it. i like the bench but ive never had anyone sit in the middle in the front so i guess i could put captains chairs in the front
