Jon, I have a similar problem, I think the seat back is too far back. I had my seat apart a couple of years ago, and on the outside of the seat, there is a sector like part of the seat recline mechanism, with a pawl that sets the seat back angle. I looked at the sector and thought that I might be able to put an additional notch in it to set the seat a little more upright.
At that time, my '96 was my DD and I needed to get the truck back in service (the seat frame cracked, and that's why I had it apart). Bottom line, I've never taken it apart again to cut that additional notch, but it looked like it would not be too hard to do with a Dremel grinding disk.
