Thanks guys. Sorry, I think I was a little vague with my question, let me put a different spin on it.
I sit in my 1st gen (1999) with the seatback adjusted to the forward-most position and my line of sight is fine, it's about an inch below the top of the windshield, which is kind of annoying but I've been dealing with it for 19 years and it's fine.
I sat in a 2nd gen (2013) with the seatback adjusted to the forward-most position, and my line of sight is directly pointed where the glass windshield meets the interior headliner. Total no-go, unless the seat were to move directly downward (and it didn't), or I put the seat-back waay back into low-rider mode, which I don't want to have to do: I'm weird and like to sit as upright as possible.
Interestingly, side by side you can clearly see the 1st gen windshield is in a more upright position, and the 2nd gen it is angled in a bit, probably to reduce drag and/or to help deflect road debris with less potential glass breakage. So my big question is, what about 3rd gen? If I sat in a 3rd gen with the seatback adjusted to the forward-most position, would my line of sight be in a better, worse, or same position as the 2nd gen?
Sure I can drive an hour to my dealership and find out, and at some point I'm sure I will, but I thought maybe some of you Taco gurus knew the specs well enough to save me the heartbreak of sitting in a brand new Tacoma at the dealership and breaking down into tears realizing I would have to switch to a Tundra or some other full sized boat.
Or maybe for the 3rd gen, there's an optional seat up/downie adjustor thingie that I hadn't read about? Or the windshield angle is well know to have changed between 2nd and 3rd gen. Or maybe someone else freakishly tall had the same problem and did a seat height hack that made everything good in the world again. Or something, anything - just grasping at straws here really, looking for hope.
