Need more leg room

Being 6 foot 4 inches tall with more leg (35 inches) than upper body I was wondering how hard it would be to provide more leg room in my 2013 V6 coupe. I believe I saw where CJ Pony Parts sells replacement brackets that can add up to 3 additional inches. I do not plan on ever having anyone ride in the back seats so I could go back far enough for the front seats to almost touch the rear seats for maximum leg room. Was wondering if any other Stang owner has performed such modification and if so could you provide me with as much detail (parts used, etc.) as possible. Thanks ahead of time for your time and assistance/feedback.

I feel your pain, I'm about 6' 4" also with it all mostly being legs, unfortunately I can't really put my seat back more as I have a manual and need to be able to clutch all the time. One trick I've learned from driving in small cars is to move your seat back as far as you can and then raise the seat using the lever on the side. This usually puts me higher in the seat so my legs have farther to travel down. I know you may have tried this but I'm just suggesting because I never would have until one day my girlfriend drove my car and had the seat raised like that.

I don't know about the longer brackets that OP mentioned, but I know pedal extensions exist. You could combine both ideas (assuming the brackets exist).

I would remove the driver's seat and just sit in the back seat.

But seriously though, with sports cars and coupes, usually taller people don't buy these because of that exact problem. You could try for a different seat bracket. But I am not sure how much better it will be or if any fabrication will be involved.

As you get older you will shrink and fit better in the car.
