    Yes but it just take one time and besides there is more than one sensor in truck anyway.

    My local Chev dealer said that I should pull the airbag fuse when plowing when I asked them about plowing with a '96 K2500. I really wanted to know about the "plow package" but it seems that has to be factory installed.

    Pulling the air bag fuse alone will not disable the system. The charge capacitors also have to be de-energized to disable the system.

    I wouldn't worry about it, in my 17 years as a GM tech i have never heard of an air bag deploying while plowing. I myself have hit some curbs and parking bumpers very hard in my 02 2500HD and i haven't had any problems. If you are truely worried about it just pull the sir fuse, the capasitor only lasts for 10 minutes after battery power is lost.
