Is it possible to add 2 seats on the 8 seats transit wagon?
Is it difficult to do? and for safety such as airbag for the 4th row

I am planning to buy a medium roof transit wagon (8 seats) and hoping
to buy 2 seats from ebay and add it to the wagon.

Is it doable? and how? like where do I start? First take all the seats out I guess?

thank you

Even though the 10 and 12 passenger wagons are some of the hardest Transits to find both new or used, get the one with the seating you want in the beginning. The floor tracks are made to fit the specific seating arrangement so they are not easily adapted for adding seats.
The 3 seat in the front of the 8 passenger wagon is shorter than the back 3 seat in the 8 & 10 passenger models. The problem is having the track to attach the larger 3 seat on the outside near the passenger rear door.

To get the same 3 seat positioning in the second row as in the 8 passenger 130" WB, you would have to go with the 12 or 15 passenger seating in the 148" WB.

Best to find the 8 passenger wagon you want in a 2016 or 2017 on the lot, or just bite the bullet and order EXACTLY what you want. Trying to change something that was not engineered for that use might cause a problem later on.
Come up with exactly what you want, then send me another PM and I will look again at both 2016 & 2017 new or used if you want to go that route. If you just want the 130" WB and the 8 seat configuration, then go with that and will try to find the best one that fits your needs. If you have a set budget, then you will have to go with what you can handle.

A 2017 wagon now on the lot has a $2000 Ford rebate, after January 3rd, it will change to a larger amount. Ordering one will follow the same choices and the 2016 models will have lesser option choices and MORE rebates and incentives.
