Driver's Seat too High- Help!!!

I have a 2014 JKU with the adjustable driver's seat that even when down as low as it goes is still too high for me. I am 6' 6" and need to remove it or bypass it or something to get myself lower. Looking out the top quarter of the windshield really sucks!!!
Someone help me, please!

Chop off your legs below the knee. Problem solved.

Other than that I would talk with a local fabrication shop to have some of the mounting material removed.

Subbed because I know the feeling. I get tired having to look under the header at lights.

Also subscribed for a solution. Do the suspension/race style seats (Mastercraft, PRP, etc.) that reuse the factory mount sit lower?

Leather seats

I thought of getting replacement seats but mine are leather with the "Polar"emblem in the seat.

I use this with washers on the front bolts under the seat bracket to tilt the seat back just a little.

http://www.misch4x4.com/bigboy_brackets.html

2007-2013 Jeep Wrangler JK - Misch 4x4 Products is proud to introduce its second generation BigBoy seat brackets for the 2007-2013 Jeep Wranglers. These brackets will fit all 2007-2013 JK four-door and all 2007-2010 JK two-door Wranglers. The second generation brackets replace the entire stock seat brackets that attach directly to the floor with Misch 4x4 BigBoy brackets moving the seat back 2 without raising the seat from its original height. This improves the comfort level for taller drivers by increasing the legroom.

How the hell would that help if the problem is the distance from his ass to his eyes?

Put the top down and drop the windshield. Problem solved.

I used 1x3 box tubing and some 3/16th plate along with a chunk of 2x4 box tubing under the right rear corner. Dropped the drivers seat at least a 1 1/2". I now look through the middle of the windshield. I am not a great fabricator but it got the job done. I got the idea from another forum. That is where the picture is from. The only difference i did was I used flat plate instead of the box tubing on the font right corner. oh and move the seat back the two inches because if you don't you will have clearance issues under the font right corner where the floor rib is.
