    as you all know i am new to the burb scene. just broke into it 3 months ago. when i bought mine it had no 3rd row seat. now i am wanting one and need to know how it goes in. i have 4 squarish holes in the rubber mat i am assuming was for the 3rd row seat. and i have heard the seat goes into some sort of track? please help me out. it looks like there are 4 drilled holes maybe? in each hole cut in the rubber floor mat. i have never seen a 3rd row seat and how they are mounted. can someone post up some pics? i would be eternally greatful!! :waytogo:

    thanks,
    chris

    When you get your seat it's simple. You just tilt it into the front floor mount hooks, and pivot the back of the seat down and into the rear holders. Close the rear keepers on the seat and it clamps in place.

    Don't forget to pull up the seatbelts before locking in the seat, or you'll have to start over.

    oh so the "drilled" holes i mentioned above are actually what holds the seat in?

    also since i am on a roll with learning, does the 3rd row seat face forward or rearward?

    the seat faces forward. you said you have holes drilled in the floor, are the cups there that the seat attachments fit into. just checking.

    its hard to see in this pic[​IMG] (AgDieseler) but at the back of the frame you can sort of see it. they are sunk in to the floor and provide the anchor for the seat. someone with a digi cam could do better.

    dood! i may have been freaking out in my mind for an error in depth perception in the pic. the silver oval shaped thing appeared at first to be almost at the very end (near tailgate) of the truck. now i see it is in fact not.... those rings have one screw that holds them to the burb's floor? if so i may be just missing them and that is what the 4 holes are for...
