2015 Jeep Cherokee headrest is only comfortable when reversed

Head rest leans too far forward. When I reverse them they are comfortable

Awesome. Glad to hear

The only downside I can see by reversing the headrest is if in the unlucky event you get in an accident and have some sort of head or neck injury, the various insurance companies might complain about the reversed headrest and refuse to pay.

Merely reclining the seat a little bit would likely make for a more comfortable distance between the head restraint (it’s not designed to be a head rest) and the back of the OP’s head.

Also, you may want to check with a neurologist. I don’t know if reversing it could make it less effective in a crash or possibly make possible neck injuries worse.
