Re: Isuzu Rodeo headrest to backrest mod - with pics
No apologies necessary Mark. If you look at the stock buttrest, the rods that slide back into the seat provide all the vertical support. The screws used only keep the buttrest from sliding forward out of the seat when doing adjustment and aren't really needed. If you think about it, there's not really any vertical load on the stock buttrest. The Isuzu backrest mod does put quite a bit more load on the seat rail slots. But there's a lot of people that are using the Isuzu backrest without any problems being reported so far. So I wouldn't be concerned.
