Can I install power seats in my truck?

I have a 2000 GMC Sonoma Ext cab, I have the regular cloth seats, I was wondering if I can get power leather seats out of any Envoy or Jimmy and can I hook up the wiring easy?, will the seats fit the old mounting points?
Thanks

Re: Can I install power seats in my truck?

it is extremely easy to wire up, run a 12 volt off the battery, and run a ground... i f u don't want to do it like that then if u have an amp hooked up u can hook the hot wire from the seat (usually orange) to ur power on ur amp, and the ground to the ground on the amp

power & ground is all you need


I would never tap off my amp for any thing....
that is just asking for a short & to burn up the
amp &/or seat....
