    Story starts that my father is Afghanistan and my Mon is pregnant and having medical issues so I moved back home to help my mom while my dad is gone in exchange for free rent and food. (Amazing right?!) Well I've been doing as much as I can to pitch in and help around the house.... NOW THE FUN STUFF! So my dad decided to buy me leather s197 seats, new wheels and tires, front and rear suspension AND all new tools and impacts. I'm ****ing stoked. But my now here is the issue lol they are electrical seats... can I just put manual rails on them? And should I dye them black to match my interior or keep them red?

    I'm 22 and feel like I did in the third grade for getting a new bike lol

    Why not keep them power? Or are you gutting the power stuff out to shed weight?

    Can't be that hard to send 12v to the seat base.

    the rails will swap no matter powered or not. The only problem might be if you put the passenger side rail on the drivers side the handle to move them will be on the other side.
