Booster Seat advice / Jeep

I have a 5 y.o. who is over 40lbs and want to switch her to a booster in the next little while in our old Jeep Liberty.  We have an Evenflo in our other car and are happy with it but it won't fit in the jeep.  It's too wide.  We have to position the booster on the side as I have a 12 y.o. that also rides in the back seat.  She's very tall for her age but only about 42lbs.  We replaced the other seat with a booster because the straps were getting worn.  Her current car seat still fits her but won't much longer.  She's fine on the weight but is getting close on height and she's chaffing about using the 5 point harness now that she's getting used to the booster in the other car.  Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Do you have a budget in mind?

I like the Britax Frontier 85.  It's a combination booster/harness.  She could stay harnessed up to 85 lbs. or 57 inches and then it turns into a booster for up to 125 lbs.  The Parkway SG is a really nice HBB too.
