back on topic, in kansas you are allowed to ride in truck beds as long as you are not on a highway, state or US.
rear seat belts are not a law yet, but you cannot drive in the left lane of a highway for extended amounts of time now,

|JDsDream||The insurance company lobbyists pushed for the repeal of the helmet laws. Think about it. If your in an accident on your bike, the helmet may save you, costing the insurance company $100,000s in medical payments. If you are killed which is more likely if not wearing a helmet. One time life payout and their done|

|Mike Phifer||The really weird thing about it all is that while PA got stricter about seatbelts, they completely reversed the helmet law for motorcycles. So the state wants to make sure that you have a seatbelt on, but if you want to ride your bike without a helmet that's your call. Doesn't make any sense if the motivation is safety; doesn't make sense if the motivation is revenue from tickets. I guess it only makes sense if you are a legislator. Good thing it makes sense to them.|

They must be getting pretty damn strict back east now.
I used to live in upstate as well.
We always had people in the back of our pick-ups and NEVER had a problem with the Cops.

|Mike Phifer||Unless I am mistaken it is also against the law to ride in the bed of a pickup in PA. I can't see any problem with turning the rear seat around in a Jeep though. Not terribly sure about the seatbelt requirement, but I've never heard of anyone getting pulled over anywhere in any vehicle for unbuckled rear passengers.|

Hey thanks for the input everyone
anyone have any other fun jeep ideas or mods maybefor tailgating and things like camping
|07-10-2009 11:35 AM|
I personally don't see any problem with it.
In most states, there isn't a backseat seatbelt requirement, unless they are children under a certain age or size.
Also look at it this way:
Lots of people have trucks.
People are allowed to ride in the bed of the trucks without penalty.
Most of the time, they are facing the rear.
And as stated above, look at the Subaru Brat.
I say, don't sweat it.

Maybe you can find some Brat seats. I remember those truck/cars. Seen a couple lifted, looks sharp. A guy who worked for my dad had one and when you pushed a button on the console it rose 2 inches. All wheel drive.
|07-10-2009 11:13 AM|
we i was based in Africa (back in 89...)
we had an old toyota landcruiser 3 speed, the rear seat were actually 2 bench side way. it was cool. you could lift up the seat against thd back rest to have more cargo room. that truck could go everywhere.
|07-10-2009 10:26 AM|
The Baja is the "new brat" They made for only 3-4 years. It was actually between an 05 Baja Turbo or my TJ that i picked up. Needless to say, I think i made the right choice!

|lilmatty5dimes||There is also a mini van that the seats would turn 360 degrees. We had a pontiac station wagon that had a rear seat. The coolest thing ever when you're a kid. It's true everyone fought for that seat.|

The seat belts are the only thing that need to be addressed.
And, yes there was a subaru and few other of the early car/truck crossovers that did that in the 80s.
|07-09-2009 10:04 PM|
wow i didn't know you could do that..keeping that in mind for when i go to the drive in next
and yes, the volvo wagon definitely had seats like that
