Car seats fitting in a truck?

It looks we are fastly approaching the weight and hieght limit for the infant carrier and will need to get new car seats. Is there a website where I can tell which ones will fit in which cars before buying? DH has a Dodge Ram Quad Cab, and I want to get something that will fit in there, since it is not that big. THe infanct carriers fit fine, but I am figuring the regular car seats are bigger right?

Nope, not really because there are so many different factors, bench seat, crew cab, captain chairs.. etc
We even tried calling Ford and they were no help. Dh dries a F250 SuperCrew XLT (it has two regular doors and then 2 swing doors and has Capt Chairs) We were able to put a Triumph5 in it an an Eddie Bauer seat in it but basically only in the middle due to the Captain chairs.
If you can fit the infant seats I don't see why you'll have a problem with the other seats well except for Britax. There was no way we were getting a Britax in there.

Your best bet is to go to the store and try them in your truck.

I would think that you could fit "regular" carseats in there (not much else, though). We can fit 2 Roundabouts in Steve's Jeep Cherokee.
