Has anyone done this? The seat part flips up, but the back appears to be fixed. Being an extra cab, just folding the seats doesn't leave much space for the Engel etc. The booklet gives no info on seats at all.

Its opposite in the dual cab, the back folds down but the seat part stays put, same thing, to get the room for the fridge have to remove back seat and make up a wooden floor that uses the seat bolts.

I have not done this yet but NiknOff has done this and apparently it works well.

Thanks for the advice Stewart. By the time i got home from work, hubby had got them out OK. He made a chip board platform for the Engel in the Patrol, so should work similarly here. We are hard pressed to find a spot for the control unit for the solar and battery and Anderson plugs though.

To get the back of the rear seat out, just grab it from the bottom and lift it up. It's held in by clips.

Thanks Paul - My husband beat me to it, and had the seats out by the time i got home from work. I think there will only just be room for the Engel and we are finding it hard to get a spot to put the controller for the battery and solar as well as Anderson plugs. We need to be able to use the seats occasionally when not camping.

Yes the seats are a problem in the F250. Compared to the Jap vehicles that seem to have all these options covered, and also have lots of little extras like handy compartments etc.
One thing that annoys, is lack of a lockable compartment.(Even our 85 Bronco's centre compartment is lockable) Ok, if someone broke into a locked vehicle - a locked compartment wouldn't be much of a problem, but it would be a deterent for an "oppotunist" passing an unlocked vehicle.
The finish of the roof lining at the back window leaves a lot to be desired also.
And how about the "mingy" factory supplied single side step on the 4 door model !

However, as David keeps telling me, it's designed as a "Workhorse Truck" and I can't argue with that - and it does provide a comfortable ride, it's roomy and great to drive. I love it really.

Cheers, Denice

Hi Denice

Really for a 'truck' it has a reasonable finish. We will investigate putting in a glove box, as i think some people have done this. Also we need to seal from dust and water the gaps in the tail gate.

The Patrol is still a beaut car to drive and has done us well towing, but just not quite enough power when a bit extra is needed. It will be a shame to let it go, but it is too much $$s to keep it.
