Ok I thought so. I will find some heater pads on eBay and wire them in. Does anyone know if they have to be a certain kind? Like carbon.:rolleyes:

Most any 12v operated seat heater pads will work, size is important part. Now sure about access to them, may need hog pliers to get underneath seat covers.

Seat heaters sure are important, not so much for butt warmth in central texas but to bring food home piping hot!!

Never tried to wire aftermarket pads into factory wiring, so I would splurge and purchase the factory pad @ $170.

The one I am getting cost 15 dollars for two. they have holes in them for air to go through. I don't see it cause a problem. If too much draw, the worse it can do it pop a fuse right? big different 7.50 to 170.00.

You get what you pay for and it's a PIA so good luck. I've installed nuimerous aftermarket pads, but never any for $7.50
