Disconnect Airbags for Offroad

Does anyone know if there is a way to disconnect/disable the airbags when offroading? Like an override setting or something.

Hate to hit something and deploy them.

You won't ever need to disable your airbags, ever.

Unless you hit something at 50 mph you won't need to disable it.

Guess nothing that I'd be going 50+ mph!May he slamming into a mud hole at 25.

Hope you'll are right. I heard replacements are expensive.

I dont think you have anything to worry about. Myself, Big50 and a couple others have done some actual offroading and none of had issues with the airbags. So unless you plan on doing jumps like a Raptor you will be fine (even though mturo just bought a Raptor, too. Jerk. haha)

You should call them. Not everyday ppl see wk's like ours. They should be excited to send you a dozen or so.

My offroading...

Went down it, but not back up. Tried but spun my wheels on the rocks. Mud and stream made it too wet.
