New '15 Wranger - "X" Have a question...

I have a question that might have been answered here a million times, but I need help. It's those rear seat headrests, that are blocking my views. Also, I cannot lower the rear seats flat because those rear seat headrests hit the front seats. So, how do I remove the dang headrests from the rear seat? I've tried; there is no button to pull them out and they won't lift out. I'm a single hot guy and no one will be in those back seats so I want to lower them permanently. Thx.

My rear seat headrests fold automatically up when I lower them.

If it's like the previous years press these in and pull up on the headrest at the same time.

I'm not sure the rear headrests remove, but they do fold back... make sure the seat release lever is pulled firmly as you fold the seat down... as said, they should "automagically" fold back at that point.

On an unlimited yes, not on the 2 door real Wrangler . As one poster above stated just push in on the button and pull up, they will come out!

Thanks for the responses. Mine is a 2dr. I've tried and searched all around the base of those headrests, and there is no button to push in that lifts out the headrests. And when I fold down the seat, the headreasts do no collapse. I am getting ready to take a hack saw to them......

Don't do it. Unless you have a one of a kind Jeep there is a sliding button on the base (attached to the seat) that when pushed in will allow you to remove the headrest. It does take a little for effort to remove it after it gets up to it max height. Both buttons are located on the left post base as you look at them from the rear gate.

Good to see you're modest too.

The headrests are removable in the 2-door but they're tight and the buttons (for lack of a better term) are pretty much flush so they're really difficult to find. I struggled with mine for several minutes each but got them out eventually.

Did you ever consider just removing the rear seat?
Once you figure out that no actual human can access it, it quickly loses its appeal.

The 2 door is a 2 seater. No real full size human can use the back seat and remain sane.

I had the same problem...but if you move the front seats forward as much as possible, the headrests can clear the front seats and you can fold the rear seat down and out of the way without removing or cutting anything

At least on my 2014..

Being only 5'2" the removal of the headrests was a must when I had both of my JKs. We would remove them and keep under back deck in case we had a passenger in the back and had to put them back on. Alto getting in is difficult I have ridden in that back seat from ks to fl before.

There is indeed a little button at the bottom of the headrest post just like the picture JayKay12 posted. Though tossing a 35" on there pretty much eliminates your view anyways. I got a license plate mount for the spare and put in a back up camera.
