Get shorter friends.
I know SMB offers, or at least used to offer a "kids platofrm' that went across both front seats, but I think that would onnly give you about a 5'6" wide platform. Would be much easier than removing a seat.
My front passenger seat has an audio amplifier under it, not to mention an electrical connection for a seat heater. I wouldn't want to deal with that every time.
SMB-less as of 02/04/2012. Our savings account is richer, but our adventures are poorer.
