    Hey _ Could you send a link? Or is that the Td5 you are talking about? If so he said that came with the rear seat belts.

    Hi Jerry777.
    I have bought an RFSV as well and want to add a front centre seat. How did you go with your installation. Did you move the two seats outwards and get the imported seat to fit.
    Did you need to take out the two fuel tanks..

    Cheers Geoff

    Middle Seat Update

    Hi everyone,

    Have joined recently and following these threads. I have a Perentie and am keen on fitting the middle seat between the driver and passenger seat. Prefer 3 point seatbelt rather than lap sash.
    Appreciate any more recent advice from the forum - seat model and purchase; installation tips etc.
    Thanks

    Hi All,

    Does anyone know where I can go to get a third middle seat fitted to a Perentie in the Melbourne area.

    I have two seats in the front and bench seats in the back so how can I tell how many people the truck can legally carry.

    Thanks

    If you have a look on the compliance plate, you should see it says 2 seat.

    I have no answer for the possible next question you might ask "but it has seats in the back etc etc" So did a Unimog but it still isnt legal to carry 12 people in the back.
    Regards

    When I fitted a middle seat to my '85 County station wagon, it took it from a 9 to 10 seater, I first went to Vicroads who told me that if I could demonstrate that 10 seater was Factory standard issue, they would approve it. I fitted a seat & went back with a Sales brochure and a copy of a book on Land Rover history & they altered the Registration to 10 seats, but not the compliance plate. I later sold the vehicle no worries.
    As per previous comments on this thread, it might be best to get factory aftermarket from UK which uses existing anchor points ( are they on a Perentie??)
    otherwise you might be up for engineering certificate.
    I guess I just raised a new problem there

    Thanks Deejay, I have been doing some more research at the weekend on this and noticed that when i took the cab seats out of the Perentie it does look like there are extra holes for a middle seat and belt, still i would need to compare it to a civilian 90/ 110 to confirm this.

    I think i will be ordering a middle seat from the Exmoor trim in the UK and arrange for a VASS engineer to fit it and sign it off, plus go with a harness belt.

    My understanding is that the 6x6 cab is wider than the 4x4, specifically because of the middle seat - so that 3 adults can sit in the front. You may be able to get a middle seat but it might be tight?
