People have swapped the seats before, I don't think it's much hassle. Assuming you have the plugs for the heating system it would be easy to wire otherwise you need to wire it in yourself with a power source.
For the ac no you would need to plumb ac ports up to and into your seat which would be extremely hard

I may be wrong, I have looked for ducts/ports under my seats, and there are none.

I believe it is just circulating air. They are still awesome! Used them today in the heat wave we are having in Utah. It got above 70...

Maybe it is? I could be very wrong.
Some vehicles use the actual hvac cold air. It's just hard to tell which do!

Re: Can I add 2012 AC/Heated seats to a 2004 Excursion

I realize this is for a ford forum. Don't hate. But my dad has a 2012 Denali dmax. And the seats have built in ac units. Its all a self contained unit. Yes I realize ford and gmc r different. Just saying. They do make seats with built in ac units

I am pretty sure the seats are self contained with the cooling and heating units. What I'm trying to figure out is if they can just be hooked up to power and ground with a switch or do they need to be run through a PCM that would only be in a 2012-2013 250 and not in my vehicle?

I am going to make you jealous. The AC seats come on automatically when you remote start your truck, when the temperature is over a certain point (70 or 80* F).

Just looks like a blower motor 2011 FORD F-350 SUPER DUTY Parts - part 18 is a duct...

If it is just the heating coils and a blower motor, I would think you would be able to hard wire it your self. I know these have to be connected to the computer somehow, becuase they turn on and off automatically. When you remote start your truck, ect...
