The airbag steering wheel looks pretty different from the non airbag wheel with a larger squarer center pad. My 94 and 95 F150s had the driver's side airbag, my nephew's 97 F250 HD (old style) and 92 F150 had the same non airbag steering wheel. Passenger side airbags were only offered on the newer body styles. Do be careful about using the back seat with kids and the back glass. My Grandson loves the fact that he can ride in the front of my truck.
Please be careful and follow all safety instructions before removing the airbag pad.
regards
rikard

YOU HAVE NO AIR BAGS IN YOUR TRUCK. Only half tons had them up untill 99, then the F250 and larger got them too

Easy job with the 2 "removal tools" for the 4 small holes, 1 in each corner of the stereo.
