Question Add Heated Seat

Hey guys I have a 2000 F350 with leather. Getting ready to redo the drivers seat with new cover and springs. Would love to add a heated drivers seat. Any suggestions as to where to begin? Seens some units on line just don't know how good they are. Thanks

the OEM switch is in the side of the seat on My 06( not sure on yours?) and a terrible location

I would do a dash switch

For a truly terrible firearm experience I suggest Taurus

I bought an eBay kit (it was a "carbon" element kit) and installed it in my wife's car when we first bought it, 4 yrs ago. She uses it constantly, never had a problem with it!

It was kinda fun to do, skin the seats and all, and a pretty easy installation. Cost very little, well worth the money IMHO

I just installed a kit from this company (click here) in my mothers ford freestyle, the car didn't have any OEM harness to tie into. Kit comes with everything you need, harness, switch, pads. Install was pretty easy, and the seats work great, heat up fast. I wouldn't bother with the $20 install kit, waste of money, just get some small zip ties separately. About $100 a seat, i would imagine its cheaper than OEM
