I've read all the posts on double cab v access cab and all the posts on removing head rests in 09 and newer tacos, but here's my dilemma:
I plan to buy an access cab based on my people hauling needs (or lack thereof), but will occasionally put my 6 year old daughter in the back seat. I almost bought an '05 but the moment I heard her head smack the rear window during a test drive, I was done with all models before '09. Don't need a DC, so I can't spend the extra money there. Here's my idea... It looks like the '09 AC headrests just bolt into the seat back frame. A bunch of guys have pulled these out to fit car seats, but I want to actually install one into an '05-08. That way I can have more trucks to choose from to buy, without worrying about my daughter smashing her head in an accident. Im not sure if its backwards compatible, but im assuming TMC didnt adjust their frame, just designed a headrest that would fit their existing hole patterns. What do you think?
