Its giving you the retention/ safety factor of a 5 point harness but with the flexibility of a standard 3 point. If youve ever been strapped into a 5 point you will understand. There is literally no moving or reaching to turn the radio dial or flip switches etc. Thats why on all the race cars you see, most of the switches are on a console well within arms reach.

It also has an on/off to unlock and function like a normal seat belt. I've never used them in a Jeep but I have in a tube frame buggy and they do work as advertised.

Anyone is e any pics of something like these installed with a bench seat? Don't mean to thread jack but this thread has caused me to reasearch the idea for the past few hrs. These are a great idea for my kids with the rear jku seat. I also like the idea for the front seats as well.

Yeah I found some cheapies for $50 but I like the way the Corbeau 2" straps look. I'm thinking bolt the upper to the floor behind the rear seat and they would be able to be unbuckled so that you can still fold down the seats.

I don't know if I'd install them that way. Stock Jeep attachment point for the chest strap is above your sholder. Anything running a 4 or 5 point harness has a bar running behind the seats for chest harness attachment. I'd have to look it up, there are web pages about why it's not proper to attach the chest strap to the floor.

I'll have to do that. I seen a cheaper version that recommended that location. I would like to avoid adding a cross bar. I wonder if I can figure out a bolt in option. Anyone know of a website that would sell bolt together fittings? Something like a T connection to joint 2 pieces of 1.5" or 2" together? Thinking for a 4 door.
