RRO Brush Guard and Air Bags
Does anyone know the impact the RRO Brush Guards have on airbag deployment in the event of a crash (outside of off-road stuff)?
My father-in-law was a 27 year mechanic at Subru. I mentioned what I wanted to do to my TH (RRO Brush Guards, etc), and he told me to be careful. In the mechanic world, he remembered one of the big lawsuits regarding airbag vs brush guard. Someone put an aftermarket brush guard on their Pathfinder, got into an accident and the airbags didnít deploy. They sued Nissan and lost, since the aftermarket altered the performance of the safety measures. Not Nissan's problem.
I donít care about who would win a lawsuit, but more worried about my wife and kid's safety if there was an accident on the high-way (non off road).
PS: I know people posted that RRO is working the Brush Guard for the Tech Group over the Ďwinter monthsí. So I am going to wait, since I donít want to mod myself (cut holes like some folks did). But thought Iíd ask and see if anyone has info on the airbag issue. Iím not sure how it would work in the Wrangler world, since those things are meant to me modded.
