Re: Need seatbelt measurements for YJ/TJ
Good timing to bring this up.
AS we all know, CJ's have only the single lapbelt per person. I have two boys and I want a bit more than that for them. I'm thinking of making a special mounting bracket that will allow me to attach a couple of bucket seats with 5 point harnesses. I wouldn't need a child safety seat as long as the harness fit correctly.
In case anyone is wondering...the primary purpose of the child safety/booster seat is to place the child high enough so that the stock shoulder strap is running across the child's chest...
I'm doing the research now to make sure I can install aftermarket seats that meet state vehicle code regulations. One of the issues I know of is that it's a violation to modify the seat belts in a car from the original factory design....it's mainly intended to address the issue where someone removes the 3 point and just uses a lap belt...chances are, if it's legal in CA, it will be legal anywhere else...
