    Swap A 4Runner Benchseat?

    Can this be done safely?

    We have a '95 4Runner with a pleather back bench seat. It is so hard to install seats on the squishy pleatherness.

    We have been offered other bench seats from friends with 4Runners and there is a few cloth benches of the same year in the scrap yards nearby.

    One bench offered had LATCH included (supposedly - DH was offered this bench by a friend with no children.) I thought all vehicles had LATCH attached from the frame, not the bench, except for minivan benches. Is it possible we could get a bench with LATCH?

    We can do the research for compatibility, DH is a mechanic and has a Toyota forum (similar to this carseat forum) to find that out from. I just want to know if it would be considered safe or not from a Tech's view.
