There must be something wrong with me. I'm on my 4th Radian (first Diono) and I *still* don't like it - well, other than the cover (Cobalt).:eek: DS2 doesn't like it, either. Must run in the bloodline.

I'm hoping I'll like it. DH won't be happy if it gets here and I don't want it anymore, lol. I am pretty good about dealing with a seats quirks and adapting, so hopefully it won't be anything too bothersome. *fingerscrossed*

Congrats and welcome to the Radian Club! I got one (an XT) from Swap back in October when ds outgrew the MA rf, and we get along famously. I just won't let dh touch it...

Okay, it's here. And way more hardcore than I thought it would be, lol. Anyone have the link to the video that helps people figure it out?

ETA: Can I tuck the red strap behind the cover?

Lenae, late to the party, but we had a 1996 Grand Cherokee and the Radian installs absolutely BEAUTIFULLY in it RF. Seats all the way back and everything. This was back in the day, when they first came out, so the old base and no angle adjuster.

Thanks. I'm hoping I can brace it on the passenger seat to help it stay upright. Which is a moot point, since our Jeep is still on the barge it shipped in, and we're probably not going to get it until tomorrow. FRUSTRATING.

Yes, tuck in the red strap. :)

Do you have a smart phone? You can scan the QR codes in each section of the manual to get a corresponding video. I don't know how/where to find them without my phone.

It stays upright on it's own. Super squishy seats! I :love: that car.

Bumping to say, we got our Jeep off the barge today. Got the RN in, it was SUPER easy. I braced it on the passenger seat and make it a bit more upright, but really, it was only a bit more reclined than I would have liked. Anna was right about the seats being super squishy. I haven't needed to go anywhere tonight, but I'm bugging DH to take me out for pizza, so hopefully we'll get to try DD out in it soon.
