I just tried this on wifes 20 Lariat crew cab and there is just foam and no hinges or spring , I guess they ran out of the tilt parts.

November build.
Just a thought: A couple guys posted that they removed theirs and put them in storage. Maybe they will sell them or trade for yours?

After seeing this thread marched out to my scab truck with my small socket set and got to it. Pulled them both off and brought them indoors to take a closer look! Yup, mine will tilt and just need the pegs put in them so I can do that. My build date is Nov last year so they were still using tilt ones then. Amazing how much more visibly without them though. Might just leave them off for now as my kids are all grown humans. They wouldn’t crawl back there even if I begged! 🤣 The dog though, how soon till we GO!!! 😜

I never even noticed the rear headrests while driving :crazy:

Can't believe there's 7 pages for removing a headrest.

You should also hand in your man card for asking a dealer remove your headrest.
Thanks for taking time to post this. It adds so much value to this conversation.

Hopefully this will be the LAST entry to this thread b/c I'm in my home office supposedly 'working' and always get distracted with the mostly useful/interesting threads here...this forum is a hoot.

Started tilting mine from day one, I dont usually have passengers in the rear and it does make a difference for better field of view. My 14 year old daughter was back there once fretting b/c she could not figure out how to tilt back up..now she's a smart kid, maybe too [book] smart; 4.0 student..her older brother at 17 who is a 3.25 student said 'hey dummy push the button!' without thinking twice..we all had a good chuckle. Sibling love!

Like an old USAF instructor told me once, 'its all new until you get it in your head' its easy to criticize others but we all gotta learn at some point. As long as it does not take you 88 times to get it.
How you train lesser folks says a lot about your character. I tell myself that a lot when I deal with genetically stupid people. If I did not stop letting idiots get under my skin I would have stroked out 20 years ago.
'Some folk jus be dum'...

I am sure there is an enterprising person that can take advantage of this idea and incorporate a method for tilting headrests at same time?? AutoTilt :crazy:

I’ll admit it, I searched online for buttons with the trim. Found the trim for $40 for 2 🥴 Might just go with tarp rivets and call it a day. Turn the pegs so they can’t pop out and drive into the sunset with full view out the rear glass!

I never posted the pictures here of the mod I ended up doing. Used black tarp rivets, turned some delrin plugs and here’s the end result. Interesting that during disassembly on the back of the headrest two metal plates with protruding legs are double taped on. The only thing I could surmise their use for is in an accident a whiplash head would contact the headrest that would then breakout the rear window. So... eliminated those as well. Came out pretty nice
