How to secure pet in front seat?

How do yall with no top and no doors secure yalls pets in the Jeep, preferably in the front seat? I'm trying to come up with a good secure method for my 50lb dog so that she won't fall out on a turn and if I hit something suddenly on the beach that she won't go flying into the windshield.

I also am looking for ways, only back seat for my 50 lb dog, as that is his go- to spot.

Dog in a full harness.
Leash attached to floor in the back, behind the center consol. You want the leash just long enough that the dog can't hit ground, if he/she falls off the front seat.
Carry rabies's and shot records, just in case.

Dog harness with seat belt attachment is what I use, but I've found that my dog likes the back seat way better.

Good friend of mine and his dog. He is on every trail with us.

Harness the dog and loop the leash to the rollbar overhead of him before securing it to the harness. If he does fall out he will be tied in to a high point and that will keep him from dragging or getting wrapped up in the tires.

For my dogs I removed the back seat and made a 3' paracord lead on a swivel that anchors into the U shaped bracket in the floor from the flip forward benchseat. This way they can move around but are still tied into the center of the jeep. Seen here holding gas and water cans but you get the idea.

My dog is always in the back seat laying or sitting down with a full chest harness and leash looped around the roll bars center. The leash is just long enough to reach either side to lean out a little so the dog can get his face in the wind. Don't all dogs do that! I use a screw that threads through the leash and into the roll bar threaded hole for the hardtop rubber cushion that prevents the leash from sliding to the left or right.

The picture below does not show the leash or harness as she just got in a settled down waiting for a ride.

If you go to the pet store they have harness designed to strap dogs in vehicles.

I have seen those but all of them you have to put the seat belt through it and it allows the harness to slide and I was afraid that it would allow her to slide outside the Jeep.

I appreciate all the ideas and input. Gives me something to think about.

The harness I have buckles in, just like my seat belt does. Works great.

I bought mine at a local pet store, but I've seen them at Pet Smart before too.
