Not to mention, children are messy. That said, I don't have a kid, and I don't intend to. I already can't afford my Jeep hobby, how could I possibly if I had to feed and clothe my own spawn?

Speaking of affording things, gotta go earn my keep. Stupid all-day shift at work.
I survived an 86 Taurus when I was a baby. My neighbor drove her son around in her 98 ZJ. I figure it's alright since she's "Captain Safety." Shes the one outside cutting the grass with steel toe boots, safety glasses, and ear muffs. If it's safe enough for her, it's safe enough for me.

I've heard of a rare rear seat option that the center arm rest folds down into a baby car seat.

Considering no ZJ other than niners had a rear arm rest, I very much doubt this.

IIRC, 90s Caravans had that for an option. I don't recall them offering it in other models though. I know GM eventually adopted it for the Venture as well, I believe.

The ZJ with an integrated child seat does exist. It's rare. Most likely rarer than the ZJs with factory tire carrier.
