Here is a link to the corbeau seat heaters. I like the idea that you can cut them to fit any seat, they have 2 temperature settings, and they come with the wiring harnesses.

Does anybody know how many amps they draw at full power? I will probably be installing a remote fuse block to power these. I have it already and have been too lazy to put it in. THis will involve some new power cables off the battery and a circuit breaker and stuff. It might end up being its own thread.

I agree that with the top on and the full doors it's no problem. The problem comes when I'm leaving San Jose at 5 in the morning to meet everyone in Jackson and I choose to run a bikini top and no doors. The heater isn't really effective on the highway with no doors.

It's not just me. Sometimes I have passengers who are not used to the idea of no doors on the freeway.

LOL, I was referring to people who don't own Jeeps and would never think of not having doors.

I just want the seat heaters, not the seats. That thread doesn't talk about the seat heaters at all. Did you look at my link?

Update: the seat heater is installed (without a relay, so temporary install) on the driver's seat. I drove around today with it and it's awesome. The back heats up really quickly, and the bottom is pretty warm too. I need to tap the number 18 fuse in the fuse panel so I can get a key on source for my relay, but it will wait a little while. The install was easy. The bottom is a little big for the TJ seat, but I was able to make it fit without much cutting. The back fit perfectly. Removing the seat was easy. Disassembling it was not hard, but it was a pain to reapply the fabric through the "pig clips". There are "pig clips" or rings and they interact with steel rods that thread the fabric on. It's actually a pretty nifty system.

I will probably buy the passenger side sometime next year.

I wanted to test it on myself first to make sure it was safe.
