headrests for the back seat
My son is getting close to outgrowing his full booster seat, and I'd like some headrest in the back. My wife also doesn't like riding back there because of the no headrest deal.
I've seen the $expensive$ Mastercraft back seat with headrest option, but what do you think of these two ideas...
1) What if I just took out the folding rear seat and added a single bucket seat? I imagine it would have to be bolted just about flat to the floor or it would be too high. Are there any mounting kits like this or would I have to fab something up?
I've thought about welding on some sort of bracket to the rear seat that could hold a stock headrest (from any old car at the junkyard), but I was concerned how to go about this since I don't weld and then how easy would it be to remove when I need to tumble the rear seat. Then it hit me...
2) What do you think of bolting in a bar across the back top of the seat to each corner of the roll cage? Like right behind the seat, but right up at the top edge. It would have headrests (or cushions) then directly mounted to it, and I could just do a quick unbolt when I needed to tumble the seat and have the full back open for gear. It would make a great place to lash against when carrying a hi-lift or whatever, and would be easy for this non-welder to make. Any safety concerns you can think of?
