    installing a 3rd row seat

    I have a 2002 tahoe that doesn't have a 3rd seat factory installed. Is it structurally safe to install one now? The dealer says they won't do it. Does anyone know why?

    You will have to get an aftermarket product.

    Manufacturers generally do not want the liability with adding things like new seats.

    Here is one company that makes such a product:

    Here are some comments about their claims:

    Personally, I would be very reluctant to put a passenger in an aftermarket seat. I'd also be reluctant to put a passenger in any 3rd row seat that is extremely close to the rear hatch. That eliminates almost everything except extended wheelbase minivans, Suburbans, Excursions and a very few others.
