Welcome to the site man, there is certainly a wealth of knowledge to be had here.

Is yours regular cab or extended??

I'm 6'2" and I fit just fine in my extended cab.

Its called the "slide the seat back mod" Super easy. All you do is pull up on that bar under the front part of the seat, push and slide it back.

j/k, welcome to the site! Check out the socal meets that Christian posted!
