Question Ford Freestyle and Frontier CT


Has anyone installed a Frontier in the center of the middle row bench seat in a Freestyle or Taurus X? We've just turned our almost-4 yr old daughter FF, so I'd like her in the middle. We also have a newly adopted son (5 months, enormous - wearing 12 month clothing, don't have his stats) who is just freaking out in his RF Advocate CS in the back of our current car (Nissan Versa hatchback). I think he screams because he can't see us at all). So we're shopping a used Freestyle (for size, safety profile and price). Ideally, what we'd like is her in the middle of the 2nd row, with him directly next to her (I'm guessing the Advocate CS won't puzzle with the Frontier, so he can go into her Diplomat for the year until it expires), leaving an open seat in that row for an adult. That way she's safer, he can see her at all times, and on trips where he's freaking out nonstop, and adult can sit in that row.

Too much? Or is it do-able?

Thanks for your thoughts.

I had one there in my 2007 Freestyle. I could only make it work with long belt path, but it was perfect. If you offset it a little to the driver's side it will stay tight and you'll have plenty of room on the 40 split for the other seat.
