    Adding a headrest to center of middle & rear rows

    Hi, we own a 2011 Suburban. 6 kids ages 8, 11, 11, 13, 15, 16 (11yo are not twins). The problem is that neither center position of the middle or rear seats have headrests. Either the 2 youngest have to ride in the center with no booster or the older kids ride with their heads way above the back of the seat. Neither are options I like. I saw one thread that discussed adding a headrest, but it mostly discussed changing car seat positions. I would like to explore adding headrests to the seats so it's easier to allow anyone to sit in any position with the exception of my 16yo as he is 5'10" & the headrests in the rear row don't go up that far. Not really sure what Chevy was thinking, but this surely could be improved upon.

    Anyway, has anyone added headrests? I know the rear seat is split, but I'm thinking as long as we remove the headrest prior to folding the split bench then it shouldn't be a problem (we very rarely do this as we fill the truck with people).

    TIA!

    Have you talked to Chevy? They'd be the ones to tell you if this was possible or not.
