IIRC my headrests have a button you press to adjust the height, then once it's at full height and you want to remove them, there is an additional button on the opposite post and you have to press both to remove it....going from memory though so don't quote me on that...

I took mine out last night to clean the rear window. Easy to do. Then I took out the front ones and put the rear ones in the front seats. No more goofy looking, push your head forward front seat head rests. Problem solved, back window cleaned and better visability out the back window. I love this truck!

Those "goofy looking push your head forward" headrests are designed that way for your safety, not looks. You would appreciate them more if you got hit from behind and snap your neck backwards.

Everyone keeps saying they are slanted forward for safety....what's wrong with a regular headrest? It doesn't need to be angled forward...it's just for appearance.

Mine pulled right out although it took a good pull. I took them off to eliminate the blind spots, much better. They are under the rear seat in case I ever put passengers in the back seats other than the dogs. There are two fabric loop pulls at the top of the rear seat, anyone know what those are used for?

Check my age, I'm not stupid! The rear head rests stand straight up and would still check a back lash. My head is only 2" from it sitting in my seat. I'm 6'3"

From what I've been reading the headrest design is regulated so it's not just for appearance.

Why don't other cars have this steep angle then? I understand some may, but most don't.

I noticed the odd headrest angle when I first test drove the truck, but since buying it and driving it I really do not notice it much. My head does not touch it when driving, so it really is a non-issue for me. Calling it a headrest is really a misnomer as it gives the impression people use it while driving. It is more of a head restraint for protection in the event of an accident much like an airbag. If it were angled further back and your head were in contact with it your line of sight would be up at the roof.

Age has nothing to do with intelligence, but for the record, I never insinuated that you were stupid.

The tilt forward headrests have been proven to give better protection. Both of my other vehicles also have similar designs. It is a government safety thing. Why the rears are not so pronounced, I can't answer.
