It's good info. When I switch seats, I will be going with Corbeau seats, so I will need to bypass the airbags. I'd like to keep the front airbags functional, if at all possible, so the writeup helps.

Thanks

It's possible if the rail will allow for it. The rail sensors come off very easy, just a few screws.

And now for the center console...?

Great write up. I've got TRD buckets ready to install and appreciate the info.

I also bought a full auto. center console and it looks like there will be compatibility issues. Has anyone made this swap? Is it possible?

Thanks

Im assuming you have an automatic transmission. The 4.0 V6 Center trim is not compatible with the 2.7L Automatic transmission(different placement). However, the Manual V6 center Trim will work with the 2.7L
Manual. im going to make a console write-up in the OP.

Thanks. I've got a 2.7L 4X2 auto. I bought a V6 full console from a wrecker ($100), and you're right, different placement. Do they even make a full-length for a 2.7 4X2?
Thanks again!
