No pictures yet but today I got.

2 FF Radians outboard
safeseat with base center

Tricks: recline the FF Radians, install safeseat base first

2003 Kia Sedona with a 50/50 split third row

Ignore the sleeping child..he usually is rf'ing but I couldn't get the seat installed that way. The Sedona has this weird plastic thing between the seats that prevented installing the seat that way. I also tried an MA in the middle but it wouldn't work! I have not tried the MA rf'ing (the smaller foot might work ok with the plastic on the seat).


This thread has been immensely helpful! I'm adding my stats in case they will help someone else with a similar configuration.

Make/Model/Year: 2006 Toyota 4Runner
