Look at it from this point of view: Suppose you get into an accident and your truck flips or rolls. The force of the twisting COULD cause the seat back to dislodge from its locking pin (due to the latch having less catch). In turn this could cause extra stress/twisting on the passenger in that seat. You can beat your last dollar the insurance company will scrutinize that seat to see why it became dislodged and when they, expect the *hit to hit the fan. IMHO it's one thing to put bigger tires on your truck...it's another to "play" with the original design of any part when it goes outside its original functionality.
