Default Room in a 45 series pickup?

Just wondering if anyone can fit in a LWB 45 pickup "somewhat comfortably" being like 6'4". I X-posted on mud but it seems to be down. I'm having thoughts about a certain 45 I'm hording in here in Colorado.

Would it be somewhat useful for a weekend worker/hauler driver?

It's a miserable fit... You'll only be good for a few mile run to the hardware store. You should still do it though

Much too small. You should trade it to me for my 55.

lol...yes I figured that might be some of the answers...

Should I sweeten the pot and say that it's an HJ45? mmm diesel!!!!

I'm just trying to rationalize if it would be enough room for my tall skinny butt...becuase they are just too cool!

If your 6'4 with a 30" inseam you'll be fine

You know you really want a 55 instead.

If you don't end up getting it, let me know. I'm 5'8" with a 30" inseam. That truck would be a good fit.

A lot of people complain about 45s being too small, especially leg room. Years ago I was reading a thread on the CCOT board and somebody was asking about how to make the seat in their 40 go further back for more leg room. It turns out that the super-easy way to get more leg room is to simply raise the seats up higher. There's tons of head room in a 40 or 45 so it makes perfect sense!

BTW, I fit just fine in my 45 but I'm only 5'9" w/32" inseam ;-)

What do you think would be a good price for an HJ45? It's a 74, Imported from South africa back in 77. They took out the a/c out and put in a heater, H41, H-diesel, been a hunting truck. Pretty minimal rust. Cool smokestack , custom roll bar...neat camo... 3k? 5K? 7K?
