Haven’t been in an LX yet, but the seat is raised quite a bit. Even my feet don’t touch the floor when the seat is turned around to the rear. The slide for the step cover stands proud to the floor, so the seat is higher yet. Is the LX that way?

My '93 WB and the LX both have not been a problem for my wife to put her feet down on the floor, but I will admit if the seat is moved all the way forward she still can't reach the footrest on the panel under the dash. She needs on built it to the chair, like they have on recliners. But her feet do touch the floor. I did drop the seat as low as it would go using the electric controls.

Yeah that could be a PIA. Make it small enough to sit on the seat when it isn't occupied by a butt

Everybody is short compared to Jim!
Carols feet did not touch the floor either.

My last coach we cut the pedestal down.

I would like to see one of those plastic things.
Wonder what they are called?

My M380 has a Pedal Extension Attached to the brake pedal, it’s screwed on and covered in carpet material, I don’t know if it Plastic or not...
It’s a very comfortable position...

The Co-Pilot seat is higher than the Drivers seat and Ruthie’s feet don’t touch the Stepwell cover, but that’s OK cause she rests her feet on Hoosier.

And she’s Taller than most of you fellas... HaHaHa!
