    Is it a fuse box or a module for the SRS? I know on the Fords it is. Ricon makes a 6 way seat base with a cutout for that. But I'm not sure if it'll work on the Chevy.

    ^^^ Those are group 34 so you'll lose quite a bit of range. On that topic, you could install group 22's and save more money, which works if you don't travel much in the chair.
