After a couple long trips I swapped out the butt busting stock seats with some nice all power leather ones from an Explorer. But the passenger seat does not have the weight sensing pad to enable/disable the passenger airbag system. Is there a way to install a manual switch for this function? Or is there a nice seat swap option that includes this? Maybe a later model Explorer?

The earlier rangers used a key switch to enable or disable the passengers side airbag instead of the weight sensor. Im not 100% certain but I would think you could swap in that switch to bypass the weight sensor switch. I believe they were used in 1998-2003.
