Yes and no...not computer savy enough for a "link"...Corbeau seat heaters. Easy install. If you can wire lights you can do these. I ordered mine from Quadratec...but am sure there are many other outlets. I think mine were only $100 per side.
The big Q website is the most friendly for shopping...once you find out what you want..start shopping ebay craigs list etc.

|Yoshiltz||Are you S@#*ing me??????? They actually put heated seats in a wrangler???????? Last I heard JEEP was a division of Chrysler. Sounds more and more like they've sold out to Cadillac. Can't wait to see a new JEEP Esca-J sitting in front of Starbucks.|

|fallingrock70||Heated seats are awesome if you live in cold weather areas.|

|johnpmcelroy||The only issue you will have is fogging. Jeep windows fog and you have to baby sit them constantly. Especially very cold raining conditions. So if you are doing Vents/Floor or Floor or Vents only, your windshied or Doors windows will fog real fast. I dont know why I am responding to this considering you are in Florida.|

Also, you may want to look into adding one of teh brands of head liners. The one thing I noticed with the hardtop (and moreso with the soft) is that the heat escapes very quickly. Hotheads seem to be the liner of choice.

If we use the JKU for one of our ski vehicles will our Son be freezing in the back?
We plan on running a hard top in winter...
Oh yeah, we are in New England...not unusual to see temps below 0 deg F...
|07-05-2012 08:06 AM|
plenty warm enough up in Michigan through a few winters. First one was with my soft top. Stayed warm, no problem. I was annoyed with the noise of the soft top personally, I like being able to talk to the person next to me when travelling at 70mph on I 75.
But for heat, yeah the YJ has been great. Exceptional with the Inline 6 engine... You could run with the top off and it would still throw out enough heat to keep you warm for sure.

Are there heat/AC ducts going to the back seat area in a JKU?
|07-04-2012 09:34 PM|
It does matter a little bit if she is looking at a TJ or JK.
Mt Tj has heated seats but they are aftermarket, and it also has a halftop which means a much smaller area to heat.
However my JK is nicer than a lot of new "cars" IMO and a whole lot different than my TJ...but both are warm even hot in Northern IN

|JayHawker45||Live in Kansas, not known for mild winters, having said that, the heater in my JK has the nickname of Nuclear Reactor. It flat out cooks. Your mom should have no problems with it providing enough heat.|

|Maritimer||I have only had my Wrangler for little over a month but can tell that the heater in her will be exceptional. My old Cherokee, God bless her, would still have you a little chilly wih the heat on in August! HA!|

|desertrat04||The heater in my TJ is the better heater I have ever had in any of my previous vehicles. I drove from LC, NM to Dallas/Fort Worth in the middle of winter and I only had it on the second speed because it was making me sweat. Even my oldest son told me to turn it off.|

|2003 wrangler||I live in Ohio and I think the heater is great and really throws a lot of heat out in my tj. As soon as the thermostat hits operating temperature it will throw out an extreme amount of heat. I would go for it if I was her. Just make sure she keeps it in good conditiion because the northeast ohio winters are very rough on a vehicle thats why I need to get rid of a little rust on my tj this summer. I dont have a lot of rust but its actually in good condition for being in pa all its life but it needs to be done before the winter. She will like it in the snow storms we get up here. lol|

|Hockeygeek21||Yesterday it got around 50 at night and I cranked the heat in my YJ just to keep my feet warm and o had to turn it off because it was hurting my feet it was so hot...|
|07-01-2012 05:19 PM|
|LilYeller||Thanks for all the input folks! Thats the only thing she was worried about, keeping warm in the winter. Otherwise she was sold on it the second I took her out in the Jeep with the top in safari mode and doors off.|
|07-01-2012 03:00 PM|
|bobjenkins||Its 113 degrees today. I really wish I had the same problem as your mom!|
|07-01-2012 02:16 PM|
The heater in my TJ is the best heater I have had in any vehicle I have owned. That's a lot of vehicles because I'm old. 50. lol.
In fact, it works too good if you do not use it properly. It may crack your windshield on sub-freezing temps if you let it warm up with the defroster on hot/hi. Mine did.
It kept me toasty on the last snow run with just a Safari top, half doors, and soft uppers.
I know nothing about JK's, but I don't see why it would be any different.
|07-01-2012 02:01 PM|
I was driving around the Sierra Nevadas (California) at the end of May, with the top off (though I did have my front doors and Freedom Panels installed). We kept toasty warm, even though these were the conditions:

|lindel||Coldest day this last winter was around 17*F. Was plenty warm enough with a soft top.|

Milwaukee, WI here and my BF has a bikini top on his and during the winters that cabin (being so small) gets hot quick. I love it because I too get cuper cold. I just got my Wrangler (hardtop) so I haven't had the pleasure of testing mine out yet. I can tell you the AC rocks. That thing blows out some serious air.
I would tell your mom to get a hardtop. It will keep the heat better. I have some serious air tight seals on mine. I have to make sure I shut my doors hard enough or the door message will stay on.
