If you are keeping the stock sliders, it is a bitch to get the seatbelt fastener off. You have to cut the bolts out, at least, thats how I did it. tongue

I'd keep the stock seat belt, Just incase some DICK cop tries to give you a ticket for "not wearing your seatbelt" because you were wearing a racing harness...

What they mean by Dangerous is incase of a rollover.. nothing to support the roof crushing un except your skull and spine cause your body cant move out to the side.

Plus the harnesses are not Legal because fo this.

dangerous because if its installed poorly
the down presure of the harness will crush
your spine. Not because of rollover

I'd stay away from harnesses unless you have a roll cage...
