Bolting it in a third row seat? that'd be fairly easy...just need something solid to anchor it to (like a thick piece of metal) on the underside to put the bolt through. do the same with seat [lap] belts and that should solve any law issues (actually some states i believe don't "require" rear seat passengers to be belted in, but I'd strongly suggest it for the kids safety!)...my big question is where are you finding enough room for a 3rd row seat? wranglers aren't exactly loaded on space...
as for torque...wrangler seats are fully removable (makes it easy to wash mud and stuff out) so as long as the bolts tighten down (air gun preferably, but you can arm twist em if need be) you'll be fine, just make sure everything is as secure/sturdy as the factory seats
I've never heard of anyone doing this but I would seriously advise against it. Adding another seat could pose a safety threat to the passenger and plus the seats are torqued to a certain spec that meet safety guidelines. Law enforcement might fine u as well.. for the modification of this vehicle.

your jeep should have all the holes and thread nuts already installed. pull up the carpet and locate them. the two close to the center are for seat belts as are the two outside of them. the four holes that form a large square/rectangular area are for the seat. if your seat is fold and tumble type, holes on the left wheel well are for the locking mechanism. i just pulled mine out and filled the thread holes with new bolts to keep out the water and dirt. yours may have screws or plugs in them. this install is for factory type only. mike
I'll begin by saying I'm surprised there isn't a 3rd belt on a bench seat, but I think you are entering dangerous territory. There is an immense amount of engineering, testing, and development involved in seat belt systems. They are anchored very securely at points that are reinforced and designed to withstand a human body being thrown against the belt, transferring the energy to the anchors of the belts. So, besides being beyond the scope of being possible to install by your average mechanic, I shudder to think of the legal angle. If u were to be involved in an accident, and someone was injured or worse in that seat wearing the added belt, the lawsuit possibilities are scary. Having said all this, check with your local dealer, maybe the Durango is set up somehow for an extra belt, but I've never heard it before.
