    Do these aftermarket bumpers in any way affect the air bags?

    Eh, whipper. What's the sandwich for? Making me hungry. I see your down in Chino Hills. I visit that area on occassion. Any legal OR'ing locally around there? I used to mountain bike there and remember plenty of open area but that was 15 yrs ago.

    Airbags deploy due to inertia, not a crushed bumper.

    so no bumper will stop them from going off, in a hard front end collision.
