Car Seat Installation

So I got a car seat for my nephew. Is it possible to install this in my truck? Its a booster seat that still has the 5 point harness but also converts to seat belt usage. It got rated very well.

So any help would be appreciated...

My search revealed the answer lol but I still want to make sure a seat for a 3 year old can go in the front.

I'm the only one to answer..hahaha.
No, at least not in Tennessee. A child under 13 yrs. old cannot sit in the front seat, unless the vehicle has no back seat at all. If that is the case, then yes, it is legal for a child to sit in the front seat.
You should check your laws in your state, because every state is different. Here in TN, a kid has to be in a booster until they are 9 yrs. old!

I have a lot of experience in the kids car seats department. I have to move 3 of them from truck to suv every week. I'm glad two are just boosters now!!
Did you sell your F250?

Nooooo way!!! I have had the f150 since 2003, its all lifted and junk. The f250 is my preference for everything, I dont like driving the f150 anymore but babysitting requires me to unless there is a safe way to put a seat in the extended cab...

O, ok. I get it. lol
Anyway, don't you have normal seat belts in the back of the extended cab. Car seats are fine in the back seat of an extended cab. It's the single cab that causes and issue.

I believe it is. Before I bought my truck, I test drove an extended cab. The seat seemed large enough to me for a car seat. I know guys that put car seats back there...have you tried it?

I have not and my brother was no help in suggesting anything, usually he is so anal about safety being a paid firefighter....

Over the summer we put it back there to drive on the beach in north carolina and he said it was ok just for that but not everyday stuff.
