    Default 2nd row captains chairs????

    We will being having our third child this coming June, I really do not want to buy a newer vehicle to add more convenience for accessing 3 kids. So i am wondering was there ever a factory option for my 99 Suburban LT for 2nd row captians chairs or am I gonna have to look into aftermarket? Adding this would make it so much easier to put our oldest child into the 3rd row or getting to him whil the vehicle is in motion.

    My 2001 Suburban has 2nd row buck seats instead of a bench seat. The seats actually fold down and if I remove the 3rd row bench seat I can put full 8ft long sheets of plywood just like if I had a 8ft long bed pickup truck.

    I don't think I understand, my Suburban has the second row bench, which is what I wanted for more seating, and I can put three adults in that seat and they do not complain about it being to tight, I would think you could put three kids back there, even if one was in a car seat, heck I remember back in the days when seat belts were optional my dad put a BIG seat belt in the back seat of our Dodge station wagon, and that one belt held all three of us, and we were not little kids, we fought but we all servived.

    My Suburban doesn't have a bench in the middle, my truck has the optional bucket seats instead. I don't know if you can simply swap your bench out for buckets or not.

    I just leave the second row passenger seat down in the stowed position. That leaves easy access to the 3rd row, and still have two spots in the second row.

    Ok, thank you for your suggestions but I am just looking for an answer, did the factory have a bucket option for a 99 susburban, @mongoose our suburbans are not the same bodystyle. Also we will have 3 kids in carseats so sticking them all in one row isnt really an option as they simply wont fit.

    Not on the subject of seats, but do you have or are having twins?

    OH, sorry and congrats.
    I had a three year old, and then twins, but my three year old was on his way to four before the twins got here, when they started coming two at a time we decided we were done

    I don't see mention of it in the owners manual.
    Download it here, http://www.extendedgmwarranty.com/owners-manual/gmc/1999-GMC-Suburban.pdf
    Only of the 60/40 split second seat.
