Hi everyone. I'm new here and looking to buy my first Jeep! I found one that has everything I want... initially. Then I started thinking about the heated steering wheel and seats. Living in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania we have an awesome fall and will get our share of winter but it's not outrageous like some places. The Jeep I'm looking at already has the remote start so that's not an issue. My question is: If you have the cold weather package with the heated steering wheel and seats, how often do you use it and are you glad you got it? Those of you who don't have it, do you wish you did?
Thanks everyone! I'm looking forward to learning about what add ons I should or shouldn't get!

Well you really kicked off a hot topic with this one. :giggle:

Seriously though. I absolutely love them. When I was shopping, I found a Mojito Sahara on the dealer lot with everything I wanted EXCEPT cold weather group. I almost bought it because I wanted the green, but my wife was smart enough to warn me that I'd regret not getting the heated seats.
I ended up ordering my JL. With my first pick of color (Mojito) unavailable I ordered in my #2 pick of color with the cold weather group. I'm here to tell you, they were worth giving up the color for. I use them all the time. Granted, I'm a freeze baby, and was wearing a hoodie yesterday, but even if you don't use them as early in the season as I do, they're absolutely a must have item.

....Also, Jeeps are known for their heat generation, albeit heater or heated seats. Both come on fast and strong. Out your way you will appreciate feeling that heat before ya get to the end of your block.
That's no joke. The heater pumps it out extremely fast in these things. I had no idea it was a "jeep thing".

I have it and live in the Phoenix Arizona area. Go figure! But I'm sure I'll use it in Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon this winter.

The cold weather group was a must have for my current JL. All my previous Jeeps 88YJ, 97TJ, 05TJ were bare bones no extras and manual. The cold is more difficult to handle as I get older, so I ordered an automatic to get the remote start, heated seats and steering wheel. It was really nice to have them last winter, but I do miss a manual transmission.

I don't have it on mine, as I opted for cloth on purpose. I'm in Phoenix, Arizona, so that plays into the decision on my end.

If i were to get leather, i'd need to make sure it has heating and cooling, which on the wrangler, the cooling option is not there. So i just got cloth instead to not have to worry about hot leather in the AZ heat. On my wife's Grand Cherokee, we have heated and cool/ventilated seats, and use both, even in AZ (the heated seats we only use maybe 3 months of the year though)

Having said that, if i were anywhere that it got cold, then i for sure would want the heated steering wheel and seats. Why not? If it's available and affordable for you, get it! You don't want to regret it later, which is likely the case. If you get it, i highly doubt you'll regret getting it later.

Enjoy the Jeep!!

First time I climbed into my Jeep when it was 28 degrees out, I grabbed that heated steering wheel and pulled myself into that nice warm seat and I knew it was going to be a good day!

I use my heated seats in the summer, with AC blasting. Nothing like heat on your back on the way home from work. On a cold day, this is even better. Get it, you won't be disappointed.

@Pkillian welcome (almost, I guess) to the Jeep family! I live just north of York! When you finally get your Jeep, PM me if you have any questions about places to go off-roading or Jeep clubs to join. I just got my first Jeep last year. That said, I’ve had heated seats in my last three vehicles, and heated steering wheel in the last 2 (total of about 11 years). I wouldn’t ever consider a vehicle that didn’t have either.
I live outside of Philly..Where else can I go offroading besides Aoaa and Raush that's not too much of a haul like aoaa?.
I am in Philadelphia and have the cold weather package. Love it!

Imagine yourself first good sunny day in the spring. It’s supposed to warm. So off comes the doors & top and you strike out for an amazing day on the trails. And it is Amazing! So much in fact it’s late when you start heading back. Except now the sun is setting and that huge ball of heat is going away and you have another 30 minutes down the highway at 70mph to get to the house. You look over and your wife is shivering and gives you that “fuck you asshole” look. You smile and hit the heater to max and turn on her heated seat. Soon that look goes away.

It may be an expense when getting your Jeep. But a happy wife is priceless.

This is my first vehicle and Jeep with the cold weather package. My husband has had it in his Ram 2500 and said I'll love it, but so far when it's come on I shut them off. What I really wanted was the heated mirrors that are in the package. Maybe I'll use them cause some mornings in NH are really cold but I doubt it.

Great point. It's not really an option you'll regret getting, but absolutely one you may regret not getting..

Yes, we are spoiled aren't we. Not too long ago we didn't have cell phones, gps, or internet (among many other things like heated seats). I can't even imagine the things our grandchildren will have to make their lives easier or more comfortable.
