Retro-fitting 3rd row seats

Inevitably someone has appeared on the scene advertising fitting 3rd row seats to the Territory (as well as Falcon wagons which appear to be his existing line of business). He is advertising in Sydney's Child with only a phone number to contact for a brochure etc - 1800 631 144. I mention this because I recall somebody on this forum had a 5 seater and wanted to know if he could change his mind and retrofit.

This wouldn't be as good as the real McCoy because the factory 3rd row includes suspension mods etc. There may be an issue of what it would do to the warranty so its probably worth checking with Ford if anyone wants to go down that path. Glad we bought ours with the 3rd row!

Re: Retro-fitting 3rd row seats

Have you, or has anyone tried to take the third row seats out?

Re: Retro-fitting 3rd row seats

Now that's a question from left field. No I haven't - but why would you want to?

If your going somewhere and your not going to need the seats, and want to
utilise the extra storage areas.

In addition to the suspension changes, the 3rd row also requires 2nd row seat slide function to make footspace for the 3rd row. 2nd row also then gets adjustable seatbelt height etc etc. It's no simple add.

I hadn't realised the 5-seaters missed out on this feature.

If you get the 2nd Row Seat - Fore/Aft slide adjust option, would'nt it include the adjustable seat belt height?

Can't see why not if the 7 seater gets it.

Yes, believe 2nd row slide option includes adjustable 2nd row belt height.

Re: Retro-fitting 3rd row seats

Even thought I dont have the 3rd row, I looked at the 2nd row slide option for load area flexibility.
But I wa told that with the slide option, when it is right back, it is still further forward than the fixed seat - by about 4-5cm - thus reducing 2nd row leg room.
That wis the deciding factor, and I didnt get it fitted.
