Take the front passenger seat out and sit in the second row on the right side. I did not think anyone had trouble with the leg room on a Commander.

no. seat is all the way back and knees in the dash. I considered if we buy it unbolting it and bolting it down further back but didn't know if yall had any thing better. Suprisingly enough I'm not as cramped in the back seats as the front passenger nor is the drivers seat a problem

How many of you have sat in the front passenger seat? I am right at 6' and it is a little uncomfortable. Wonder if you could move the seat back.....

maybe

I looked at it again this morning and I would like who ever can to go out to their commander and look at the passenger seat and tell me if you think this will work


I think i can unbolt the slides from the floor board mount and back it up

then go around behind the seat and undo the stops. It looks like the seat should slide back another inch or so with just the slide stop removed.

If i could get the seat to slide back a couple of inches more i think i'd be ok

i don't want to buy this Jeep and it be so uncomfortable i can't ride in it

My moms Honda Pilot has more room in the passenger seat but I WANT ANOTHER JEEP DANG IT

Very strange, my passenger seat goes back as far as the drivers seat. Does yours?

same here.

it may be that the glovebox is lower than the panels under the steering wheel though.

can't look at the Jeep to confirm as wifey has it with her 300 miles away. I will look tonight when I get to her
