Anybody have MRT Headrests on a 2013-2014?

Just checking to see if anybody has MRT Headrests on a 2013-2014?

I am wondering if they sit any further back or are more comfortable than the factory 2013-2014 headrests?

I find my 2014 headrests to jut too far forward which forces my head forward a bit when sitting normally.

Thanks so much for your help!

Here is a pic of what I have; they jut forward a bit past the top of the seat back.

I miss the headrests on my 13' now that I have my 12'. Wouldn't mind finding a pair of 13-14 headrests and swapping out the covers. I miss the adjustability.

If I remember right you can ratchet the headrest back by pulling it forward toward the steering wheel and it will go all the way back when you release it. Then if you want to move it forward you pull it forward and it will ratchet forward.

On the way home I tested it out and I was right, pull the headrest all the way forward and when you release it it will go all the way back

Thanks, but i've adjusted them every which way. Up, down, tilt, etc. The only way to get them off the back of my head is to recline the seat back more than I would like. The result is a less than optimal seating position. I just hate having to sit in a slightly awkward position because of the silly headrest that juts too far forward.

Here's some pics of the MRT headrests. It's very hard to tell from the photos whether they jut forward from the top of the seat back any less than my headrests I first posted. It looks like it may be a little better?

That's why I created this thread; I haven't found any reviews of the MRT's from a 2013-2014 owner. I know the MRT's are a HUGE improvement over the horrible headrests on the 2010-2012 models, but want to know if they are any better on the 13-14's?

Wow, even with them adjusted all the way back, it's still too far forward? Are you wearing a helmet? And what does MRT stand for btw?
