Have any of you lowered the front seat base or lessened the cushion thickness in the front of a 443? It appears that anyone in the 6 range has their eyes right at the top of the glass.

Bigger problem with the tuckers is the leg room. I drove a lovely white camo 543 that was quite the challenge for 6' and boots.

My 1443 is slightly better. My 442A was roomy after the rebuild.

Nice view out the windshield as is on any Tucker going up or down the steep and deep.

And remember in a Tucker you are always looking down on other cats!

and in a 442/542 by removing the fuel tank out of the cab and into the frame, under the rear flat deck, makes for a LOT of room inside the cab, excellent relocation project, add a bench set up on the flat deck and off into the back country.
