Looking for advise on installing a car seat

So I have to install a car seat in my XJ for my daughter. She’s 5 and has one of those convertible car seats where it comes apart to accommodate when they grow. The seat has the latch system but the car doesn’t. I’m trying to figure out how to go about installing the seat.

Any ideas?

Just wanted to update this. I found an Instructables DIY for this. Basically you go buy 2 5/16” eye hooks and drill a hole for each through the body of the truck. Then just mount them up and you now have a place to get the child seat to connect to. It works perfectly and seems very secure. I put lock washers on and actually put 2 nuts in the bottom to prevent them from coming loose.
