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.
True. It's pretty wild to think about. And I'm only 3 generations out from people living in homestead shacks with dirt floors and no plumbing (Montana). Trippy.

Never use it definitely not worth $1000 turn the heater on and the jeep's plenty warm in a few minutes.

I have the cold weather group on my jlur. It was near freezing when I left the house this morning here in Oklahoma. The heated seats and steering wheel came on automatically when I started up. Made the morning drive even more enjoyable. The way I see it I may be able to drive with the doors and top off even when it’s a bit cooler out with heated.

I park in the garage at home. I have the remote start too but I have yet to use it but I’m sure I will soon with winter around the corner.

As fall and winter settle into Kansas, I use them just about everyday. Yesterday the temperature dropped to 35 degrees. I opened the Sky One-Touch Power Top and turned up the main heater, steering wheel heater, the seat warmer and the audio. I kept the windows up.
My face was cold, and I stayed pretty warm, but the blast of fresh air was awesome.
A lot of aircraft are built here in Wichita, so we have a lot of air traffic. My drive to work takes me just past the edge of the runway. I always look forward to occasional crossing of plane directly overhead.
I probably would not drop the top, if I didn't have the seat and steering wheel heaters.

Does anyone know why the jeeps temp probe would be near the engine, if that’s where it is. When I pull in my none heated garage on a 30 degree day, my heated seats won’t come on because the car reads 50. Apparently the engine heat is warming it up before it shuts down. The Jeep thinks it’s warm out every time.

Please don't use your remote start with your Jeep if it is parked in attached garage. The CO (carbon monoxide) from the exhaust can kill you and your family if it seeps in to your house from a closed garage.

Thanks for the warning. But I open the big door before I start it. Exhaust shoots out the door.

100% get it! Now that it's getting cooler out, I used them everyday. I don't mind the cold, but it's great. Most of the time, I don't even turn on the heat, I'll just turn on the heated seats and I'm good. I can't recommend them enough.

I've had heated seats in my vehicles since 2001. Back then, I thought it was stupid and would never use them, especially in the mild winters of Georgia. Boy was I wrong.
In 2013, I got heatedcsterringbwheel and cooled seats the first time. The heated wheel is great. The cooled seats, meh. They are alright but not necessarily a must have. I notice they hardly work until the car is cooled off and/or the windows are down. In my Jeep where I have the top off and doors off as much as possible, I imagine they'd be really ineffective.

The heated seats and wheel were a must have in my Jeep.

Having grown up in the midwest - I would have loved cars that had this. I'm now in NC and have fully lost my cold skin and I LOVE this option (turn it on whenever it drops below 50 - what a wuss I've become!)

I went for the heated seats and steering wheel over the tow package! My wife and I love that heated steering wheel and we are in Texas.

I love it. The heated seats are great and the wife has her own controls on her side which is awesome as well. Plus it keeps her happy when I have the top open below 70 degrees.

I will definitely not use the remote start while parked in garage. That is not necessary. I am not always parked inside (Work, store, etc...) Thanks for the advice though!
