    Has anyone disabled their Event Data Recorder or know if you can without screwing things up? I just don't feel comfortable with that black box in my truck after reading how its been used to send driver to jail after an accident.

    I would rather loose the airbags then the privacy. None of my other duallies ever had airbags anyhow, my last 97 Chevrolet dually didn't have them and I never seem to miss them.

    In that case, it's under the drivers seat, just unplug it and it's dead.

    Build a little incendiary device with a little thermite and a couple relays... quick press of a button and EDR's gone.

    Realistically, someone will be made very rich when they start selling aftermarket airbag control modules that do not include event data recorders...
