You guys are great!

I might just be too lazy to do the 3rd seat retrofit. I highly prefer the G, but maybe I should shift my sights to the GL.

Thanks again so much for the help.

Grady,

Fellow forum members Patrick / Regina installed 3rd row seats in their Geländewagen from a company called Little passenger seats. They stated that the seat does not fold, but it can be easily removed.

Reference: Little passenger seats

Below are photos of the 3rd row seats installed in their Geländewagen.

Respectfully,

James Van Thach

I did hear that a GWOA UK guy did it, but don't know the guys name.

boostorbust,

There is not an member that has currently installed LR jumpseats in the cargo area of the G-Wagen.

Your best option is just to purchase Mercedes-Benz OEM G-Wagen jumpseats from "FourbyFourclub" that provides all the direction on how to install them in your G-Wagen.

Vlad, the owner of "FourbyFourclub" is very helpful and I am speaking from experiance, because I currently own 2 G-Wagens (1995 G320 and BRABUS G36-photo attached) and with his help I now have G-Wagen jumpseats in both of my vehicles.

Link: Mercedes G-Class Rear Jump Seats.

==========Furhermore, if you want help to find a G-Wagens with jumpseats that are for sale.==========

I have located two as of last night for you.

First G-Wagen is a 1997 G320 AMG.

Owner: Sam

Cell: 617--835--5135

It has the 320 motor, which is a little less powerful than the 500, but
better on gas and pretty torquey in low gearing off road
It is the only one with 4 powered captains chairs and facing rear bench
seats

(with belts)
1-off amg exhaust
old school, more hard core running boards and safari lights
full set of custom cocoa mats
Original, authentic Brabus 2 piece wheels
audiophile sound system with 3 McIntosh Labs amps, dynaudio speakers,
headrest monitors etc.
It has 130k miles.

Here are photos: http://picasaweb.google.com/Sam.Fank...at=directlink#

Do those jump seats come with factory over the shoulder seat belts? From the looks of the picture they are only lap belts?

they don't come with lap belts either but they are easily added and i think the eurotruck and fourbyfourclub both sell the seat belts with them.

FOr reference sake, they aren't crash tested either... they're for "putting your boots on" in the back of the truck so you don't make a mess in the rest of the truck. THey use something very similar in some of the military trucks and they're solidly built, but they don't come with all the bells and whistles of most 3rd row seat options.

Good information guys, I think I will have to move over to the ML63 because you can buy a real 3rd row seat with shoulder belts for it.

You do realize the height and general space in the cargo area of an ML is much smaller than the G. If you want lots of 3rd row area, why not just get a GL550?
