Cool

Forgive me, but what hell is a power wagon? Sounds like something that would have wood paneling on it...

Many people put the head rest in a vice and bend them to be less forward, but this may brake the chrome on the stems, others have ordered off the web replacement head rest that will fit, do a search on the site and you will find threads that talk about this and other options.

Headrests are the same in 2010,2011&2012. As stated earlier put them into a vice & persuade them straight. The lockers can only be used in low range. The sway bar disconnect can be used in 4hi or 4low.

my '09 ram has the forward slanted front headrests too
some people take out the back ones on the '09 & move them to the front seats
they are shorter & fairly straight

i just reversed mine, like others mentioned above
