A friend and I are planning a fishing trip. we're both about 200lbs but im calling us 225 with our clothes on, headsets, gear bag and dirt in the floorboard and lies told. Even with full tanks that keeps me under gross but doesn't get him in the front seat. I don't think he'd mind sitting in the back for the trip. Would you just have him sit in the back as opposed to putting him up front and filling the baggage area and back seat with dead weight?
