    K&N air filter, but none now.
    I drove my truck today, and the seat belt light stays on when I'm buckled up. is there something i can unplug under the seat? would it affect the airbag?
    Also the seat belt re tractor drives me crazy, because it doesn't really work too well and i have to shove the seat belt in the truck so it wont be out the door.

    you can unplug the wires under the drivers seat but to get the light to go out iirc you will have to splice or jump the two wires going to the seat belt together or just cut the plug end off and connect them together.

    On mine if you unplug the one under the seat the light wont come on. I splice mine together when wheeling so the airbag wont go off and the light stays on.

    Seatbelt light won't come on if you unplug the wires under the seat. I'm not sure if it affects the airbags thought.

    It wont affect the airbag because it will think you have the seatbelt on. The problem is if you dont have your seatblet on the airbag will still go off because it thinks you have it on.
