    Three across in Bronco?

    My boyfriend and I will be watching a friend's kids for a weekend and need to fit seats in his car. He has a (not sure what year) Bronco.

    The kids are 8 months (Keyfit), 2 (Complete air) and 4 (nautilus). I'm not sure of the weights/heights of the kids, but the 2 year old is RF and the 4 year old is newly FF.

    Is there any chance this will work in this car? I don't have access to the seats until next week, because they family is kind of far away and won't be here till then.

    I have access to a scerena if that would help?

    Re: Three across in Bronco?

    Is it a full-size Bronco or the mini one (I think it is called Bronco II)?

    If it is the full-size one you shouldn't have any problem. That thing is a beast. I am pretty sure the Nautilus, Complete Air, and Keyfit will fit, but if not definitely the Complete Air FF for the 4 year old, the Scenera RF for the 2 year old and the Keyfit for the baby (provided they all are within the height/weight limits for the seats).

    I know they're all within the weights. Mom is a bit of a carseat nut. (go her!)

    I'm not sure which it is, but it seems an absolute beast to me, so I'm gonna go with full size.

    Do you know if there's a specific order they should go in? even if they'd fit either way, is there a benefit per child?

    I think any order would work, but you might have to play around. I would start by putting the Keyfit in the middle because it would be easier to pop the baby into it and then into the base in the middle. And then it would also be easier to buckle the 2 biggers outboard. Depending on who between the driver or the passenger is taller, I would put the Complete Air RF behind the shorter one.
