    Looks like I am going to have to make a bracket for the buckle after all. It's too buried where I thought it might fit with no mods 20191031_212745.jpg

    The drivers side seems simple enough that one connection made the airbag light go out. The passenger side though I haven't dove into yet. I've seen some videos of people pulling the seat weight sensor out of the stock one and putting it in the new seat via the 5th point slot underneath and that's what I plan to try but I will post up what I find out when I get there

    Nope it's fixed back. But sliding it all the way forward and tumbling it a child could still squeeze in the back if they need to and I can reach gear behind the seat. It's a right fit but it's better than nothing

    I have mastercraft seat and my airbag light has been on since. Haven’t found a way to make it turn off.

    Did you put the weight sensor from the stock passenger seat into the new seat?

    So plan of attack right now for the drivers side buckle. I plan to attach it to the back right corner seat mount. With it attached at that point right now the buckle is pretty buried but I can still buckle it. Where I really want it to sit is about 3" higher so this weekend I am going to get some steel bar and drill some holes to bolt to the buckle and to the seat mount as an extension. Feels janky to do that but my engineering background tells me there should be no difference in strength over how it is mounted stock.

    The passenger side buckle has the airbag accelerometer dildo looking thing on it so I imagine it will look a bit different but I'll deal with that when I get there 20191101_222147.jpg20191101_222208.jpg20191101_223054.jpg20191101_223036.jpg

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
