I put the seats in during winter, so as odd as it sounds, I wanted to wait and do the wiring in the warm weather. It's on my to do list before the snow flys this winter.
If you are going to do this and make the seats heat, you need to grab the controller out of the center console of the donor vehicle. To clarify for the next poster's question, you need to remove the GC power rails from the seats and bolt to the manual rails out of the TJ, the slides will be manual. You will however, be able to retain the power back angle adjustment and power lumbar if equipped. The fold and tilt will not work the same, as the seat back remains fixed (power option as mentioned earlier). I am however, able to reach under the seat and flip the lever which will flip the seat forward just as before. The only difference is the seat back isn't so far forward. Hasn't been an issue yet. These seats are soooooo comfortable, they almost make up for the Pro Comp shocks I installed with my lift kit (I know, I know, what the he** were you thinking. Bilsteins coming soon). As for the elements acting on them, If I end up with the top down for extended periods or start wheeling through lots of water (doubtful), I'll have to get neoprene seat covers.
