The directions in the car seat manual and the in the truck manual will explain it better than me, but I'll try.
You can use the little metal clip that came with the car seat if the shoulder belt will not lock after being pulled all the way out. The upper anchor combined with the shoulder belt, the shoulder belt by itself, or just a lap belt are all sufficient (and legal) for a car seat. The LATCH anchors are an attempt to make car seat installation idiot proof because there were so many seats being installed improperly, not because the other methods were unsafe. The Super Duty does not have LATCH anchors, I'm surprised too. Of course crappy minivans are made to carry kids, why else would someone subject themselves to that mode of transportation?
