Re: srt8 seats?

all he would have to do if that is the case, would be to swap the seat frame with his current frame. pretty simple and will make them plug and play

Re: srt8 seats?

old frame is gone! but idk what to do..i guess i have to see what harness's will fit and ya there 06-07 seats im pretty positive there 06. I have an 05 limited so shouldnt it just be plug and play all same features my old seats had just different design. i guess im wrong tho? because i definitely want my airbags to work considering the kind of accident i just got into!

Re: srt8 seats?

when i changed the seats in my 300 from stock leather to srt
the passenger side couldnt do a frame swap due to being manual, so i had to splice power from the driver side, but i assume u dont have that problem

i actually still might have the SRT seat bracket off of the passenger seat or drivers seat....or both lol

so u dont have the bracket off your stock seats?
u would think the plug off the srt8 seat would be the same, but i think the srt has memory seats, i dont know if ur stocks do

also as for the air bag light it comes on cause the srt seats are a different weight from the stocks so it throws that light, u will have to go to the dealer for that one..

Re: srt8 seats?

so u have ur old seats?
but u dont have the bracket from them?
im so confused


if the main plug from the srt seats doesnt plug into the cars main power then u should have to swap brackets...should take like 5 minutes to do so

if for some reason u dont have ur stock bracket...i guess u would have to splice power? but iono how well that would work for heated / memory seats

Re: srt8 seats?

havent tried to switch them yet! i wanted to know in advance so i know what im getting into when i install them once car is done! i sold my old seats so i dont have any of the wires that were connected or the metal pieces attached to the actual seat..all i have is the srt8 seats and there wires along with my car brackets they latch onto...this is it, is this plug n play or no

Re: srt8 seats?

they could be plug and play depending on your Jeeps connectors. Jeep made a switch to different connectors in 07.....so it depends on what year the SRt seats are. My drivers side was plug and play...but I had to wire in the passenger side because my original Jeeep passenger seat was manual. Im pretty sure I was the first to add SRT seats to a non-srt.

If you have the old seats out and sold...why are the SRt seats not already in?

i see i see, im hoping there from an 06 then. i was the one who totaled my jeep! putting the seats in last so they dont get messed up while getting repaired and doing all the srt8 conversions! should be a build thread coming along in a few weeks!
