I'm 6'5" and about 310-315lbs.  I don't need a shoe horn, but it does get a little snug getting in and out. Working on them is a differant matter. I have big hands, It makes jet swaps a big pain in the a$$.

Leg room is about the same on the 350/400 but the suspension on the 400 is 10X's better than the 350....

The only thing i don't like about the 400's (pilots)  is that the piping on the cage is about half the size so its easier to bend it. It would still take alot but the 350's are a little tougher frame wise. but if you fine a good pilot go for it
So your telling me it can\'t be fixed by kicking it?

The tubing is the same size on both unless it is aftermarket...Some aftermarket cages have larger tubing but stock is the same....
