Airbag vs. Aftermarket Seats

Hey guys, I've got a quick question. I found a set of aftermarket seats that I really like, black, cloth, very comfy.
Anyways, my question is this: my truck is an 02 with dual airbags and has wires running to a connector in the driver's seat that have something to do with the driver airbag. Would it be possible (that includes safe) to put aftermarket seats in? Would I have to somehow bypass that connector?
Thanks

well, are you going to use stock seatbelts or aftermarket harnesses?


i installed mustang buckets in my 01, used ranger tracks from a 93 and welded my stock seat belt bracket to it so i could still use the airbag setup

I know Djaye is running racing seats and a 4 point harness and he just disabled the stock seat belt chimer (air bag still goes off)

like scott said there. you can either disable the dinger or find a way to reuse stock hardware by some sort of custom work. the airbag stuff underneath the seat can be put back under the aftermarket seats with some customization as well. all they are are location sensors i believe.

I would probably be using the stock seatbelts and stuff. I dont want to disable the chime or anything, just making sure I could adapt that airbag stuff under the seat to an aftermarket one.
Thanks guys.

Re: seat airbag wire

How did you adapt the position sensor to your new seat? I am also planning to install aftermarket driver seat into a 2003 Edge, Standard Cab. It looks like the seatbelt can stay in place (not part of seat, but hopefully bolted to the floor), but there is a wire that seems to be going right into the seat. Any details on that process would be appreciated.
