    Old style seats are better.

    Also, sometime between 08 and 09, our trucks got the new "anti-whiplash" stupid-regulation-compliance headrests that point forward, hard ('07 still has humane normal headrests)

    The new regulation seems to require the headrest to be the first & ONLY thing you touch if you're slouched forward and get abruptly thrown back into the seat.... "safety" at the expense of reason & sanity

    Now, unless you're equipped with an explosive-triggered forward-deploying headrest (some luxury brands have em), ALL newer cars have headrests that will NOT let you lean back against the seat, *ever*... not unless you vandalize the mounts or install em backwards

    Chiropractors the world over must celebrate the day that crap got enacted

    I would really love to swap out my '01 EB front bucket seats (1st Gen) for the tan two-tone '03 (2nd gen) seats...is this possible?
