Not that I know of.
I'm in the same boat. We have to drive my wife's SUV now all the time. 5 kids and my wife and I just won't fit in the Pat.

when i was a kid in the 70's, we would have been thrown in the back, no belts or nothing. and we would have loved it, firing our toy guns at every car we saw.
.....but these days, the cops would fry us for endangering a minor if we put our kids back there with no belt on.

I have been looking as well. This site has them but not Patriot specific. Maybe one with the right measurements can fit. Let us know what you come up with.

Or pick up a wrangler back seat that folds and tumbles. This way you can free up some extra space when the kids aren't in the back.

Here you want more seats in the Pat and I'm removing mine. Go figure. Now that I have my rears removed, one can see all the passenger safety features built into the frame especially the anchor points for seats and seatbelts and shoulder harnesses. A third row could possibly be added per se but the spare tire cover would have to be modified, redesigned or reinforced. But never say never, guess it depends on how small the creatures are that would be sitting back there and what type of liability you can withstand in a mishap (no thanks to the lawyers).

I'd think twice before putting the seat in there though.
The vehicle designers assume that no-one would be there. They may have relied on that space for crumple zones and may not have the same roof strengths back there.

Just something else to keep in mind.

All safety issues aside,(where I like them) I think this is a great idea? However, I'd do the old station wagon "way back seat" treatment where the seat is backwards. Our 63 Chrysler wagon has a reverse seat and oddly enough it is quite comfortable even for adults. The roof line is exceptionally low on that vehicle so finding the right head room in the Patriot would be easy and just a case of how high the seat pad is. The reverse seat also makes boarding easier. You can enter through the gate without crawling over a seat back, or crawling over the back seat. I would build my own seat though. Anything you buy will need serious modification and making it from scratch would be easier in the long run.

NO INCUMBENTS!

Adding third row seats are possible but we have to keep in mind that safety must come first...

as a parent safety is always in issue, however, if all of the govt safety warnings ever came true, none of us would be alive today. i like the rear facing idea, maybe get a wrangler folding seat and attach it to some kind of crossbars to go over the spare tire cover. hmmm.

It's always your choice Cdconte. As long as you're aware of the potential issues.
I'm not sure what kind of trouble (if any) you'd get into if you were stopped by a police officer with your kids in the back.

You could use the tie down loops to anker your seats too, they are load rated for more weight then a standard adult. Rear facing would be perfered, but I think that forward facing with the folding rear seats folded down for access would work too. The structure of the vehicle is front end crumple olny and the rear is designed to protect passengers from cargo durring the crumple. If they hadn't then if you had anything solid in the cargo area during rear inpact it would crush the rear passengers. I watched a rear impact crash test prior to buying the patriot and it held up nicely.

Sometimes, war is the peaceful solution.

Everyone should believe in something…I believe, I’ll have another beer.

You could do like an extended cab Ford Ranger (and many, many others) and have the sideways-facing jump seats. The seat bottom could then be folded up to restore most of your cargo room. Plus, if you only need one more seat, you could place it on the passenger side. This would let you utilize the existing center passenger shoulder strap (located on the passenger side) and just add a buckle and lap strap for the way-back seat.

Wouldn't be THE most comfortable seat in the vehicle, but it'd certainly get the job done. Plus, that kid would have more legroom than anyone.
