Almost everything you are looking for will fit from a Durango, 98 - 00 I think. Obviously not the rear seat. Dash and front seats should be identical. The door panels will be different, as the Durango front doors are smaller than the extended cab Dakotas. The Durango may have been offered with a different center console and some other details like leather.

If you go to the boneyard to pull seats -- bring an impact and a socket set with a big breaker bar. Those back bolts are in TIGHT, with threadlocker, and you will need leverage. I just went thru this. Get the rears a few turns loose and hit them with some PB Blaster. Let it soak and then go after it with the impact. You'll swear you're going to snap them off... and that's probably OK since it's a junkyard truck.

Try checking the 1998-99 durango elite. I pulled some parts off the rear a-c system and it had heated leather seats.

The 1998-99 Durango elite has heated leather seats. I have swapped many interior parts from older model Durango's for my 2002. But everything changed in 2003 as far as control consoles speed sensors ABS sensors
