    At some point the future I do want to swap the 60/40 second row bench seat for some of the better high back seats Exmoor Trim do. However they say the highback seats only fit with individual framed seats, which is fine, can occasionally get hold of the frames. However how on earth do they fit in place?

    The double cab rear seats are secured very differently to a CSW, as in there is no fold forward catch on the DC (I did look at retro fitting this but it was £500+!) and seats are secured to the rear tub via a bracket fitted to the top of the seat back but there is nothing to secure a separate middle seat. While in a CSW they have a bracket that locks them in place.

    So if I where to get hold of the 3 way split seat frames how do you actually secure them in place? As without the bracket that fits on to the top of the 60/40 bench seats they would just tilt forward.
