    Canada 2012 Jeep Wrangler unlimited - Canada

    Hi. In your opinion, can you tell me the best convertible car seats and things to look for to properly fit my 2012 Jeep Wrangler? Also, best position to install it. My understanding is the in the back, middle and rear facing was the safest. My little guy is 6 months, 18 lbs & 27" long. Thank you so much, the options and opinions are overwhelming!

    Hi and welcome to!

    I am hoping someone more familiar with your vehicle and the options available in Canada will come along soon! In the meantime, I wanted to let you know that you are right that back, middle and rear-facing are the location and direction you are aiming for. However, it is far more important that he be rear-facing than in the middle. So if you cannot get a secure install in the middle of your vehicle seat or if your vehicle manual suggests that the center position isn't recommended, it is fine to move him outboard.

    Do you have a budget in mind? The Britax Clicktight seats might be a good option for you. They are really easy to install tightly with the seatbelt, so they are often a "go to" seat for folks who are installing in the center (which is less likely to have lower anchors). I believe they are available in Canada and they should allow him to rear-face for quite awhile.
