Gonna try to post pictures & instructions from the Workshop Manual for you guys. I've got a SuperCrew, so I can't eyeball these components myself.

It appears that the head restraints are bolted to the rear sheet metal along with the Child Restraint Tethers. So you have to remove those to remove the head restraints... and then the tethers cans be bolted back on.

Looks complicated, and not that easy to understand... hope it makes more sense when actually looking at the parts in question.

Removal and Installation

WARNING: After a crash, the following safety belt components and attaching hardware must be inspected and tested to verify correct function:
  • Retractors
  • Buckles
  • Child safety seat tether bracket assemblies
  • Automatic locking retractor (ALR) feature for child safety seats (passenger seating positions only)
  • Belt tension sensor (BTS) (if equipped)
  • Front safety belt buckle support assemblies (slide bar) (if equipped)
  • Safety belt shoulder belt height adjusters (if equipped)

Components that do not operate correctly or pass all Functional Tests in the Component Tests of this section must be replaced with new components.

Safety belt assembly attaching areas must be inspected. Damaged or distorted attaching areas must be restored to their original structural integrity and a new safety belt assembly with new attaching hardware must be installed.

After deployment of the front safety belt pretensioners, a new safety belt system (including retractors, buckles and height adjusters) must be installed.

Failure to follow this instruction may result in incorrect operation of the safety belt system and increases the risk of serious personal injury or death in a crash.

WARNING: Always tighten the child safety seat tether anchor/bolt to specification. Failure to follow this instruction may result in the child's safety seat being incorrectly secured, which increases the risk of serious personal injury or death to the child in a sudden stop or crash.

1. Remove the rear seat backrest for access to the child safety seat tether anchor bolt. For additional information, refer to Section 501-10 .

When installing the backrest, make sure the child safety seat tether anchor strap is accessible and not trapped between the seat backrest and cab back panel.

I actually like the headrests for functional reasons. A few years back I was at a stop light in a single-cab truck I had and was rear ended pretty hard. By the force of the collision my head went back knocking out the rear window and as my head came back forward I caught a lot of glass in my forehead. It took 3 hours for an ER nurse to clean most of the glass out of the skin. As long as 5 years later I would still find specs of glass working out of my skin.

But I completely understand changing things up for appearance. Also, chances of being rear ended while having someone taller in the back seat is probably slim for most of us.
