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.

Real easy to do. Go to and look for the write up on doing just that. Good luck.
PSA - It would be nice if people made an attempt while typing to discuss their problems or opinions instead of one long sentence with no punctuation. Maybe I'm cynical, but that really pisses me off. Rant over.
