Can anyone recommend a source for pre-made wiring harness jumper wires?  
 

I put a set of GMT 800 front seats in my 2009 Yukon because I find the 2007-14 GMT 900 seats uncomfortable.  The seats bolt right up.  Both pairs of seats are fully powered.  
 

To reposition the 800 seats I temporarily power them by using cannibalized multimeter wires to jump the male side of the seat harness to the female side.  I'd like to leave them permanently powered using a m/f jumper wire.   Audrino jumper wires are plentiful but too small.  Can anyone recommend a source for appropriately-sized connectors?  Worst case scenario, I can probably build a set but looking for something prebuilt if available.  
 

I'm only trying to power the tracks, no need for heaters, lumbar, etc.

I usually get them from Amazon. Do a search for jumper wires unless you are looking for something for the wife.

I also have one of these from amazon that is super helpful. 30' long and on a reel so you only pull off as much as you need to test things. Nice to have on a boat, RV, or bus.

How about the wiring harness from a 2009?

Both of those are helpful but I would need one end to be a pin. An alligator clip is ok for the other.  I do appreciate the suggestion, Toyman.

This service kit worked great.  I've got both seats jumpered with power. Now have full range of motion including lumbar.

T-pins are really useful for probing sockets and the backside of connectors.  Wouldn't want to put a lot of power through them, but for basic continuity checking they can be extremely useful.  From these use aligator clips to get power to your test wire.
