Here is my 2 1/2 year old in front middle seat from utvma and six year old in back on the booster seat from utvma with the rear bench seat from utvma. Maybe this helps. She was more secure in the front seat than being in the car seat mounted to back seat. The booster seat in the back got the harness to the correct height for her.

The car seat we had for it had cup holders on either side of the child’s legs. It made the seat too wide the fit in the factory seat without it sitting on a bad angle. That, and the seats are dished out more than an actual automobile seat, so it didn’t sit in the seat in a way that I’d be confident that it would slide, regardless of how tight I made the straps.
I’m sure I could have bought a different car seat that would have fit better...but it was “spend $200 on an additional car seat -vs- put $200 towards a cool accessory”. Haha.
I figured she’d grow out of the car seat in the next year. But with the bench seat, I’ll always be able to fit 3 kids in back.
At least that’s how I’m justifying it to myself! Haha.
I’d take your seat in there and test fit it. Tell them that your child riding safe and comfortable is a deciding factory. Let them set it in there if that makes them more comfortable. I think that’s a pretty reasonable request if you’re on the fence about ready to spend that much money on a machine
No worries! The family dynamic is the exact reason we picked up a side by side, so I love the dialog.due to her size mama bear is a little extra protective of her. The last photo was taken on monday (1/11/21), and that's a "normal" sized back pack next to her lol.
But i love seeing these ideas for the family inclusion.. sorry for side tracking your build thread.. carry on
There are tie downs in the bed that I’m sure would work. That’s what I did in the Pioneer but I had to add tie down rings for it to work in the front.just had an idear! Are there any spots in the back seat where a ratchet strap could latch on to? Thinking using one of those versus a seat belt to anchor in a car seat...
Thanks!That thing is really coming together! I like the front skid and a-arm guards on there. The silver looks good on the LE model. Are you getting the rock sliders too?
I like the tires and rims on this rig. I have an X2 just like it. can you give me specs and fitment for these? I'd like some bigger tires on mine but don't know if they will fit. Also, it seems that there's not many bigger tire options for the stock 12 inch rims.Here is my 2 1/2 year old in front middle seat from utvma and six year old in back on the booster seat from utvma with the rear bench seat from utvma.
