Renting a JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE 2WD, which seats to take?


New member
We are moving to CA and when we get their we are renting a car to drive from Sacramento to our new home. We rented a JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE 2WD or similar and have a Nautilus, TruFit, Radian 80 and Marathon. I would love to be able to rear face both DD2 and DS but DD2 can go FF if that is the only way I can get the seats in. Does anyone know which seats would fit best in the back? We are renting a van to get to the airport and only DS and DD2 will use their car seats on the plane. The other will be gate checked. Thanks!

This is mostly a BUMP, since I'm not very familiar with the Cherokee.

The Radian is in, of course, and I think you might have the best luck putting it FF in the middle of two RF seats, whichever ones fit best beside it (and as long as middle child can still breathe!) Will you have plenty of time to play around and get good installs before you leave?

I hope others more familiar with the vehicle will chime in!
