Heating & Cooling is a fairly complex subject, with many companies having different ways they handle it. The gold-standard heating and cooling system is produced for OEMs by a company called GenTherm. These units are truly heated and cooled - not just ventilated. A peltier powered cooling system actively cools the air that passes into the seat.  For GenTherm powered systems, we offer in-house setup of heating and cooling functions. The most popular of these GenTherm powered seats is the 2011 - 2016 Ford Super Duty Lariat and King Ranch. We offer a 2-Wire hookup service on any GenTherm powered seat we...

The Solution:  For this project we used a set of very dark pewter leather seats from a non-HD...

Why Not Get An OEM One? A customer contacted us asking us to source a jumpseat for a King Ranch interior. Unfortunately, Ford never offered this option. The truck always came with a console.  What About Aftermarket? While some aftermarket manufacturers offer knock-off jumpseats made with "similar" leather, every piece of this leather is genuine King Ranch leather taken from ultra-low mileage OEM Seats so it really is a 100% match. Even the saddle leather leanback insert with King Ranch emboss was used on the arm rest. How Much & How Long Does It Take?  Approximate Project Cost: $1600+ Approximate...
