$200/each.What did those run ya? And how much of a difference in comfort? Good looking with the black leather and red stitching for sure!

The bottom are a little bit higher and much comfortable that the FJ seats.
The power seat adjustments are a plus. I'm missing the arm rest.
My driver's seat turned into a rather more epic project than intended after I managed to fry the ECU board built into the seat. So I'm gradually building a replacement using an Arduino, some h-bridges and 3D printed housings. So be careful not to fry the ECU to start withI just purchased a driver seat from a 2013 gx460. Still looking for a good deal on the passenger seat. Some of these recyclers are crazy: $400 for the seat, then want $200 for the headrest +shipping!
Any of you guys that have done this swap before care to share any more info on how the wiring them up went? At minimum I need power to the adjustment setup and would love to get heat and ventilation working.
Any tips on getting these connected?
Sorry to hear about frying the ECU. I'd definitely like to avoid that.My driver's seat turned into a rather more epic project than intended after I managed to fry the ECU board built into the seat.

Amongst all that I did note down some information about the connector to the seat. No idea if the connector or pin assignments are the same across different Lexus model years:

Take all this with a grain of salt, it being what I've pieced together from various Toyota docs. Might all be fiction...Sorry to hear about frying the ECU. I'd definitely like to avoid that.
Thanks for the sheet outlining the pins. To get power adjustments working, am I understanding correctly that just using pin 1 for 12v and pin 5 for ground should be all that's needed?
What about seatbelt and airbag connectors? I don't have the seats yet and was kind of confused by the various posts here. Are they the same from the FJ to the GX?
Really appreciate you took the time to respond. I'm surprised more that have completed this swap never returned to share details of the wiring in the past couple years.
The driver side seat swap went really well. Thanks to some helpful information from others the whole process, including cleaning the floor, only took about an hour.
Just have power for the seat adjustments right now, climate control will come later. Had to run a power and ground wire, took off the seatbelt and wiring from the FJ seat and transplanted on to the gx460 seat. Airbag plugs right in.
I'll post more install details later, but man can I say the comfort level is night and day difference!
The passenger seat gets delivered tomorrow.

Excellent work! You did it the right way: planning it out and building a harness. I only kinda-sorta went that way without stopping to fully plan, which ended up taking longer and still isn't finished.Finished the wiring and install tonight. Have full functions of power adjustment, heating and ventilation, and switch illumination working!
