Rear seating options in 110

Hi all.

Buying ex MoD 110 and need to put a seat in the back for my daughter. She's two.

Pretty well decided upon building a box behind bulkhead and mounting the seat on it facing rearward.

Not too sure how she's gonna like that.

Just wondering what other folks have had success with.

Thanks.

Why not remove the bulkhead, install the bar support as in NAS D90's and bolt down a D90 type bench seat (or Disco) - FACING FORWARD. I seriously doubt a child will enjoy facing backwards. Plus it will be much less convenient attending to her.

I run two inward facing benches. They are not great for adults but kids don't seem to mind. The single inward facing seats would be better. There is also a company in the UK making flip up forward facing seats.

'not a good ieda for a 2-yr. old, IMHO. Child car seats are not designed for use on inward-facing seats.

Good point, I've never had a kids seat in my truck but I'm guessing you could mount a kids seat facing forward on the side using some bolted on framing.

don't know much about kid seats; however, if you don't want to add seats you could mount some lashing points and strap the child seat to that. God forbid you were in an accident I can't imagine the seat going anywhere, plus this way you could mount it in the center of the cab and your child would be best protected from a side impact. I see child seats mounted next to doors and can't imaging that being good in the instance of a side impact... just a thought
