F350 and kids car seats.

My truck doesnt have a ratcheting center shoulder belt in the middle in the back seat, seems dumb. And where are the anchor brackets on the bottom of the seat it has the upper ones. The new supercrews have them but not the superduties I guess.Might have to take the truck back and get a dodge or something.

Have you tried reading the Owner's Guide section on installing a child booster seat, either with or without using the tethers? I haven't seen a 2011 SuperDuty Owner's Guide, but I'll bet it's in there.

I think I read somewhere that the child seat must go in the wife's mini-van, not in a Super Duty! (at least thats what I have my wife believing! )

Well I have a country girl and she likes to ride in moms new truck. I'm sure you can use the seatbelt but I know they were giving tickets to for not using the ratcheting seatbelts and I prefer to put the car seat in the middle back seat not on the sides. I just figured that fords best truck ever would have the seatbelt anchors as standard stuff since its standard in a crappy minivan.

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?

I am using the middle rear shoulder belt with the metal clip. This is a rear facing seat.

If you take the truck back because of a car you are crazy my friend! I have my car seat in the middle and I use the seat belt just fine. Read your owners manual on how the seat belt functions and how to put a car seat correctly in your Super Duty. I agree with you on the anchors though, I wish they did have some on the bottom of the seat. But if you buckle and pulled the seat belt all the way out and then let it go back in it starts some kind of locking mechanism. Mine seat belt has worked fine for me with my daughters car seat. Best wishes to you.
