some pics of my power seat conversion in my 2001 f350 XL
Seats are 10 way power leather out of a 2009 F150 Platinum
I custom made the brackets
Wiring was a little complicated on the drivers side because I had to bypass the driver seat module (DSM). If the power option has memory function it must run through the DSM. All of the driver seat power options had memory function except the power lumbar. If the DSM doesnt receive communication from the trucks network it wont allow power to go to any of the power seat motors which is why I bypassed it no network to hook into the dsm.
Bypassing the DSM resulted in the loss of the seats memory functions, but I didnt need it anyways. im sure there is a way to hook it up without the DSM but i havent figured it out yet. So essentially what I ended up doing was wiring them just like the passenger seats, the motors wired straight to the switches and NO DSM box.
The passenger seat is also 10 way power but has no memory function therefore no DSM box. So all i had to do was pull the power and ground wires out of the harness and everything worked just fine.
Both seats are fused at 20 amps

Here is the DSM bypass wiring (DRIVER SIDE)
NOTE:the lumbar is not on here because it had no memory function and was never hooked into the DSM. So the wiring didnt need to be changed it was already wired switch to motor.
Custom bracket Progress pics:
I used 1/4" flat bar and grade 8, 1/2" hardware. I also re-used some of the existing bolts from the old seats. I used a torch to bend the flat bar.
Each piece of flat bar is 21" long by 3" or 3.5" wide by 1/4" thick
The bend for the floor contour is 4" back from the front of the flat bar
Spacer to level the mounting surface front to rear
I welded the bolts that are used to mount the seat to the backside of the flat bar for easy tightening
So if you have a Stock bench seat, there is a hole with a rubber plug in it hidden under the floor mat. The hole has a thick spacer welded on the underside of the cab, It has no threads in it so I tapped it with a 1/2 nc. and used that hole to hold the flat bar down to the floor.
Directly behind this hole towards the back of the cab there are two factory existing tapped holes, where the seat belt buckle and center seat lap belt were originally mounted to the floor separately. I used the hole closest to the drivers door to hold the flat bar to the floor and I used the other adjacent hole to mount the drivers seat belt buckle and the center seat belt strap together (instead of separate like it originally was).
This second factory threaded hole seen below is for the drivers seat belt buckle and center lap belt to be mounted to the floor.
