The only writeup that I've seen here was when the non-airbag seats were transplanted into a newer model like you did.
I'd like to see a writeup on a new to new swap, and an old-to-old swap.
I don't have side airbags, but I'd want the swap to be as "plug and play" as possible, both for resale purposes and for liability issues.
I'd really not want to be in the position of owning a truck that killed a friend because I valued having buckets more than the designed safety standards. Not only would I feel like shit, but I'd imagine the insurance company might have something to say about it.
The problem with hacking the harness... if that is needed... to make '07 buckets work in an '07, is that there's no way to test the system to verify that the passenger airbag will work.
I'd love to install non-airbag buckets, but I'm not going to do it unless my bench harness will plug right in, and so far, I haven't been able to find any confirmation on whether they are compatible or not... only swaps between different years, or where magnets are needed on the passenger seat rail, or where the bench seat pressure pads need to be transplanted to the buckets.
