    Default commercial chassis airbags

    Does navistar, or an aftermarket maker, produce airbags for navistar chassis? I might have backed myself into a corner on an AFG grant with airbags on a commercial chassis...

    I made an inquiry today to the marketing manager within Navistar who is responsible for emergency vehicles. He replied that they do not offer air bags and have no plans to do so.

    If you are at FDIC, stop by their booth and speak to Bob.

    As far as I know GM was the only manufacturer to offer air bags. That was what they told us as a selling point.

    Wrong kind of airbags, though i could put those in to satisfy the requirements.could make a nice ride for the body. :-)

    We are past 1199 & 10Q and are waiting. I just want to be able to get moving when the(hopefully) award drops.

    EDIT: There goes the time zone thing again.
