    Stow n Go Conversion

    I recently bought a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SE with YES fabric and the middle row bench with integrated child seat. I found Rollx Vans on Ebay who convert vans for handicap use. They remove the stow n go seats and covers and sell them on ebay. $60 for the cover and $90 for the (2) seats plus shipping. The change out is simple.

    Tools
    1. Narrow blade screw driver (for prying off caps covering nuts)
    2. 7/16" socket for removing nuts holding cover in place.
    3. 15mm socket for removing/installing nuts on brackets

    1. Remove bench seat.
    2. Remove bench seat floor cover.
    3. Remove brackets in compartment for rolling bench into.

    The new buckets are a left and a right unit. Make sure you have the correct one on the correct side. The easiest way to tell is the backrest lever is on the outside of the bucket.

    4. Place completely folded bucket in a vertical position making sure the mounting/hinge bracket goes over the studs.
    5. The mounting bracket will stay on the studs, so completely fold the seat into the floor.
    6. Install the three (3) nuts onto the studs, and tighten completely.

    Once both seats are installed, install the stow n go floor cover .

    Remember, the bench seat cover will not work with the stow n go seats. You will have to use the cover designed for the stow n go seats.

    When removing the bench seat brackets, there are two (2) nuts to be removed. The stow n go buckets use three (3) nuts for attachment. Rollx Vans provided the extra nuts for attachment, along with all covers necessary to complete the job.

    The whole process will take 30 min or less. You may want to get some help in removing and installing the cover as it is large, and just plan easier with two (2) people.

    Good Luck!!

    Stow n Go Conversion

    Steve,

    Sent you an email. For others, the seller is rollxvans55378. They covert new vans for handicap use, and don't have seats and covers available all the time. Only when they are manufacturing a batch.

    DO you have to remove the spare tire and relocate it up to the front? Do you need a different spare too?

    Is this only a 3rd row conversion, or both 2nd and 3rd? I thought that the non-stow-n-go vans had the well in the back (therefore you could convert the back row), but no wells for the 2nd row flip-seats. Do the '05-'07 non-stow-n-go vans have the middle row storage wells?

    Even if they don't, just converting the 3rd row would be very nice.

    ....not that any of this matters for my '00 GV

    Stow n Go Conversion

    I have a 2008 DGC SE with the integrated child seat bench. This was a fleet vehicle (rental) that was equiped this way, that I bought used with 14K miles on. Maybe that is why it is equiped the way it is. The 2009 DGC have stow n go standard across the board. I can't answer the question for a Gen 4 DGC or T&C, but I have read that the conversion will work. Maybe someone else on this thread can reply to it.

    I had had a 1997 DGC ES w/AWD that I WISH had stow n go. When chrysler came out with stow n go, the middle buckets were quite a bit smaller than previous "captains chairs", This was done in order for them to fold into the floor. As far as I know the stow n go feature was ONLY availabe on the long wheelbase DGC & CT&C. The short wheelbase versions were only available with the old style seats where they had to be removed from the vehicle to get the flat floor.
