You were quoted $3,600 for 2-door?

Try calling Katzkin directly and asking for local installers. Sounds like who you talked to may just have a higher installation price than I had. Akins/Willies basically just charged me $200 for install and the seating was just a pass through with no markup from Katzkin price.
Also, If you get signed up with Katzkins they send out sale info all the time. They also give a military discount.

I did the same. Just picked up today. Two door - hot and cooled $2900 and included tax. Cooled seats feel great today in 90 degree weather!!

Here’s my wife’s OBX with Katzkin’s to match the navy pier interior. It’s a late March build, no rear armrest.

I think this looks phenomenal, will definitely pursue when I get mine in the next couple of weeks. Specifically appreciate the cooling effectiveness comment

Wonder if OP did all four seats (heating/cooling) for that $3200 number. Hope so, I intend to do that

Along with an inexpensive Kicker Key200.4 upgrade discussed on these forums, feeling really good about the BaseQuatch choice
I was thinking the exact same thing when I ordered my Basesquatch. Ford didn't make a good stereo or all black interior. The gray and black on the base is a perfect platform for my build.

One thing I wish my WT had was cooling seats, but not enough to spend 3k to cool my rear. They do look nice though.
Ford uses a thermo-electric gizmo.... basically magic... but really running a charge through metallic plates that produce cold or hot. There is a fan. I had an MKZ when they were new and my junk was never happier. My much newer MKS seems to be lacking the same cold. The problem is that they are NOT - and these won't be either - AC seats. They just blow the air from under the seat. If the car is warm and the air is warm you're limited to how cold they can get. The BEST thing to do is close all the windows, turn on the AC - especially into the floor - and they seem to work much better. I swore that is ONE option I would never, ever, go without. But with a convertible.... I'll make the sacrifice.

Help me understand this; my taint (& wife’s) can now be cooled with this Katzkin kit? Bought the leather interior for the electric seats, but for $3k, I’d be all in to change (specially with the Wildtrack interior colors). I made the choice of leather over cloth for the electric adjustability….bad back issues over swamp ass made more sense at time of ordering.
That's what I'm over here wondering about. I asked my dealer, and my dealer said (drink!) that there was no amount of money I could throw their way to get ventilated seats. Now all I gotta do is find a Katzkin installer near me??

Builds prior to February ‘22 did not include the rear center arm rest with the factory cloth option.You only got it if you got factory leather. My understanding is that for all build weeks starting in February, Ford started including that arm rest with all interiors. I have a January build, so I just missed the cut.

However, a nice perk I forgot to mention is that the Katzkin kits put a real seat pocket on the back of the front seats. So you could store a capped drink in those pockets.
great post on the seats. Just one clarification: March 4door build with vinyl here - no rear armrest/cup holders.

I am thinking to get Katzkin Leather and Heated seats by Winter this year. Can you show me where the Heated and Cooled Switches are set up? Is that on the Dash below the Air con Controls? A pic would be great.

Looking good buddy.

Which "wings" color did you choose, and how closely does it match the desert tan in your base?

I'm trying to match with my WT, and go with a coffee colored primary color.

Some high res photos of your install would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Looks like in Post 19 OP said the following

" They are controlled independently. Each of the front seats has its own switch installed on the door side of the seat. "

So I'm guessing about where one might expect electric seat controls to be located.

As I said, talked directly with Katzkin several times. Very helpful gal who gave me her direct cell and email.
Looked up closest installer, and said she coordinates everything. Even sent out several samples. If you search Katzkin/Bronco you’ll see nobody paid the same price.

I was a early March build and my MGV interior doesn't have the cup holders so I guess we MGV folk just got the short end of the stick. Though I suppose we're not missing much because the cupholders are not all that great.
