    Hi All

    My 2000 Mounty has front seats with integral headrests. My girlfriend pointed out the other day that the distance between the headrest and her head is pretty far, making it uncomfortable to lean back and take a nap in the seat.

    Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket cushion we can add to the seats to make the headrest a little further forward?

    Here's a pic where you can see the top of the seats.

    Thanks!

    Maybe...will they stay put on the tapered seat backs of my car? I don't have separate headrests to wrap those around....my headrests are part of the seat backs.

    I say go to a junkyard, or find a local Craigslist part out, and get some Limited seats from an Explorer that have actual headrests :)

    Only problem is that if you do that, you get headrests, but lose all lateral support...

    Bungee the back of the strap down to the seat bottom, they won't travel...
