Exmoor Load Area Seats

Has anyone installed Exmoor forward facing foldout seats. It looks like a style from newer Defenders for the load area with an integrated seat belt. I found the catalog on the http://www.exmoortrim.co.uk/ website. Rovers North is a distributor, but I have not yet checked to see if the seats are sold in the US.

The 'Lock and Fold' seats have now been discontined by Exmoor Trim due to quality issues their supplier. A friend of mine who bought a set would vouch for that!

I am just looking for an alternative my jump seats. I am not a big fan of them, but the bench seats are hard to find.

The bench isn't that hard to find, and the lock and folds, when available, were $$$. Rover has a new style forward facing rear jump seat, which is nice, but entails a tub replacement to install. Exmoor sells an older style of FF jump seat, but its not the sturdiest looking thing.

seats

I installed the seats in my tub that Jim is talking about. He is right that they are not that sturdy. If I were to hall children around as a daily driver I would not consider these, but since they fold forward and then up, and I use them once in a blue moon they are fine. I actually installed them first on a forward facing basis but found that if I wanted to take the C Pillar and cantrails off, the rear passengers would have no protection in a rollover. So I faced the reaword right behind the fronts so that way, there is some protection to those passengers should the rear cage be off. I can send a pic if you PM me your address.

I need a rear forward facing seat in my SW for the kids. If exmoor is no longer an option, anyone know of a source for the genuine LR seats that are in the new ROW defenders? I know a tub mod will be required. Any thoughts? I dont want to go the bench seat route unless thats the last choice.
thanks

I'm in the same boat. Just picked up a (new to me) SW, but remember my 95 ST I owned years ago had a nice foward facing bench with the inertia belts. Seemed like a nice, safe set up; but I'm not sure if the SW offers the same rear passenger protection as the ST, since it had the beefy rear cage. Anyway, I'm also looking for a safe option, as the kids are clawing for rides (4 & 8); the kids in the jump seats don't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling...

I was also looking for a seat to put my new son in. I decided on the lock and fold for safety reasons but as mentioned Exmoor discontinued it. I went with the forward facing fold up as shown below, including seat belt and instillation bracket. I was able to tie the seatbelt into the roll cage in two places. The top bracket requires quite a bit of trimming of the side and rear interior panels to fit, so I made cover that works but could have been better. I think one could fabricate a bracket that would fit much better bit I just did not have the time. For adults I think the seat is just fine. My issues for using if for my son are:

Seat frame is made of thin material / poor welding
The Exmoor seatbelts do not have a lock function (there are ways around that)
Seat does not tie into the floor of the truck when down (see attached photo / fix)

If you have any questions or would like some more photos please let me know.

I found some interesting photos on the web today on the exmoor seats and some good info on seat belts including the mounting hardware.

Here is a link to the forward facing seat with the integrated seat belts-

Reese,
that is the exact setup i have. notice the exposed brackets in the first or second picture you posted. The last two photos are different from anything i have seen from Exmoor....
On my install i was able to bolt the belt reel directly to an existing bolt on the roll cage and the bottom anchor point into an original seat belt location from the inward facing seats (also tied to the roll bar)

I think the last two are from a new style defender and a LR part. The item labeled #3 on the drawing and shown in the last photo looks like it could simplify things. I have no idea how it would fit into a NAS D90.

Notice the gold colored hanger bracket on the first photo at the upper point for the seat belt, I think this is an exmoor part to hang the belt from.

You are correct. that is the piece that will require you to trim your side and rear panel quite a bit.

Lindy,

Do you like the seats and were they difficult to install?
