New seats compatable?

I am looking at upgrading my seats ( undecided on corbeau or Mastercraft) but I have factory side air bags. Is there a solution or will I have lights going crazy?

try taking the airbag out of your oem seat, and put it in your new one, it's not hard at all.. just need to take the seat cover off, and take the ab out, do a cut out in your new seat and voila', new seats with side ab's , and no lights on your dash.

The dash airbag switch is in the base of the seat. You can simply make a mounting bracket on mount the corbeau seat to the factory bracket. Thats what I did. The bracket they sell for the corbeau seat is not as good as the factory mounts and if you have the under seat cc drawer it will not fit under the corbeau brackets. Your new seats will sit about 1.5" taller then the stock one do by mounting them this way..

You have any pictures of this by chance?

Sorry I did not take any photos when I did it, but it only takes about 4' of 1.5"x3/16" steel bar welded into a square to make the adapter plate.

i bought the corbeau brackets. the seats sat lower than i wanted, so i had to space them up to match the passenger seat, which is also on top of the weight sensors.

in my 2007, there are 4 weight sensors between the slider and frame and a position sensor under both front seats. that sensor (looks like a relay) has to be mounted by the slider. its supposed to tell the computer if the seats are forward or back. i have mine tied up to the bottom of the seat... i guess i have to put the sensor down by the slider. as of right now, the airbag light is on. i have no side airbags.

i'm still riding in comfort. the corbeau seats are awesome in comparison to stock seats. all i have handy is an installed shot.

the sensor tell the jeep how much the passenger weighs and shuts of the passenger airbag if they are under weight.
