Default Jump Seat Weight Limit?

I am looking to drive to lunch with a couple co-workers. I'd like to be able to drive since I drove to lunch alot before I got my ranger. Does anyone know the weight limit for the rear jump seats. BTW, we are all in our 20's so it's not like I am trying to put some 60 year old back there

Well the heavyest person Ive seen on one was like 210-220. Any bigger than that they cant really get back there... Not really sure on the exact weight limit though. If they can get back there without getting stuck the seat can hold them

----------

The manual doesnt list a weight limit so it shouldnt be a problem

THey have to be designed to hold a lot since they have to absorb your weight plus the forces of a crash. Like the US Mail, if it fits, it ships.

I'm 240 and I've sat on mine a couple of times with no troubles other than being cramped cause I'm big as shit for the back of a Ranger.

I'd be more concerned about size than weight... I had my bro and his friend back there and they sat on the seats without problem but you couldn't lean the front seats back to their normal positions... I'm with Matt on this one

If you cant get back to the seats, its safe to assume they can't hold your weight hahah

one of buddies sat in one of the jump seats in my 95 ranger and he broke it. He was around 320 pounds. It was quite the site to see him squeeze in back there. He actually got stuck after he broke it. I died laughing.
