    It's a pain lifting them up and squeezing them begind the pass seat. Other than that not a real big deal /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I haul my kids in mine all the time. I used to have 3 seats in the back, but my oldest now is old enough to not need one so I use 2 seats and 3 kids now.

    My nephew has been riding in mine since he was 8 months old and as soon as I think my daughter is string enough (probably around 6 months) she will be back there with him.
    I've never had a top on, so getting him in the back has never been a problem. A minor amount of athletesism or one helpfull person should be enough to get a kid in the back seat of a k-5 anyway...

    I've been driving this since my little guy was 1. He's 4 now. Plenty of room for 3 kids and all their gear in the backseat. My truck is lifted, so I would set them up in, then jump in the back seat and buckle them up. Not exactly convenient, but tolerable and *fun*. This picture was from a wheeling trip last month:

    i've thought about getting a kiddo seat permanently mounted in place of the console. one of the seat companies like beard of mastercraft makes a kiddo sized version of their suspension seat that i think might fit.

    Sounds like a cool idea. you could kind have a sort of prerunner third seat setup. My 2 year old rides in the back, I sit him in the front seat, then I climb up and lift him into his seat which is placed behind me. He loves the truck, sometimes I sit him in the seat when I need to work on stuff and he just sits there and makes comments and looks at what I'm doing. I think he will be a future K5 member. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    We've hauled the twins in the back since they were younger than one. Been wheelin many times and they love it. It is kinda a pain gettin them buckled in but once you get the hang of it, it ain't so bad.
