Practical converting to power seats?

My wj has a power driver seat but the passenger side is manual and has no height adjustments which drives me nuts.

Would I be able to swap this into the passenger side using my existing seat or would I have to pull a whole power seat assembly out of a junk yard? I see the problem is my seat does not have any controls to operate it if I were to swap in just the power base.

You can swap the bases and use the same seat. You'll need a new bezel for the switches, and the switches themselves. Pretty easy job.
