Goooood afternoon Fellow Sport Enthusiasts-

Husband and I are looking for a good Car Barrier for our Badlands; we have three huge dogs and we want them to stay in the back-back of the SUV. Does anyone know of a good place that would have something suitable? I'm talking the metal barrier for behind the rear seats, not the weenie thing that goes between the two front seats to keep the dog from going in the front (that I just saw at some random Ford dealer parts catalog). Thanks for the assistance!

We have always used the Walky guard And use it in our FJ cruiser. Will get one for our BS. It attaches to the two headrests. You do not need a middle headrest. It was good enough to keep our two German shepherds in the back. Nice thing is that it is easy to remove if needed. Slide headrests up when first tightening in the knobs, then slide them down as far as they can go to provide last tight holding area. And with bronco headrests it will also probably have a bar right behind and across the back of the two headrests which is good also.

this is the walky one. Nice thing is it is very adjustable and if you want to put down the back seat at times and give them more space, you can hook it to back of front seats also which we also did. Very flexible system.

this is the walky one. Nice thing is it is adjustable on width.

THANK YOU!!

I like it because we can reach through it if needed while inside the car to hold a water bowl, hook a leash, etc you cannot do that with those full metal mesh ones. And it is more adjustable than a lot of the other tubular ones we saw.

If you already have the car you know the space with back seats up - if not you may want to check it out. Not all that much depending on how big your dogs are. For other per owners, they may be interested this unit I have - fits behind the front seats and has excellent coverage and rear visibility.

We have our car, yes. The dogs are 68#, 80# and 85#. The 68 & 85 #ers are great in the back seat. The 80# puppy needs more containment and he would be in the back-back. Thsnks for suggestion!

It is massively flexible on size. If your pups are major escape artists the side extenders are thinner which they could push on to bend. Our shepherds were well behaved. One was 100 pounds and the other 65
