BACKSEAT MODIFICATION

Post by Rollbar » Sun Feb 24, 2013 7:13 pm

I am currently running the stock rear seat in my Bronco and am looking to upgrade. I know have three kids so need to see if anybody has a good mod to increase the seating capacity in the back. Is there a rear seat out there that seats three?
Thanks,
Thanks,
Bill

I have a Tom's flip n fold. Without armrests you gain enough room to get 3 small kids in .

In my last bronco, I had taken a stock seat and cut off the armrests, reinforced the back, and made new seat and back from plywood, foam, and vinyl covering to make it full width, much like the photo above. Not having arm rests, regardless of style, makes a big difference. My son sourced a third seat out of a 1990 dodge colt (I believe) that is a nice fit and folds/tumbles as well. It has a split back to fold one side or the other too.

I think your biggest challenge is going to be seat belts. There are only enough stock mounting points for the stock seat belts. Any more is going to require some fabrication, which, in my opinion brings safety into question.
