    Has anyone installed a top tether anchor in a cab over style vehicle, specifically a 2007 GMC W5500? Is it even possible?

    You would need to contact the manufacturer to discuss safety of this option. In general there are issues with installing car seats in this type of vehicle that can make them unsuitable and unsafe, so you definitely need to verify whether it is an option that can be done safely with their engineers.
