Keeping Warm

I was looking in one of my 4x4 mags and came across seat warmers for my 09 wrangler. I never thought about this until i moved to upstate new york where it can get cold. Also, i like to drive with the top down even when it is chilly outside, and i figure seat warmers will just help that experience. If anybody has any input on if they are worth the 200 bux to buy, or on how difficult they are to install yourself, it be greatly appreciated. Mcdonalds is a place to rock.

I don't have seat warmers but was a long-distance motorcycle rider for 20 years.
I ran 1500 miles in 24 hours once in temperatures that were in the mid 30s at night to mid 40s in the day.
Along with heated handgrips, all I used was my Aerostich Kanetsu vest.
Keep your core warm and you stay warm. Simple install; put it on, plug it in.

Hey man- where in NY are you?
The heaters certainly work- I've added them to a couple JK's- a bit of a PITA, but certainly not that bad. Just pick a decent spot for the switches, and you're on your way- Mark W.

I've lived in WNY all my life, and have been driving a Wrangler for 5 years. Sure seat warmers might be nice, but not really needed in my opinion.

Wranglers heat up fast. You should be fine. Save that 200 bucks and invest in something else!
