    I have never heard of being able to get leather on an SLE, so is there a possibility that it was an aftermarket kit such as Katzkin leather? It may be that on the upscale trucks that the wiring is in place for the seats, but I am not sure. Even if the wiring is in place, the computer may need to be programmed to it. However, it may be possible based on the fact that GM sells plug and play kits for the new trucks (suv's and avlanches anyway, since they all have the upscale interior and door handle bezels can be swapped). If the new trucks don't need computer programming for heated seats, I wouldn't expect an older one to need it. A guaranteed way (if you don't NEED the memory) is an aftermarket heated seat kit. They give you the heaters, the switches, the wiring, etc. and all you have to do is put them between the leather and the foam and wire them up.

    its the fact that i like oem things to work like oem, switches, components and all. ive been doing research the loaded seats have the module heating elements dual lumbar and full eletcric positioning. it may cost around $600 but its not a problem for me
