sorry for the multi posts.... ill just edit this one with more info i find!
"I have the TeraFlex seat brackets with a 2 door JK rear back seat in my jeep. Instead of using the kingserts it came with I used bolts (which there are 8 in each bracket.) I keep mine in the rear facing position when offroading due to the face that the passengers heads fit just inside of the roll bar. There isn't much feet room, but the kids sit crosslegged. I installed 4 point seat belts to keep them from flying forward in the event of a collision. In my own safety opinion after running the seat...I feel that if there was a roll over they would be just fine. The majority of the weight is going to be distributed in the front due to the engine and the windshield and frame are going to die! For a rollover to affect the 3rd seat you would have to somehow put a weight to the rear...going noses over end. And hopefully my rear bumper and tire carrier can aid in giving protection. In a collision you would have to get rear ended. Side to side they have the axle and body to protect them, which if you have your doors off they are going to be safer than you! And even running with your doors on...they are just element protectors, they offer no protection in collisions. With this said...This is my opinion and you have to drive safe all the time keeping in mind that you have passengers back there. And if you are doing some serious offroading and run the risk of hurting your kids back there...you should ask yourself the question...do my kids even need to be there for it? Pisses me off to watch videos of people on the internet pulling there kids out of the jeep after a rollover...really people? Get a babysitter if you are going to be putting your kids at risk like that!!! If I ever get hasseled by anyone with this I am going to shoot out that there are thousands of convertibles out there that offer less protection than what my jeep offers. By the way the kids love it! Just like we loved the rear facing seat of the station wagon! "
