I have used the tall, medium density (choice of soft, medium, hard), with the hardcore gripper cover on each of my WR's. I am 6'3". I love these seats, easy to install on stock seat pan, very comfortable, the tall foam improves ergonomics dramatically.
You can get one of their prettier covers but it costs a little more and I have been totally satisfied with the hardcore gripper model.
Go with Guts, you'll be happy!
Heres a pic of the WR with the Guts tall seat, you can probably see that it is flatter across the top and offers more cushion in the rear.

WR Tom, you have to do the stapling yourself? THey just sell you the foam then?
This is true, I re-used my stock seat cover just because I didn't want to buy a new one. It is not that hard, you staple the ends first, pulling them tight across the end of the seat pan. Then start in the center of the seat and pull tight across the pan. Should come out wrinkle free, and you can use a standard staple gun if you don't have an upholstry one. Hope this helps,
