Is it airbag compliant?
Not much chop (pun unintended) if it's not going to save you & your passenger.

That is a good question. I suppose since it came off another similar vehicle that it would be compliant. In a very serious head on i feel that it would provide superior protection in terms of structural rigidity. Ill look into that though, good point.
