Well to be honest, there are pros and cons of having and not having the headrests. Pros: of not having them are the interior looks cleaner to me, you don't have two big blocks sticking up on the back haha. Also, when looking thru the rear window with them gone, the view is much better. Not having to look around the headrests is an easier task for me. Cons: are the very minimal safety feature the headrests give. But again, its minimal so I took them out.


These are my opinions so people don't start flaming me over opinions.
Appreciate all the feedback this thread is getting as well.

Haha I completely agree! People should leave this shit for the bed liner itself.

Picked up a bed Saturday for cheap. Couldn't pass up this deal at all. It is super clean, no dents, no dings. Only spot that has any damage is under the gas tank, has a few scratches. Nothing some sanding wont fix. Hell, its going to get painted anyways.

You're not too terribly far from me, it's only about a 2 hour drive to PCB for me. Are there any good shows in the panhandle now that spring fling is gone?

Nice find on the bed, I must say using a spray in bed liner uh... shows the previous owner wasn't the sharpest tool in the shed..

Spray bed liner works great in the bed and works great as a paint job for a 4x4 rig. But bein your trucks a mini truck it does look quite weird.

Well there is SlamFest in Gainesville, and also Scrapin The Coast in Mississippi in June. Im not sure of any other Major Shows near the state line. Others can chime in on that topic if need be.

Yeah, I don't know what the hell the previous owner was thinking. Looked perfect with the original black paint it had. Why he chose to destroy it is beyond me.
