The seat mod increases leg room by removing the stops of the seat and attaching the front legs a few inches further forward. It is a must do for any 80 in case someone else needs to drive your truck. The seat can still crush a leprechaun against the steering wheel if needed.

Does he sell this as a kit? At 6'1" I'm really not that cramped as I prefer to sit closer to the steering wheel than most but on the long trips a little more room couldn't hurt.

I did that mod and didn't like sitting back like I was in a low rider with my head basically by the B pillar. So I had my seat bulked up with a bunch of super cushy foam at the local upholstery shop (Knowles in the Springs) so I got more leg extension by sitting up rather than way back, which is the driving position I like in a truck. Mucho better and just had the passenger side done the same as well.

But the LT mod works exactly as advertised, unfortunately it doesn't come with spinning rims and underbody lights

This is the low pressure power steering hose that let go on the trail. I ordered part number 44412-28160 from Toyota, approximately $25. The Cruiser part is discontinued but the Previa is a close match and rated for ATF. The web also says the line is 10mm not 3/8" but I don't know if that makes any difference.
