i totally agree, but they are comfy ,and leather. two of my favorite qualities in a seat

its either get these seats, or get the wet okole seat coverss lol

both would cost around the same.

I tapped mine into the distribution box under the hood so I had consistent power to them. Then used the bolt as the ground. I ran a single wire underneath the carpet for the passenger seat. Was not a hard install at all. The biggest pain was swapping over the seat pretensioners. A lil modding had to be done.
