Our 2005 fat-butt truck is an XL model. I got some power seats for it off of ebay. We're putting them in now, but I need to figure out how to wire 'em up. I assumed there'd be a plug already there under the mat to plug the seats into but there's not. The only plug is the one for the seatbelt. So what do I need to do to wire these suckers in? They sent me the plug ends with the seats so I'm assuming I just need to splice it in somewhere, but There's no wires running anywhere by the seats that match the thickness or colors of the ones on the plug.

Here's some pics of the plug:

Yeah, mine is an XL. We got it figured out. Basically my stock plug is the same as the one that came with the seats. It's just missing the big green power wire for the seat so we ran one off the fuse box from the power seat tab. I'm surprised the wiring's not all there though. You'd think it would be there, just not used.

Did you just do the driver's side? Or both front seats?

Are you not going to use the passenger side? Would it be able to be used on the driver's side?

Not sure what you mean. I'm replacing my XL bench seat with the 2 captain's chairs.

I wouldnt think so, the controls would be on the inside next to the console.... and if it has arm rests..... well you know

Oh gotcha, nevermind

There's a whole ton of 'em on Ebay right now though. I grabbed these to get rid of the uncomfortable XL bench and happened to see some factory black cloth seats on there. They look really nice in there. :D
