Head rest support?

Hi.
My '97 Box has the factory seats and the way my body is built, my head falls short of the back-head rest. I need to install some sort of an extra support that makes the backrest protrude forward about 2". I looked online for headrest supports, but curious about your experience here.

Had anyone found a need for this and found a good source of headrest?

The top part of the seat is a head restraint rather than a place to rest your head. It's purpose is to stop your head snapping back and to reduce whiplash injury in a crash.

Sure. You can call it whatever you want. I'm just looking for suggestions on a head rest support. That's all.

Adjust the seat back forward. You can't just add something to the head rest. It isn't there to support your head for comfort.
