I wasn't trying to piss in anyone's Cheerio's, just stating some facts from experience. Just because you haven't heard of anyone being tossed through a windshield, doesn't mean it hasn't happened. Why else do you think the Federal Regulation changed so that front seats could not fully recline?

Mod as you will, sorry for speaking on the sake of caution.....
