Rear head rests

In which year/model did rear seat headrests come into being? My wife won't let me get a Wrangler unless it has rear headrests for the kids...

TIA

Ian

07 JK. For what it's worth, if you do not know this is the 97-06 TJ area. No TJ came with them.

Thanks, that's helpful. Is it possible to replace the rear seats in a TJ with seats that have headrests, perhaps out of a JK.

JK seats are wider. Aftermarket or modification is the only way.

I have another link on my other computer for a newer thread with another write up but I will not get to it for a couple weeks.

I just put in a Bestop Trail max ii for the same reason. Had to have neck protection for the kids. The install took maybe 20 minutes, wish all the mods could be that easy. The kids are loving the headrests. Happy jeepin.
