Peak 11" x 11" Dual Pad Universal Carbon Fiber Seat Heater Kit

I've heard good stuff about this kit, I have no first hand knowledge though.

I don't know how you all are doing these, but I just came accross an option from Wet Okole seat covers. You can add the seat wamer option to any of their cover. $68.00 option. Ford F250 Seat Covers - Front - Wet Okole Hawaii

I installed the seat heater kits out of JEG's in my 05'. It is a complete kit for $80 ea.

I just ran one power wire to the seats-drilled one hole per seat(for the switch)- and removed the seat covers and installed the elements.
