Smile I wish I had a heated steering wheel

I love the fact that my GC2012 has a remote starter. Especially now that it's getting cold outside, I use the remote start every day.

I wish I had bought the model with heated steering wheel.

Is this something I can add on?

Re: I wish I had a heated steering wheel

I am selling my overland heated wheel on eBay for a good price!

I think you may need a module of some kind as well if yours did not come equipped with the heated wheel. There is a thread somewhere on JG that has more info.

Re: I wish I had a heated steering wheel

I got rid of all the woodgrain in the interior so I installed a black steering wheel from a limited.

I looked into this as well and there are differences in the clock spring which was an expensive part to buy, on top of the wheel, harness, and switch. It doesn't seem to be cheap or easy to do.

I really wish I had opted for the lux package on my Limited. My wife has a 328 with the heated wheel and it is a VERY nice feature. Especially when it is cold but not quite cold enough for gloves.

Here is the other thread: http://www.jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=22966

Re: I wish I had a heated steering wheel

Just turn the heat on in the car, it not like your on a motorcycle where heated grips are really nice. haha

or just live in AZ like I do now, no heated wheel needed here.

Another vote for a great idea!
I'm not a fan of the heated seats, and can only stand for them to be on for a minute or two, but that heated wheel? - LOVE IT!!!

Re: I wish I had a heated steering wheel

The heated steering wheel was an option that I thought was a waste of money.... until I started using it. Wow! It is now perhaps my favorite.

In fact the one option I really wanted is now the one I wish I didn't have.... Quadralift.

I'd love to get rid of my wood grain as well. Did you find another all leather heated steering?
