    First trick is to see whether your existing bench has side curtain air bags in it or not.

    If not, the swap is simpler.

    I took the panels off to install a set of components, didnt see an airbag. Im guessing it would be somewhere else though. How would I find out if I have them?

    Are you talking in the seat or the overhead?

    In the overhead there should be a little box (you can see the one on passenger side .... there is one for the front and back seat) just about even with your head telling you so. If it is the seat you are wondering about there should be a little tag stating so, shoulder high ... see picture (I know these are buckets but the bench should have the same tag).
