Default 2012 adjustable headrests

Doe's anyone know of any aftermarket headrests that don't lean forward so much? They bothered me before but now I have had neck surgery and driving this truck is not as fun as it was.

Allot of guys are putting them in a vice and bending the posts. I bought a set of Aftermarket lcd's off eBay and they sit up straight. What a world of difference.

Mine are going in the vice soon as well. I'm 6'2" and they are absolutely terrible... Whatever engineer designed these really needs to be forced to drive 1000 miles with them, and if he/she is too short, then sit in a booster seat so they get the full effect of having them push your head forward...

Anyone have any tips on bending them appropriately in a vise?

Place the "posts" from the headrest into a vice, clamp it down (maybe use a rag to avoid scratches) and then bend the headrest to the desired angle.

Should be pretty straight forward...

Default headrest

I flip flopped the front and rear headrest. So now my kids complain when they sit in the backseat. The headrest are a joke and Im only 5ft 7
