Getting the most out of my 2010 JK

In order to make room for vital trail supplies I installed a lockable steel box in the back of my TJ, requiring the removal of the back seat. While this was great while in school (I always had an excuse not to drive people places!), it has become somewhat of a pain now that there are a lot more people interested in going off road in my family.

In order to compensate for this we installed a third row seat from Little Passenger Seats. Very happy with the result!

Oh, and if you have a problem with the safety of these seats, PLEASE keep it to yourself. If I wanted to be safe I wouldn't be driving a Jeep, period. I know the risks, if you don't like it, DON'T RIDE IN IT

Here are the pictures, let me know if you have any questions.











And here is the new JK giving a hand to its elder, she has trouble waking up on cold mornings after a long nap!

Looks like a solid install and not any less safe than the factory seating. How are the safety belts setup? Lap or they have shoulder belts incorporated in seats?

Love the ski goggles and Pajamas!!

Looks like the factory sub does not stay? is there any way to plug it back in?

We had the option of two shoulder belts and a center lap or just two laps. The problem with the first option is that only children are able to fit with all three belts and we don't have any (yet) so we went with the two lap belts.

Pajamas are irresistible during a winter storm in a heated garage!

Good eye on the sub, we took it out and put it back in when we aren't using the seat, a process that takes under 5 minutes for the whole process. I have seen others relocate the subwoofer but it wasn't important enough to us to start messing with. Audio still sounds fine.

When we bought our 08 JKU last month it had the 3rd seat in it. At first I was skeptical and never really planned to use it, but after getting it home and looking at the install and the quality of the seat itself I'm glad I have it. I looked up the price and was a little shocked at the cost of those seats. One neat feature is you can put the seat in facing forward or backward.

Nice photos of the install, as with all production work, allowances usually have to be made between "safety" gear and what's best for the photo's
