    My wife takes my truck to her work since it's a lot closer to home. We work completely different schedules. I will try to get some pics for you when I can do it in the daylight. It's a simple setup. Just a positive fused wire into the cab from the battery connected to a fuse box I mounted under the seat with velcro. Then you just run your power from there to anything that requires constant 12v power like the power seat adjust or in case my power fold mirrors. This is a picture of a couple of different fuse boxes on ebay. It's actually extremely simple to I install. I will shoot some pics as soon as I have my truck in the daylight if you want.

    OK jus a quick update on the heated and cooled seats and wheel. I just got it all finished up and it works! Everything functions exactly as it should! The first thing I want to mention is I didn't figure this out 00/RT did. I only followed his lead throughout the instalation. Before he joined our forum we were all under the assumption that this mod was impossible for the trucks that did not have the wiring. We were also told that it wouldn't work without the correct sales codes added......That was all wrong. I bought the tool from Auto ingenuity so I was able to add the correct codes for the controls to come up on my RA4 but the seats worked perfect without installing any codes. I was able to turn them on and of with the hard keys. I am going to try to do a writeup on this as soon as I get everything buttoned up. I installed my own relay because I didn't want to wait for my apt. Now that it is all done I don't believe this will be to hard to duplicate if someone wants to give it a shot. Thanks again to 00/RT and all the others who sent me schematics. I am posting a coup of picture and will do the writeup on it later.

    You shouldn't have told anybody yet, Rick. You're gonna drive up the price on the seats before I get a set.

    Great news! Glad you guys were able to figure it out. I've been putting it off, but now I need to order my pins and such.

    I added my heated cloth seats to my bighorn, just waiting on the switch. Are you saying I don't need to get a sales code added?
