    Picked up two seats from the JY for $80. They are out of a Mitsubishi Eclipse. The slider are almost completely straight so they should bolt right to the floor where the Bench seat used to be. I am going to put some eyelets in the body in the rear and ractchet strap the kids car seats in there.....should be just as good if not more secure than the factory seatbelts would hold them in.

    Why not, it's a trail ride rig only. I am not going to have 60 MPH collisions or anything. A ratchet strap will hold there seat in better than the stock seat belts could.

    I am going to bolt some heavy duty eye lits to the floor next to the seats that will also be bolted to the floor. Then run a ratchet strap from one eyelit to the other through the back of the car seat. I really don't see a problem with this???

    What would be any different than a lab belt going through the car seat???:dunno:
