Britax Car Seat in my 2012 unlimited?

my husband and I are the new proud owner of a 2012 unlimited wrangler dozer. we just absolutely love it. the problem is that we have two kids, one 3 YO and one just about 3 months. we are not planning on taking the little one in the dozer, at least not yet. We would very much like to take the old one, but also worry about the child safety. we like Britax car seat, seems very sturdy. However with the size of the car seat I'm a bit afraid that it might not fit. we are dying to be able to take the dozer out, and since we need to drive the old one to daycare we hope that the Britax Frontier 85 SICT would fit. Anyone tried it?

I have a britax marathon (I think thats what it is) mounted backwards for my 1yo. Fits no problem. I have it on the passenger side and I can still sit in the front seat with plenty of leg room to spare (Im 6'2)
This seat seemed to be the smallest one out there. All the other ones are monstrously huge.

Our second child was the main reason that I went with a JKU in the first place (all of my previous vehicles had been either 2-seater sports cars or regular cab trucks).

I found that I had to put the rear-facing car seat on the passenger side since I felt cramped with him behind the drivers' seat. I like my seat almost all the way back & my wife bought a gigantic Graco seat which meant that I had to push my seat forward a bit for it to fit.

Now that he's in a forward-facing seat, his seat (another gigantic thing ) fits well enough behind mine & he even has a bit of leg room.

Thanks guys. I was able to put in the carseat, forward facing. I placed it in the middle figure its probably the safest spot for the kid...
We love our Dozer....

Any pics of that Britax Frontier 85 installed? We're debating it as the next step for our 3.5 year old.
