car seat question

DH has family that lives in michigan.  FIL is taking DS up there with him in 2 weeks.  He drives a Ford Ranger with the suicide seats in the back seat.  i was wondering if FIL could put DS in the front seat with his car seat in teh front passenger seat if he turns the air bag off.

DS is almost 2 and a half and weight about 35 lbs, and he is about 3 feet tall.  hes very tall for his age. 

i looked up car seat laws, and all it said was that rear facing car seats couldnt be in the front and that the air bag should be off.  so i wasnt exactly sure on if it would be ok for the 3 hr drive up there.  any advice would be greatly appreciated.

this is a pic of DS.

If they're side-facing jump seats, the front seat with airbag disengaged is a better option.

That they are. They are attached to the doors
