Are the switchesmounted into the seats, or the door, I mean for the power and heat. I put power leather seats from a blazer into my S10 p/u and all I had to do was run a power wire for the adjustment. I grounded everything to the seat mounting bolt, and ran a new power wire, then spliced it out into the power adjust switch, and the power lumbar switch. The moounting was the same, so I just threw them in there and wired them up. I don't know how the mounting would be between those two, since they're different models (updated), but that should be your only problem.

im not too concerned with the wiring. if i have to re qire the thing its not to big of deal for me. im more concerned about the seats fitting into the car or being hard to mount. im probably most concered with the back seats. if they are wider or narrower than the Zjs and getting them to mount.

so i went ahead and bought the seats the other day. i drove out from about an hour north of la to phoenix AZ last nite and picked um up and they look awesome fits perfect with my current brown interior. i just installed the back seats and they are about a 90% fit to the stock zj ones. the bottoms of the seats bolt right up but the pin to lock them down is in a different location so i will have to mach somethin up for that. the rear seats lean back a little more than the zj ones and im going to have to drill and tapp 4 holes to make it work. the back is in there with out these mods and looks preety good. im at my buddies house out there so ill try to get him to take some pics. havnt moved to the fronts yet but i will update on that prolly tomorrow. the only downside im seeing to the wj rear seats is that that dont pull out as easily as the sj ones did and they are kinda a pain to bolt in.
