Rear seat mod - rear facing

Write up link below the picture. This was a fairly intense project, so if you're interested - do your research!



Thanks to mhicanders for help in making this available!

Wow! Impressive work! I like the look of that. I'm guessing passengers need to enter via the tailgate.

Wow! Lots of work there! Question though, is it totally wood, no foam? Is it comfortable?

Great idea and nice work. Good for hauling younguns and Could also see it for deer lease . Would also give good view out the back for setting at the beach, I'm always backing toward the water and tail gating with family and friends.

Really is a useful and worthwhile mod.

I don't have any pictures, but the seat belt is actually very easy to use as a lap type. Just use the carabiners I installed to catch both top and bottom of the belt and click it like normal. I may take on the challenge of moving the entire seat belt to the center post.

It has no cushion but very comfy. Wasn't intended to encourage long-voyage passengers!!
