I don't know if its larger than a dodge but I have a 1 year old and have put his car seat in the extended cab no problem. With his rear facing seat in the middle the top of it comes about 2-3 inches from the front seats. I haven't had an issue with room when trying to turn it to get it out or anything like that. We are switching to forward facing soon and that may be a little different but should be easier. Hope this helps.

I had a 2002 F250 extended cab and the booster seat for my 6 year old was fine behind driver or passenger seat. The car seat for my 3 year old was fine in the middle only. The forward facing seat would fit behind the driver or passenger but then the 3 year old's feet would not fit in the seat, so it stayed in the middle. I had the 40/20/40 front seat with the fold down console/armrest. When we had little boy #3 was when my truck was not big enough. I need a crew cab. Hope this helped.

Just visually by comparing the Ford and Dodge extended cabs it looked to me like the Ford had a bit more room, I never measured it just looked like the Ford was a bit bigger. I have had my daughter's car seat in the middle both forward and rear facing and it fit well, getting in and out when rear facing was more difficult but managable. I also have the 40/20/40 front seat so I don't know if that was a help or hindrance. If I remember right most stores, toys R us, babies r us etc. will let you use a display model car seat to put in your rig to check fit. Hope that helps.

I have a 3 year old and an 18 month old, both forward facing seats.

The trick is to remove the backrest, that gains you like 4 inches when you put the carseat in there. The kids then have plenty of room.
