I'm not gonna touch that one.

So Schmoe, u really going to cover up the upgraded, perforated, ventilated, real coriinthian leather with a towel and the cabbie beads?

It's one thing to cover a cab's naugahyde interior with those things to avoid swamp butt, but me thinks you have one too many scratches on your rear bumper.

Well I am not getting Overland - it's Laredo X for me, so it is not perforated. And the answer is yes. Even if it was perforated and ventilated I am not sure how effective it would be.

NOTHING BEATS CABBIE BEADS! Would you like to take a bridge or a tunnel?

Ha! I guess if you're coming from Afghanistan, those beads would feel like a Simmons Beautyrest.

You do realize that this entire board is going to dogpile you after you take possession of your baby and start firing off a bunch of anal retentive questions and expressing inconsequential concerns?

Re: Ventilated Seats

Wondering if the amount of cool air is somehow tied to the A/C? Tried them today, was a rather warm day & the air in the cabin was rather hot. Decided to crack the windows and leave the A/C off and put on the ventilated seats, and hardly noticed anything.

Understandable since it's only moving the hot air already in the cabin. Understand too that it "draws" air out, it doesn't blow air onto you.

Basically the seats suck

I used them a lot on our 2500 mile trip a couple weeks ago and you only really feel it when you are sweating. What they really do well is keep you from getting hot. I never once felt like I was sticking to the leather, even after hours in the seat in pretty humid weather and a lot of direct sunlight coming it.

Re: Ventilated Seats

Yeah, after posting this I realized it was a pretty stupid question. Obviously, the seats are only "ventilating" the air that's already in the cabin. If that air's hot, they'd simply be moving the hot air around you (whether blowing or sucking ha ha).

I did have the A/C on pretty strong the time I tried them before this, and noticed quite a bit of cool air moving around my butt and back.

Was just afraid maybe something broke lol.

Re: Ventilated Seats

I don't like this "ventilated" seats in WK2. First of all it should have sucked the air instead of blowing it out. Second of all, it's way too noisy. Try other ventilated seats and they're very smoothly operating.

Re: Ventilated Seats

The guy who posted before, said they do "suck", not "blow".

I'm one of those guys that gets the swamp ass. I found that if you slide your ass forward in the seat you can feel the air better.
