Jeep TJ airbag

I drive my jeep off road a lot and run into small trees etc...
How much force would it take to set the airbag off??

You would need to hit a big tree going faster then 20 mph to deploy the airbags.
Air bags are deploy when large GeForces are measured buy the air bag sensor cause by a rapid deceleration if you hit something or rapid acceleration if something hits you.

We offroad our Jeeps on rough enough terrain to know that airbags going off is just not a realistic concern. If it ever went off, you probably drove your Jeep nose first off a cliff where you'd be happy it activated.
