Shoulder belts in a \'68 Waggie?

I am considering purchasing a '68. Is it possible to add shoulder harnesses to these? This is very important to me since my wife would be driving it?

Thanks,
Dave

That shouldn't be a problem at all. You could just go to a junk Yard. Pick up any seat belt set up. And custom mount it in you 69. All you need to do is to find a good solid support behind the door to mount it too. Just take off the cover and find some big rugged metal to mount the belt on. You could re use the floor mounts.

Thanks, I was assuming that was what I would have to do. But what I really need to know is whether there really is any "good solid support" to attach the upper mount to? I put shoulder belts in my Jeepster, but I had a roll cage to attach them to. Is the "B" pillar in the Wagoneer sturdy?

Thanks,

It should be plenty strong. By design this is what keeps the roof from falling in in the event of a roll. If it can keep 4000 lbs from coming down on your head, it should hold a person with no effort.
When you do it, be sure to let us know how it turns out and what you used.

<font color="blue"> </font color> I did the same thing in my '73 J-4000. I used the belts from an '87 Grand. Worked good.
