I have another question?!? I just bought an 03 sahara and absolutely love it, except for one thing. It doesn't have the passenger side airbag on/off option. I have a little baby boy on the way and was wondering if there was any way to either install a switch to turn it on and off of easily disconnect it so I can reconnect it when my wife rides up front. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance!!
Mine has the console key cutoff in front of the shifter, but there are the 2 10 amp fuses behind the glove box as well. Dont care for airbags myself, pulled both my driver and passenger side out and sold them on ebay for 400 bucks. The control module itself is under the front of the console as well if your looking to permanently disable it but be warned, dont try to splice into the wiring to put a switch or some sort of shutoff. The bag works off resistance and any change in current can cause problems or even set it off. A 9 volt battery will actually fire the airbag. Ive done it lol. Redneck entertainment.

I'd strongly advise not putting a car seat in the front. First, it is difficult to secure the seat enough to make it safe, second, even with the fuse pulled, the system still carries a residual charge that might still deploy the air bag. the best place to put the car seat is in the back, there are 2 'LATCH' systems to secure the car seat. It is a little more of a pain to get back there but I've seen some pics of some bad accidents with the car seat in the front and some horror stories that would have been different if that seat was just in the back... Please please spend the extra time and get that kid in the back.
First of all, DO NOT put your child in the front seat of your car. That is the WORST place you can put your child. It is also the most unsafe place for them. The safest place for you child is in the back seat.

One thing to consider with the pasenger side airbag. If your wife is short, you may want to disconnect it anyway. Airbags are dangerous for shorter adults too. I know you guys probably don't have to worry about this, but some of us women do.
Good girls go to Heaven. Jeep girls go where ever they want.
As for the airbags, I got to witness mine going off from inside the jeep a few years back. Having a baby up front would be a bad idea. I am happy to say the design of the jeep let me walk away from the semi truck that hit me, and with out any harm to me, except my totaled jeep.
