I guess I am in the total minority. I'm 6'3" and I have zero problem with the head rests. When I need relief, I just tip my head back several inches, and they're right there where I need them. I am unsure what the problem is... B-)

You probably drive with your backrest more inclined that those of us that aren't 6'3" and a bit more vertically challenged. But, when I rented the '14 for the week when I went to pit of hell known as Houston, I was able to find an acceptable incline that kept me vertical yet not feel like congress was dictating how I should ride in my vehicle by bending me over to give me the high hard one.

I'm 5'7" and the headrests annoyed me at first as well. I didn't want to remove them, due to safety reasons. I finally discovered that I could reverse them.. but that was worse. I never thought to swap them with the rear headrests.

My main complaint with any of the aforementioned configurations is that my ponytail hits every time. I have a lot of hair so this happening is not just a simple bump.. the contact with the headrest hurts over time. I'm thinking I will have to wear my hair down for the entire drive to Gatty next week, lest I arrive with one hell of a headache. LOL!

I wish I had enough hair left on my head to have that concern. My beard doesn't hit the headrest and that's really the only hair I have to worry about.

I'm also the minotity as well. I'm 6'1" and I don't know what the fuss is about. Only thing I can think of is folks are trying to lay their heads perfectly flat against the angled down part, which would be extreamly uncomfortable. As said above, I just lay my head back a tad and the headrest is right there.

I have the 14 Ram quad cab big horn, and all I can say is the front headrests suck donkey butt. I've tried turning them around, swapping them with the back, and taking them out. No good. The angle is just too much. Our Durango is front to rear adjustable, and sits straight up, no angle. I was going to take one out of the Durango to see if it would fit, but they have a security cable running through the headrest AND the chair o.O I have complained to ram customer care, and they told me I am the first complaint. I find that hard to believe, but their phone number is 1-800-763-8422. I dealt with Lydia (extension 66201) If they hear from enough people, they may correct the issue and replace them.

I had a 2010 and a 2012 Ram 1500, now I have 2010 Ram 2500 and never had a problem with headrests. I am 6'2" though but really don't recline my seat all that much.
