Default Does anyone have a seat belt extender...cheap? :)

As a reward for my weight loss, we bought an extremely well kept 2004 Dodge Durango for me to drive to my new job! Problem is my hubby is still a big guy and the seatbelts are just too confining for him. I am looking to find a "type B" seat belt extender that just clips into the existing seat belt. He would love to have a gray one, but I don't personally care, as long as he's comfortable and I don't have to return my vehicle because he can't drive it or ride comfortably.

If you happen to have one, any color will do, please let me know. I spent a huge chunk of money on this new vehicle, so modest pricing, or free, if possible would be extremely helpful. I will gladly pay for shipping, but if you're in the San Antonio/Austin, TX area, I will make the trip to meet you.

Thanks a bunch, fellow "losers"!!!

Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

Did you check Amazon.com? They have them for right around $20 plus I think it qualifies for free shipping. This way you know it's new and shouldn't be any thing wrong with it.

Call a car dealer...I have gotten several for different vehicles and no one has ever charged me. And it wasn't always when I bought the car...twice it was for vehicles I got from individuals. I just called a dealer and asked to order one and was told there was no charge...

I agree with Kathy. Go to the local Dodge dealer. They will order the one you need for free. Also, you will have peace of mind knowing that the seat belt extender you got is 100 percent compatible with your vehicle's current belt system. You never know how an aftermarket extender is going to work until you actually have an accident.

Update: Decided not to keep the Durango due to some electrical issues. Dealer we bought from was great about taking it back and finding us just the right vehicle. Instead, bought a gently used Chevy Tahoe that we love, and amazingly enough, the seatbelts are way more liberal than those in the Dodge Durango. Go figure! Anyhow, no extension needed for the hubby, after all, but thanks for all the input, friends! God Bless!!!
