New front bumper

Probably a stupid question but I'm wanting a new bumper so I can put a winch on my 2001 TJ. Will this affect the airbag system?

Airbag module is in the cab in front of the shifter.

The answer is NO..... the bumper will NOT affect your airbag system

What makes you think this may affect the airbag system? There are no sensors or even any wires in/going to the bumper. I'm just wanting to know if I'm missing something

^ This. It's located under the center console at the very front, in front of the shifter.

So there are no shock sensors in the front at all?

No. As confirmed twice above, the only airbag sensor is mounted under the console at the very front.

The accelerators (sensors) are in the module on the circuit board if I am correct. That is a whole lot cheaper than sensors all over the place in a vehicle like they use to have.

The TJ's airbag sensor is really nothing more than a steel ball in a tapered slot. If there is a strong enough forward impact, the steel ball is forced forward into the tapered slot far enough to trip the airbag switch.
