Baby seat in a 2009 Toyata Tacoma extra cab- Dad advice

Post #1 by bubba » Wed Sep 20, 2017 7:48 pm

I need some dad advice. I inherited a 2009 Toyota Tacoma extra/access cab (its not a full 4 door truck, it has half doors and half back seats). It's a great little truck- 4cyl 5 speed. Around the same time I got this truck I found out my wife is pregnant, she's due October 19th. We did some research online and it looked like you can put a baby seat in the back seat of the truck, so I sold my old Ford and held onto the yota. We bought a Graco "snug fit" car seat. Its the kind that has a base and a seat, two pieces. Tried it out and it doesn't fit securely. Put in her car (Nissan Versa) and it fits perfect. This weekend I'm going to try mounting it in my truck without the base and using the seatbelts over the baby seat. There's hooks for the seatbelts on the top/sides. Any Dad's out there who have or have had a Yota like mine? Am I screwed do I need to get a four door truck?
Thanks in advance for any help!
