Anyone know of a 6-way power seat conversion for a 2018 Wrangler Sahara?

Just bought the wife a brand new 2018 Wrangler Sahara - she loves it. But it's got that manual seat crank up on the side and the manual slide for for and aft. She’s 4’10” and I’ll be worn out changing this back and forth whenever I drive it.

Couldn’t find anything online but was wondering if anyone knows of a 6-way electric seat conversion for a Wrangler? Thanks.

A thought - have you looked under driver seat to see if there are unused harnesses and connectors? Wishful thinking but a thought. As often the wiring is there for the option.

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.

No unused electrical plugs. There are 2 that are connected that I assume are for the heated seats and seat belt warning light.

never heard of a Jk with that option. More of a high end SUV thing. the main issue is what seats would even fit and from what vehicle with those options. I know it could be done just a matter of how much is it worth to you. I have a feeling it will be a totally custom job. since the jeep canbus wont support it. It would need a stand alone wiring and fuse etc..

the connections you are correct. one is the latch side seat belt indication. The other is the SRS seat sensor. at least on mine i have no heated seats. there was only those connection on mine. If ou have side air bags that brings in another issue if you change anything. gets complicated with SRS and seats. since anything other then stock may not really be designed for this application?

both are more SRS related. my jeep all that is disconnected. i dont run stock seats or belts, no air bags as well. to much risk off road for those things. I have them go off off road Flush that.

The way todo it is not to tap into the Canbus system. Instead you will run wiring and relays the old fashioned way. You might have less trouble making seats from a Grand Cherokee fit but that will still be a lot of work and no guarantee of results.

What it comes down to is you can make anything work with enough time effort and money. It is a matter of determining if it is worth it. For example you can install the jet engine from a DC10 aircraft in your Jeep, but it’s an awful lot of modifications to do that.

One of the things I hate most about power seats is how long it takes/ how slow they are to adjust.

Manual sliders are so much simpler and quicker, not to mention easier in that you only have two things to adjust, seat bottom and angle

The only benefit I see w/ 6 way power seats is the memory portion, if you have that setting built in. Otherwise, I'd pass and stay manual

If you had to choose between World Peace and a Jeep, what size tires would you run?
