Little did he know at the time.

Speaking of which, I wonder how the recall works on airbags pulled from other vehicles?

If you take your truck into the dealer you think they would replace it? Wonder if they need the vin the airbag came from?

BTW I know this is an old thread but I feel like this topic needs to be discussed considering our fellow members are now at risk and may not realize it.

To the MOD: I feel like we should modify the original post and have a disclaimer due to the recall.

Added one in for this specific case.

That said - I'm not interested in adding in "disclaimers" all over the place for the numerous modifications people dream up - but I see the point in this one.

Anytime a person modifies a safety related device there are inherent consequences as the combination hasn't been tested.

Should go without saying that proper research & investigation should always be performed.
