No power driver seat? I would have assumed every WK2 made had atleast a power driver seat. Interesting.

Re: power driver seat?

Now I personally don't care about the power adjustment but both the Driver and passenger seats should have had manual height and lumbar adjustment..

Honestly every time I ride in our Laredo E's passenger seat I can't get comfortable.


Jeep could have taken the extra step and made the JGC feel like a premium SUV if it had taken that extra step then they would not have felt inclined to give power driver seats in the first place...

But now taking the power driver seat away and not even giving you the same adustment manually is hard to swallow.

Re: power driver seat?

Didn't realize there was such a thing as non-motorized height adjustment! I've had non-motorized lumbar adjustment (in/out, not up/down). I'll take the motor, please.

As to swaping seats, this is probably possible. While I haven't checked the Jeeps, in my last vehicle I just visited a bone-yard and pulled a power seat with the same color plastic trim, re-skinned it in leather to match the rest of my seats, and plugged it into the pre-existing harness provided from the factory. Had that vehicle for 12 years, but didn't think about easy upgrades until the last year of ownership (face-palm).....

Re: power driver seat?

yes they can be exchanged and all you really need is the base. The seat skins and cushions are interchangeable between bases. I have been looking for a power seat for my 2012 Durango as well since my sxt does not come with them. Our Jeeps and Rangos use the same exact seats and plugs so dont limit your search for just a jeep seat
