Question How to make GC 7 seats ?

Anyone has experience whether there is a package of two extra seats that can be installed in the third row to turn GC Laredo 2011 from 5 seats to 7 ?
Thanks

Doubt it. A Durango is a better choice for seating 7.

Anything can be done with a welder

Re: How to make GC 7 seats ?

A welder is not a the possibility i was looking for, something more like a OEM aftermarket sophisticated kit that will be folding down (Even manually), will look like the rest of my interior line and most important will pass the regulations approval for the insurance of 7 persons
THANKS!

Re: How to make GC 7 seats ?

the grand wagoneer is supposed to be released soon (2014) and its supposed to have 3 rows of seating, its gonna be built on the durango platform which is off the grand cherokee platform. its kind of the commander's successor but is supposed to be more functional and much more upscale. i read in a few places its gonna be priced near the overland...
heres a little info on it, do a quick google search for more:

As for what you're referring to, it doesn't exist for the Grand Cherokee.

There is something like what you are describing. I have seen pics of them but I can't remember the name of the site. This thing looked OEM, however it did not look safe for rear impact...

Re: How to make GC 7 seats ?

Howdy! I don't see how this could be possible. Go out to your WK2, open the rear hatch, get in, with your legs crossed, and shut the hatch. I wish you good luck.. I, personally, do not even begin to fit. I end up all folded over and it isn't pretty. I am 6'1" but I can't imagine this working out for anyone, really.

Re: How to make GC 7 seats ?

I'm not sure I would want to put seats in a spot designed to be a crumple zone in a wreck
