    I've been toying with the idea of replacing my manual driver's seat with a powered one. Of course I would have to buy it used and I've found a few online. Before I go and buy the thing, I was wondering if anyone has done this upgrade before? If so, how difficult is it? Is there anything I need to look for or any other parts I would need to buy other than the seat?

    Thank in advance for all the replies.

    12V should be all you need. No memory seat adjustments on Nitro, at least not that I know of. Wiring harnesses are universal. Check if yours had a plug available for use. Do seats have more than two plugs? Power seats and seat belt?

    If I can recommend, forget it. The mechanism develops play. I'd love to have simple mechanical one.
    Seats have two plugs - one for power adjustment + seat heating and second is belt pyro tensioner I believe. I can check for you on weekend.
