When attempting to back the truck up, the backs of the seats are too high and it obstructs my view. One night while trying to back my truck up in my yard, my view was too obstructed and I hit a tree. The tailgate of my truck was down, and was damaged. It is un-repairable. I was backing up at about 5 mph, so the airbags didn't open. This has been a problem from the beginning. I haven't contacted the manufacturer, but if you advise me to do so, I will. The anti-lock brakes just went made a grinding noise and I had to almost push them to the floor to stop...I was going 35-40 mph and someone in front of me slammed on their brakes. Since then, the brakes scrub and make a grinding noise if I don't stop gradually. The brake pads were looked at and are okay. I'm not a mechanic, but if it's not the pads, then what is it"?" noone was injured in either incident, but I'd like to know if there have been any other complaints about the seats. I'm almost 6 feet tall and can't see over them, and barely see around them. That's dangerous!...as is the braking system.
