SRT8 seats in a non srt8??
 
There has to be a few people here who have done this. I have a 05 laredo and seats from a 06 srt8.
i just bought a set and i am curious if the connectors will plug in. the passenger seat is also power but mine is not. Is there a connector under the seat?

Also, the srt8 seats have heaters, you guys have any info on that?

the drivers seat will be plug and play. The passenger seat...you will have to find a good power source.... and ground it.

The heat is a totally different animal and beyond my capability or anyone here. I had a master automotive electrician do mine and it was a long, researched, thought out process for him. he made a custom harness. It works....but I have no idea how

yes....it was also a canbus issue so he had to add some other things for the heat to work.

That sounds pretty awesome, will you post pics when you're done? I'm in the same situation, i have an 06 WK with the cloth seats and i really dont like them... where did you get the SRT8 seats from? And are you replacing the back ones too?

You cant put the heated seats on an on/off switch. They need a control unit otherwise the will just keep getting hotter and hotter. You can go to a customizing shop or search online and buy a heated seat kit fir a seat with out heated seats and use their wiring harness and hook it up to the srt seats. you just need to find the right wires.
