How do I tell if I have a +3 cab?


Recommended Posts

When did +3 cabs start? I feel like I have minimal legroom in a 96 RD690S compared to my normal 86 R. I thought the RD was supposed to have a larger cab. Maybe it's a seat issue?

Both should be a +3. All R models after 73 were the same shell.

It's not the seat...LOL

I keep the seat far back and upright...my knees still hit the AC box and the window crank handel...and I'm only 5'10"

Same hear 5'10 and knee in crank and AC. I like my R with no AC have more leg room.

if the seat is in the factory location on the mounting plate you can remove it and scoot it back one hole and it will gain 2" of reaward travel , I have done it to all my R cab trucks over the years, there are three sets of holes you can use in the mounting plate and it is probably in the center hole. Oh yeah and Im 6'2" and I hit everything but I still like the way the R cab trucks drive compared to the newer ones, the new ones ride better but the old ones are planted on the road.

I'm 6'5'' and my left knee pushes a dent in the door panel but I don't hit the a/c box. Mine must be in the back holes because I have a mid back seat and it rubs the back wall of the cab. I ride flat on the floor or my head hits the headliner. I still love my R model though!

I put a Mid Back Low ride seat on one and that is the ticket, the different angle of your legs makes it seem like theres a ton more room in there and the mid back will go back about 2" further than a high back unless you put the seat straight up. I am just biding my time till I can afford my dual Bostrom Low Ride Mid Back Blue Cloth seats for this Superliner(blue cloth will make em look as stock as possible), I got the p/n figured out already I just cant afford em yet.
