Power Seat Question

I currently have a 2009 XLT equipped 350. It came with cloth manual seats, which I admit are nice, but I have a 2 year old and another kiddo on the way and would like to switch to leather for durability/staining reasons.

Are the harnesses under the seat carpet ???

I don't know that I care a ton about HEATED seats, but I would possibly switch to power depending on what comes available..

Thanks

ERIC

Idk about the seats... My e99 supposedly has the harness for an overhead lariat console, and it's an XLT. It seems though as time progressed ford changed things like that for expense reasons. For instance in 99.5 (or in a later year, can't remember) ford removed the overhead wiring harness on XLT and below models.

Thanks - it's funny because I thought this would be an EASILY answered question but no-one seems to know. Search has absolutely nothing on it!

When i swapped in my power seats in my 2000 the plug that detects if your seatbelt is on or not doubled as the power for the seats but the passenger side didnt have one because it doesnt have that feature. honestly there are so many different configurations of trucks that the best way to find out if you have it or not is to just look. take out the seats and pull the entry sills off and pull the carpet up and look

You can use some extra-ordinary seats like Velo, Cobra, Sabelt, Monza etc. They are specially designed seats and they can also be used for racing purposes i.e for heavy use. There are special instruments that are integrated with them, which are not present with the common one.

Idk about the factory harness but what a lot of people do in my area is install Katzkin leather. Good quality and fairly reasonable price

Never got an answer but I realized I actually prefer the manual - I never move them unless I am vacuuming and then I like to just aside it back as far as possible as quick as possible and the manuals are best for that!!!
