    I suspect it is 1 or 2, but I have my new truck sitting in Texas with a burnt out motor in the DS. It, of course, is all the way forward. A drive in a seat like that when you are my size (6'4", 240lbs) is not something I can entertain.

    I need to swap it out in advance and/or fly in with the part and do the work before I leave.

    Anyone know how long this would take and/or have a source for a CHEAP replacement? :)

    Doesn't sound too bad...sucks though! :)

    And hey! I am allowed to solicit for cheap parts in the guise of a non-searcher anytime I want! :)

    are you picking it up from Austin? If you need a place to do the swap and/or some help doing it there's a pretty good group of 80 owners in Austin that I'm sure would be glad to help.

    Don't know if these motors are interchangable (or the seats) but.
    I have a set of IS300 seats that I would be willing to part out.
    I bought them to put in my 4Runner 2years ago.

    its a 1-2 bananna job 2 take the seat and the motor out. U can then move the seat 2 whatever position u want and put it back togther. Often the cogs in the motor wear down (they are plastic :)
