Has anyone put anchor points in a Nissan navara?

You would need to go to a place that is licensed to do so, you can't just put them where ever you want, there will only be certain places they can go. Some cars simply can't take any extras. So speak to an expert.
Also, you say 'them'. It should have 2 already surely? How many did you want?

We had them done when we bought it, when they did the window tinting, paint etc. We had to tell them how many we wanted and where and they did it.
We had 2 in- one on each side and they're reallllllllllllllllllllllllly annoyingly placed, they basically go down behind the back seats and every time we take the carseat in or out we have to pop the seat forward and spend 5mins on it, compared to about 30secs in the Falcon.

Thanks, there's none in there ATM.
We will take it to get it done, just wondering where they would go as we had no idea where!

We have just finished ordering our Navara and they have installed them for us, so maybe give your local Nissan a call?
ETA: They weren't cheap! I think they where around $500 each

We are getting anchor points put in our 97 Holden Rodeo Dual Cab because it doesnt have any, so I have had to research it a bit. I'm pretty sure with the Navara's it would be the same as with the Rodeo you will need a dcd bar. It costs around $250-$280 per point, installed, and it takes them about 3 hours per point depending on if the seat folds forward or not, it would take less time if the seat folded forward, and also if there is a canopy on the ute.
Hope that helped a little bit
p.s I have an 03 Rodeo Dual Cab & the anchor points are behind the seats so every time I need to re-install the seats I need to fold the seat forward to get to the anchors.

We have a 2008 dual cab Ford Ranger and it came with the holes in the back of the rear seat and you just screw in the anchor points that come with the car seat. They were hidden behind a flap of material, with just a V shape cut in the material. Maybe check to be 100% sure there's nothing like that there before you pay big $$$ to get soethign installed if you don't have to. Have you checked in your owners manual? It should have a section about anchor ponits in there.... fingers crossed you don't have to pay $500

I'm pretty sure only one or two of the Navara models come with anchor points.
We have an ST-X model which came with them factory fitted.
My father in law looked at another model, maybe the ST (looks pretty much the same to me) and he was told by Nissan it would be $500 per point.
I know we have at least two, I have never checked if there is one in the middle seat. The points are in behind the seats, so you have to pop the latch and move the seat forward to get to them... if that makes sense. If you were to sit in the seat youself, the point would be in line with about where your shoulder blades are but on the metal body of the car. Hard to describe! Hope that helps.

Just wanted to come back and let you know our Navara ST-X has 3 points (in case anyone looks up this post as a ref.).
