I have 2 diono raineers that I will need to install in my 2008 dodge caravan. We will have captains chairs. I would like to rear face tether. I have 1 son who is 4 months old and 15 lbs and RF. My older son is 31 lbs & 2 1/2 years old and RF. Are there any tips/tricks for the install? And where would I tether the seat to? TIA!

It's good that your littlest is already four months old. Hopefully he has some head control because due to the sloped seats the seats will install more upright rear-facing than would be appropriate for a newborn.

You could use the angle adjuster for your older child to be even more upright, if you want. It installs pretty well either way (with or without AA) and using either the seatbelt or the latch. I prefer the seatbelt actually. I didn't find any "tricks" to be necessary.

Dodge has apparently stated that they do not approve of RF tethering and that there is no "approved" location to do so. I would leave them untethered.
Before I knew this, I did RF tether our radian but have since stopped doing so.

Thank you so very much! I have the boots on both car seats. I think that's what they're called. It gives them more of an angle. :) & I also have an angle adjuster as well.
