    Hooked mine up today, took just about an hour. I already have seat covers. They work great! Under the dash was a fuse panel with fuse marked "heated seats" 20a fuse, used an add on fuse tap ran the power wires to there and ground to under driver kick panel.

    You can get seat heaters with Katzkin leather seat covers. I haven't owned them myself, but I have had seat time in a few vehicles that did, and they are pretty good. You might be able to buy the heaters if you already got the leather.

    I’m using these, they have gaps for the rod/hog rings holding your seat down. You don’t need the new hog rings provided, zip ties work well and fit inside the groove, you don’t feel either anyway.

    I put the switches on either side of the center console near the front and tapped the fuse box for power. The tap that comes with these are usually just a cheap hook.

    2 panels each seat, so you need to buy two.

    Although they don’t have open sections for connecting the rods at the seams, note Berdine’s example has more coverage higher up the back and toward the knees, that might mean more to you.

    I have seen some postings regarding after market seat heaters being installed on cloth seats. Is that ok? how does the fabric hold up?
