Re: child's seats in blazer?

I don’t know how to do a link to an old post but if you do a forum search for “priceless carseat” I posted how I did mine a while back. Worked pretty good. My son is now 6’ tall and it was easy to do a modification to the roll bar to take it out when he grew up. Let me know if you can’t find it.

Interesting route to take. I just wasnt going to take chances with 1: legality and 2: rigging something up that left doubt in my mind...Im not sure I would trust ratchet straps during a car wreck with the safety of my child.

That’s a $180 britax car seat and two 1000lb ratchet straps. May not be perfect but it’s a helluva lot better than either not having him ride with me until he was older or riding with a lap belt and booster seat in the front. Used it for a handful of local trips. He’s 16 now and wants to drive it lol.
