Altering seating capacity

Can the Army defenders be altered to seat 7-9? Does the alteration comply with DMV/Insurance requirements? I'm referring to the vehicles that have seating capacity described on the vin plate as 3 etc. Thanks.

What type of seating are you trying to do? Long rows of bench seating over the wheel arches or two forward facing bench seats or those fancy forward facing 1 man seats that fold up and rotate to the side?

On a three door you can fit 8 in the back uncomfortably sitting sideways, so 11 total. Whether is meets local regulation would depends on your local rules.

Assuming converting a 3 door St to a 5 door SW with forward facing for 5 and side facing for 4. If the vinplate says seating capacity is 3 can the additions be legally done in the USA?
