    Options for harnessed booster on shallow truck bench seat


    My cousin's child just turned 3 at the end of December. They have him riding in a backless booster. I want to buy them a safer seat for him.

    He is 40lbs, a chunky boy, not sure of height, average to talls for his age.

    Vehicle is a 2002 Dodge Dakota 2 door standard cab.

    They said the reason they have him in the booster is because they had a hard time fitting a car seat on the shallow bench seat and small space in the back.

    I would like to spend $150 or less and have the seat last him as long as possible harnessed and then as a booster considering he will probably outgrow the height/weight maximums quicker than average.

    They live on the other side of the state so Im going to order a seat and have it sent to them, we wont be able to test out different ones to see if they fit.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi and welcome! I would look at the Evenflo SecureKid DLX, the Graco Nautilus 65, the Graco Tranzitions, and the Harmony Defender.
