heated seats?

ive got a stock interior 97 TJ. I work 12 hour days in a steel foundry, on an average day I lift 18,000 lbs. consequently my back is killing me at the end of the day. it almost saddens me to climb in my jeep to drive home at the end of the day sometimes, because lets face it jeeps are not known for their ride quality. well my wifes new car (which I got to drive in today) has heated seats. this was the most relaxing ride home ive ever had. my question. does anyone know if they make aftermarket seat heaters, or heated seats that I could put into my beloved jeep?

Yep, and they're not that expensive. I've been thinking about getting them for my wife...

Check out Corbeau Seat Heater for All Jeep Vehicles for one example. "Corbeau Seat Heaters can be installed in your Corbeau Seats or your factory seats and the installation is really quite simple."

There are others out there too.

Are you sure its the seats or really the cadillac ride quality of the car that you are not used to in the drive home?

Universal seat heater kit:
Universal 11" x 19" Carbon Fiber Heating Element Heated Seat Heater Kit

Universal lumbar support cushion (is compatible with seat heater):
Universal Seat Lumbar Support

The ultimate is the internal heated massage system:
Car Seat Massage & Heating System Kit (Not a Cushion)

That last kit should be installed by a professional, the first two you can do yourself, but you will need a special tool called "hog ring pliers" and some hog rings (they re-attach the upholstery to the seat frame).

Some nice soft shocks and the seat heater should help. Some aftermarket seats come with a heater already in them, or you can just get the one like listed above where you put it into the stock seat. An aftermarket seat with heater may offer better support for your back, so thats a nice option if you are looking for better support as well.
