    I've searched and see a few people mentioning an aftermarket kit on eBay but was wondering if anyone had a specific kit they liked. It's for a 2012 Tundra DC with cloth seats. Are they all factory wired for heaters and are you able to tie into that?
    Thanks!

    I have some in stock. We've used theese since 2010 and have not had any issues. Comfort Heat: Carbon Fiber Seat Heater (250-1870)

    You can use code ih8mud on our site to save a little more $$.

    We install these under the cloth seats, when using Katzkin's or when using Clazzio seat covers and I have them in my personal Tundra as well.

    Are there install instructions available to install under stock, cloth seats? Difficult? Instructions include wiring? If not, any tips?

    Question: In my 100 series my passenger seat heater pad is missing, Im guessing when they re-covered they just didnt replace it, maybe it was no good. The female end of the plug is there and sticks out from under the seat, If i had a new element I could just plug in and go, new online that element is almost 400, stupid. My question is I wonder if I could use your element on my passenger side, do you know if the plug in on the end of that element is compatible with a 2003 LC. Thanks, Casey

    Here is a picture of the plug I believe the stock seat heater is supposed to plug into. I would be nice if your pad is plug and play.

    No they are not compatible, its a universal kit with its own wiring and switch.

    One other question: Could I get your pad, cut the female factory plug off from under my seat and hardwire your pad in to my factory set up, or would this not work/be stupid to do.

    Not sure, they may be different voltages, etc. I wouldn't recommend it.
