LJ with a baby
Hello, does anyone have any words of wisdom for a 1st time Dad with a baby on the way? I'm just getting my Jeep the way I want it and want to make it work with the baby. How Difficult is a TJ / LJ as a baby transport vehicle?

I think you'll enjoy the LJ.....
You don't want a TJ if you plan on having baby with ya....just not enough room for the extra stuff.
Also, babies love Jeeps!

you need to climb around a bit, but it's not bad. I have 2 now.

The lj will have a smoother ride for the baby as well so you don't shake the crap out of them. I guess that explains why my sister is the way she is after being driving around in a cj5 as a baby.

I can tell you a rear facing carseat in my YJ would not work in the back, the seat bottom was not deep enough, had to use the passenger seat. I see you have an LJ. I have not tried a rear facing in the LJ, but I think it would work better. The LJ has more leg room in the back, and I think a deeper seat, which would help for fitting an infant seat.

I can say that if you use a rear facing infant to pre-k as long as its a clip into base. The base portion gets put in, then you clip in. Passenger seat must be pulled forward though. Also the stroller part of the travel system would have to be put out on a rack or a roof rack. (I recommend the one that flips over to provide shade too, if you camp or out in the woods). After that diaper "jeep" bags can be bought from walmart and you could fit 2 length wise in the back or side by side in the back seat. Which leaves room from your packs.

Sounds like you are in the market for a beige minivan. Don't worry, there is life after kids.
