I'm 6' 7" and the largest concern I have had going through this purchase has been legroom "knee room", 43.1 specs on the 4 door and it was the same legroom on paper as my wife's Highlander... Now granted, I have taken that Highlander thousands of miles over the years, but it hasn't always been comfortable driving. My daily is a lifted F150 and that has a ton of room for me to stretch out.

Had an opportunity to sit in a FE 4 door and a Manual Badlands 4 door at a Bronco event near Cleveland and let me just say, I am pleased about the knee room that I had. This wasn't uncomfortable for me to rest my knee on the side, especially in the FE as it had AT. I would say for those tall manual drivers, your knee may come close to the GOAT dial, but felt like I had room.

Let me tell you though, there won't be much room behind you for passengers, seat was all the way back and will suit kids, but no 6 footer kids/adults behind a tall driver.

Posted a couple pics of the knee room, you have already seen all the other photos you need if you have been on here for a minute. Hope someone finds it useful, it sure put my mind at ease.

MY21 or Bust!

B pillar was more in my peripheral than I had hoped, but not any bit concerning. I also have a long arm that made the window comfortable. Didn't grab a pic of that.

This is tremendously helpful for me as I am 6'7" as well. I have both a 2-door and a 4-door ordered. I have been concerned about leg room but equally about headroom on the side support, especially while off road. How likely am I to get a concussion while playing hard? Lol.

Also, did you fit better in one over the other?

I love all the tall guy posts and how sophisticated the consumer has become acknowledging that being a certain height doesn't always translate to super long legs and asking for an inseam to have a basic baseline across the various tall people. I'm 6'4" but am more torso than legs so I'm usually concerned about headroom (it rubs on my wife's mazda CX-9) and not legroom.

So you didn't feel tight in the shoulder area at all from the B pillar? Do you have narrow, avg, or wide shoulders? As others have mentioned, there isn't much room there with seat back all the way in the 4 door.

Looking closer at the picture of you sitting in the drivers seat. The B pillar looks to directly in your peripheral when leaning back. Was that the case? Thanks

Average shoulders here, didn't feel tight, but I can tell you I was more concerned about knee room as I have had a fair amount of trouble over the years.

Sitting in the back with the soft top open, I did hit my head on the loose fabric hanging down.

Yes, I would say so, I don't lean all the way back when driving, so I didn't notice anything concerning.
