    Got tethers in my '98 Dodge Ram 2500

    So far, I hate them! They are the kind that you have to thread the tether behind the seat (no, the seat back does not move) and all the way down to the floor. yeah right. Oh, and it states in the directions that it will take two people.

    So, here I am, really over zealous about tethering the Regent for today, buy myself.

    Any hints as to how to do this in an easier fashion, please let me know!

    I am thinking of making a long stiff wire thingy with a loop at the end, to feed the tether through.

    Re: Got tethers in my '98 Dodge Ram 2500

    i have a 99 ram 1500. i still havent gotten tethers in and i'm not looking forward to it b/c i'm convinced that when i do, if i have to move one seat i think i'll have to uninstall them all so that i can flip the seat up to get the tethers through (did that make sense?)

    how much did it cost you to get them in?

    Yes. I uninstalled two regents and a frontier. I should have cleaned under the seat though. They pulled everything out. What a mess! Can you believe, a potatoe masher?

    Could you use a wire hanger?

    I figured I would start with that, yes. DH just got home Tuesday night and we went jet skiing all day Wednesday, so hopefully today, we will get that done.
