Add center seat to a 7 passenger

Anyone know if it's possible to add a center seat to a van that was built as 7 passenger? Even if I can get a seatbelt for it, it would be nice to have to put a LATCH car seat into or use as a console for the existing seats.

Just use tie downs for the latch seat...


JUST KIDDING!

I have to get the 8 passenger because we "may" have another child on the way... in a few years that is. BUT as far as I know, no it is not legal to do so. Has to be installed by the OEM... lawsuits I would imagine.

Father of thing 1, thing 2, thing 3, thing 4 is getting a minivan.

I just want the 3rd seat to mount so that we can have it for the kids when we go camping. We do a lot of excursions with our van's and the two kiddos love laying out when we reach our destination. The 3rd seat would make things so much simpler for this process, but because of the current gap, we're left with having to build some sort of stump that can be used in the middle for these trips.

No, you can't. I went through this when I was ordering my Pacifica Limited, I wanted the mid seat but you can't have it and the sunroof cause of the upper tether. I thought that is dumb, but then I looked at it and the Pacifica head honcho of the project at Chrysler told me that the floor anchors are not built into the floor unless the van came with the 8th seat option. So, even it you got that 8th seat, you would need to do some welding to the floor to add the 4 seat anchors.
I go back and fourth with it as I love the sunroof, but I might have been ok with out the sunroof so I could have the 8 passenger seat option.

Unfortunately, if you want the 8th seat, you'll have to buy it that way.

All the more reason to have the seat belt attached to the seat, vice the roof.

The 8th legal jump seat from CSO Radio can be added to the OEM bolts without any drilling.

Did a google search on this and found this page.
