    It's driving me nuts...

    ever since they announced the XT can RF to 40#. The angle in my van. I know it isn't suppose to work in my van. It shouldn't fit, but I would swear this is less than 45*. So the square is level. The lower line is 45*, right? The upper line follows the seat back. The paper and weird angle is doing the paper fold trick. Is my math wrong or can I do this with the seat belt??? (can't do this angle with LATCH.)


    And no it does not put the driver in the dash. The seat is where I normally drive it at I just have it pulled forward to show it is not effecting the angle.

    So does it actually look acceptable?

    It does. Lucky you. They must have redesigned the middle seat a bit. It appears to have more of a slope in the seating area and more of a 'cut-out' in the back area than the 05.

    Yay and Thank you! I think I actually prefer this seat over the TF. That harness was starting to drive me nuts. Hopefully DD2 won't complain about switching back
