    I have thought about upgrading my 92 YJ in a few years to a TJ. Has anyone had a problems with airbags and plows? This may be an old or irrelevant question to some, but I have always plowed with older vehicles. I know what sometimes I have hit things hard.

    Plowmeister should know........

    how can you have a problem with it? the plow is in front of the truck, and your airbag sensors are on your bumper

    When you hit something hard enough to CRUSH the front of the jeep the air bags will deploy.

    On a TJ - the airbag sensor is near the steering column, where it goes through the tub - NOT anywhere near the bumper. Any sort of plowing, hitting, tripping the plow, etc will not set off the air bag. You have no worries.
