Talking Heating Element for front seat

Hey guys I have a 2000 Crew cab dually with leather and I would like to add a heating element to the drivers side. I have a local trim shop that is going to re spring the seat (its sagging a little). I want to buy whatever I need to make this work and do it all at the same time. Truck has never had heated seats. I have heard that after market seat heaters are better than the ford products. Anyone have any experience with this? Would like a parts list and suggestions.

I have these in mine and i like them, they have dual settings too. I have no experience with factory heated seats so nothing to compare to but my arse gets hot with these so id say they work good

I have aftermarket seat heaters that I put in my truck. Took me an afternoon to pull out my seats and slide the elements behind the covers. then I just needed to run a wire for power to them. and mine are also a hi/low heat so I just drilled a small hole at the front of my seat trim plastic and threw the flip switch through there.
