Seat belt HELP.

I know this may be redundant, and I did try a search on the subject. All I found was 3 point installation and lap belt location but nothing on length.

Could anyone help me on which size lap belts to order or what size the optional factory ones were?

I can order 60 or 74 overall length. The 60 has a 24" fixed end and a 36" adjustment end. The 74 has a 34" fixed and 40" adjustable.

Thank you.

Hi Bluegrain, I measured mine and I have the 74 overall length. I have a good amount of slack close to about a foot when I buckle up but I believe the 60 overall would be wayyyy too short unless you have like a 28" waist. You need to get the the 74. HTH.

This is very helpful thanks.

I'm hoping the 74 won't be too big for small passengers.

The last ones I ordered were 60" but they were for cars, which have the seat closer to the floor.

I wonder what the factory size were...

You can always get the 74's and if they have too much annoying spaghetti slack, you can have the adjusted side cut and and stitched at your local upholstery guy. Dont know if thats DOT approved but hey, they're just lap belts. My philosophy is: I have belts in my truck but I dont ware them because if I ever need them, Im going to want to be dead anyways after what I have into my baby!
