1. Jump seats were only offered on the Land Rover Discovery Series 1 and 2. (IE they fold up on the sides of the cargo bed).
They are not offered on the Range Rover.
2. There is an aftermarket company that makes a rear facing 3rd row seat. While it does fold and can be removed, it isn't the most practical. And it is extremely overpriced. I looked into this way back when I bought my Rover 6 years ago. Wasn't worth it.
I believe Overfinch sells them. I've had one in my wife's RR for 5 years...it's top notch. We've used it a lot over the years. Yeah it was expensive, but this is a Range Rover right? Everything is expensive.
out of interest how are they mounted, i have the overfinch rear facing ones which mount off the seat brackets. I assume if they are front facing there must be some significant brackets through the removeable floor section above the spare wheel well?
Range Rovers have NEVER had a third row seat or jump seats. Thankfully, according to Gerard McGovern, they never will. **“Range Rover is the crown jewels in our model range, so it’s things like formality, elegance, sophistication and the levels of those you dial up from one vehicle to another, which creates that hierarchy and positioning," he went on to say, "“This is why we won’t do a seven-seat Range Rover, because with this vehicle, it’s about exclusivity. The optimum seven-seat vehicle for us is the the Discovery, and it’s probably equal or not far off the Range Rover in terms of premium-ness, but overall the Discovery is about versatility, whereas with Range Rover it’s about refinement.”**Overfinch made them for their conversions. As they were an exacting match to the leather and patterning they were ungodly expensive. Little seats made a weak attempt at kits for many SUVs that didn't offer third row seats. Sadly they were more on the generic side and suffered the same "novelty" concept as Overfinch seats. They were rear facing, with no third point shoulder belts and left kids dangerously close to the hatch glass in the event of a rear impact. **Both were prior to weight and age limits on child seat/restraint requirements. These are similar in most states and are basic common sense. Childred under 8 years of age or under 5' tall must use a child restraint appropriate for their weight and height. Children under 13 years should ride in the back seat when practical to do so.
I know jump seats were never a factory option. I know what Land Rover said. I’m asking if anyone has sourced a aftermarket soulution before I have to trade my Range Rover in. Little passenger seats had a great aftermarket 3rd row. Shoulder belts, matched the interior. However they have gone out of business. I’d rather pay $2000 and keep the truck I love (and paid off) then spending 50k+ on a Range Rover Sport or GL550. If I’m out of options, it is what it is.
