Nice....IMO he should be in the back seat instead of the front.

I put my kids in the front seat also. I feel like its safer than the rear seats.

Absolutely do what you feel is best for your kids, but I don't agree.

My issue is that I had to replace my rear seat belts and If I have to put a child seat in there they dont lock in, you know when you pull the seatbelt all the way out and it locks in place to hold the child seat down, the new belts dont do that. and I can turn off the airbag on the pass side so I dont see a reason not to have them in the front seat.

Well yeah if your rear seat belts aren't properly functioning. Not safe for anyone back there.

Lil yeller is correct all the way plus I always have the passenger air bag off, the seat belt locks , and I don't necessarily like the locking mechanism of the rear seat itself

Not that they dont function properly, they will lock on a collision, but the feature that will allow you to lock in a child seat isnt present in these new seat belts. Anyways it would seem you dont have any idea of the feature Im talking about, therefore its no use to agrue the point. To each their own, my kids are safer in the front seat with the air bag turned off.

If I had a child and I didn't have an immediate need for a adult front passenger I would absolutely put them in the front with the AIRBAG OFF. One it let's me keep a much better and easier eye on what there doing. And I believe it let's both of you share the travel time together better than if they were tossed in the back separated from you. And in Alan's case it lets the pups join your adventures!

I need to figure out how to shut that passenger airbag off, or even better, install a switch. I have need of the back to haul stuff sometimes, and will need to put my runt in the front (she's 10).

So, here is 1 month of manlification. What say you all, am I progressing?

Thanks! Mine is 2004. From my understanding, the X's were the only models with a Key switch for the airbag, since the rear seat was optional. Love to see the wiring diagram for it though!

My 01 Sport has a key switch for the airbag. Came with a rear seat that I took out.

I think Jeeps...especially Wranglers, are naturally pretty "rugged" looking...unless you intentionally screw them up with dubs, lots of chrome, etc. I suppose the easiest way to make a Jeep look more rugged would be to put on some bigger mud terrain tires and something like black steel wheels. See my build link. Went from stock chili pepper red and stock tires and with some rattle can paint, fender trimming, and 33" mud tires it got a $h!tload more rugged looking I think.

You didn't Lift it ??? to support the 33's...& if you did..what kit & how's the Ride ??? I got my Jeep 2 months
ago...I want to Run 33's...I have a 2inch coil spacer lift on front none on back...& 31x10.50's at the moment..

Look at the fuse panel behind the glove box there should be two fuses specifically marked with caution zigzags. On the top left. Ones drivers and ones passanger. Take out the passanger fuse and it disables it. But this does turn the airbag light in the dash on tho

I thought my Jeep was manly, then I realized it wore a Bikini.

How do you turn off the airbag?

I think all you gotta do is pull out the airbag fuse. Its behind your glove compartment (glove box).
There are many fuses there but its actually labeled.

Before I put a 4" lift on mine, I had a 2" spacer lift and ran 12.5 x 33's on 16 x 8 wheels with a 4.5" backspace. Everything cleared except for just very slight rubbing on the sway arms with the wheels fully cranked to one side.
