|I put 2008 Lincoln navigator seats in my 97 F350 crew cab....they are heated and cooled.
It took a bit of fabrication, basically I made new metal feet for the 2008 tracks that line up to the 1997 holes in the floor. I chopped up the 2008 tracks to lower them and welded some box steel and strap steel to make the feet, then painted the whole apparatus. Then I sat in it decided it was too tall and did it all again.
Next I bought a 2008 navigator wiring book and figured out the heater/cooler wiring in my living room. 2008 Lincoln there are 3 computers mounted under the drivers seat, there are about 42 wires on each seat not being used so I stripped all of that out.
Now with a three pole switch for each seat I can have heated or cooled air. It was a pretty big project as far as seat swaps are concerned and I am still not done (we sold our house and moved right when I was doing the swap)
When you go to ebay to buy leather seats for a superduty, you will pay big $$$ just for the word superduty or F150...type in Lincoln and the prices fall like a stone.
Now I have powered black leather buckets in pristine condition in my 97 and 2008 technology for a fraction of the cost of "king ranch" or whatever Superduty leather buckets
When there is a will there is a way!!
