I nearly ran over two joggers the other day while backing out of my driveway and I had looked both ways at the time and saw no one. Well, I am sure the headrest on the passenger side of the front seat blocked my view thru the rear passenger side window of my King Cab XE so I was unable to see them running in the street at that time. I have since pulled off the headrest to allow for better views to the right/rear of my truck. It makes a big difference in visibility in that direction. Anyone else have any near misses or "hits" due to the headrest blocking your views? Just curious.

Yeah, sometimes I just fold down the passenger seat to its flat position. If I know I won't have many passengers in the near future, I'll take off the rear seat head rests as well.

I haven't had any issues with seeing around the headrest, only issue I have is that I wasn't used to driving such a long vehicle since my last car was an '06 Miata.

On a side the government requires headrests on all cars and light trucks to prevent whiplash in the event of an accident. If you removed yours and are carrying a passenger you are probably opening yourself up for a lawsuit.

Yeah, Its probably best to just fold down the front passenger seat when its empty rather than remove the headrest. Thanks.

You could also put those little convex mirrors on your side mirrors to allow you to see better. I haven't done this yet but I think I'll put them on the next time I go to the store.
