Looking for Seat Extenders for "96 F-250 7.3 Liter PSD

The seat on my "96 F-250 just doesn't go back far enough for me. Does anyone else have this issue? Have you been able to find some kind of seat extender? What are ya'lls thoughts on unbolting the seat and moving it back a couple of inches? Any thoughts will help. I'm a first timer and by looking at all the other threads, it looks like you guys have a bunch of good advice. Thanks guys

You must be pretty tall.

I've messed with putting seats in these trucks and moving your seat back shouldn't be real difficult. You might have to bend some of the brackets to fit the contour of the floor and make some spacers to level the seat. Plus drilling new mounting holes.

97 f250 eclb 5spd, 232k miles, 4in lift, 35s, custom bumper and headache rack with lots of LED's, heavy duty LUK clutch and single mass, lots of maintenance, ebpv on a switch, starting performance upgrades soon (hopefully)

It's not bolt in, but anything is possible with fabrication, how tall are you btw? Kause I'm 6'5 and fit my ext cab decently, in my old crew cab I used sd seats and moved them back a bit, another idea tho is move the slides back a couple inches on the mounts
