anyone ever install seat heaters in our trucks???

I want to get heated seats in my truck but I don't know what company is reputable or not that sells the seat heaters. Anyone ever install them? if so what company was it and how do you like em? I know ebay has some for like $79 per seat but I don't know if I trust ebay. I wouldn't want my rig lighting on fire because of some crappy seat warmers

I would buy factory heated seats and use the factory wiring harness, I don't like the idea of splicing in this type of accessory, but that's me.

Not in my truck, but last year I put them in the wifes PT Cruiser.

They work VERY Well, nice and hot, she loves them!!!

I got them on eBay and they were like these: item # 290284002363

They were surprisingly easy to do (I'd never "skinned" a seat before) and all four pads run on a 15A circuit so they don't really draw that much.

Mine were bucket seats so with four bolts and a couple of plugs they were easy to remove and put on a table to work on. Bench seats would be more awkward to work with , but as I said, the cover material comes off in a pretty simple manor.
