I totally agree but I'm just looking at it from a legal point of view. By altering the installation of the seat (even with a washer) you have effectively "altered" the construction/installation of a factory part. Even though the seat couldn't come forward in a collision, I'd have to assume an insurance adjuster would try his/her hardest to win the case against the owner/driver of the truck.

I like what he did...just wondering if altering the installation has any bearing from a legal stand-point.

As for taking away headroom - I think that would be minimal (if even noticeable).
