We're stuck using a borrowed pickup for the next week. I don't plan on going anywhere with the baby for this week but if we need to, what is the best way to have the carseat? It has one flippy down seat in the back passenger side and it looks like we might be able to face the seat to the rear of the truck or to the side facing in. The airbag can also be disabled. What is the safest option here?

I'm sure a tech will be along to give a more educated answer, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> but I think the car seat goes in the front seat with the airbag turned off.

You cannot put a car seat in a jump seat (seats facing sideways). Your safest option is to disable the airbag and put the child up front, rear facing.

PP are right a carseat can not go on the jump seat - both the carseat and the trucks manual should say that.<br><br>
I drove a full size pick up, with a bench seat, until a month ago and we installed the bucket seat rear facing, in the middle. If you have bucket seats, the car seat would go rearfacing in the passenger seat with the airbag off.
