HELP, HI I just got my 2012 overland

Hello everyone I just got my 2012 Overland and I would like to switch at least the drivers front seat to an SRT seat. I'm a disabled veteran and my back is in bad shape that she looks like might be a little softer and support my back butter any ideas..... I have also noticed the transmission temperature seems to hover around 160 to 170 that seems pretty high to me is that normal other any fixes should I be concerned

I would think an SRT seat would be firmer. Not really sure.

My transmission runs at 172 normally.

Re: HELP, HI I just got my 2012 overland

THANKS,
Everyone on this forum seems so helpful and nice thank you for the information 170 seems awful hot to me I was looking online and found a Mopar transmission cooler for that vehicle maybe it is just me but I would think it running at 150 like my GMC Denali did would be better, But if that is what everybody is experiencing I should be okay I just don't want to develop transmission problems as I've seen others have experienced.
SRT Seat
I'm looking for a seat that would be a little softer and would have more side support any information from anyone This crippled VET would love.

I can call myself the CRIP vet because I am one & own it and I have to have a little bit of fun.
If anyone is wondering besides my oversized Yukon Donalli I feel very secure in my grand Cherokee

I would take it to a custom upholstery shop or maybe a conversion shop. They can add side bolsters and change to a softer foam.
