    Need (emergency seat) for husbands pickup truck. Jump seat, limited space.

    Hi my 4 year old is currently riding in a britax pinnical (I am sure i spelled that wrong) seat in my vehicle. We are looking for a second seat for my husbands truck just in case of emergencies. He has an extended cab Nissan, that has jump like seats in the back, the passenger jump seat does have an anchor, but no latch. The problem seems to be that the seat back is 90 degrees no recline whatsoever. Our son is quite tall for a 4 year old, last check he was 43 inches and 45lbs, his torso is also long making his harness height an issue in some seats (this is why we had to get rid of his clek foonf). Is there a 5 point harness seat with a straight back, or a high back booster with one. I don't love the idea of a booster, but as this is an emergency seat only it might be my only option. I also don't want to spend an arm and a leg if at all possible. His safety is my main priority for sure, but affordable option is preferred.
    Thanks for the help.

    Hi there!

    Under $200, the Britax Pioneer has the same harness height as your Pinnacle. The Chicco MyFit is an inch shorter.

    I'd expect to put it in the front seat with the seatbelt and top tether.

    You could also see about a Ride Safer Travel Vest. That may work in the backseat.

    An Evenflo Sureride would be another good harness option for about $100.
