WRONG! you need to do what IS the safest, not what you think is the safest... you can think all you want your child is going to be able to breathe underwater, but at the end of the day, if you believed it 100% your child still ain't going to be doing too well...
as for the people who are saying the bracket idea in the back is unsafe, if it's done right, it can be just as safe as the front seat, just because you add something into a vehicle, doesn't mean that it's going to make it less safe... i have a 1936 ford sedan, if i put a custom rear seat in, and add seatbelts, does that make it less safe than the factory rear seat? (i should remind you, no one knew what a seatbelt was in 1936)
is the bracket idea the SMARTEST idea? probably not... ford DID design the passenger seat for baby carriers, so i would put my kid there... it was intended for it, it was tested for it, it has been approved, it is legal... unless you go find the DOT regulations for a rearfacing carseat's restraint system, and you follow those guidelines to a T, THEN go get it actually approved by the DOT, and get paperwork saying it is approved, i would not do the basket idea... your girl can sit up close to you and rub your thigh, or she can sit in the back, your child comes first, then your truck, then you, then your wife (nah, jk again, but your baby does come first)
