Does the Durango offer this option? I travel a ton for business (75%) and yesterday experienced the joys of an air conditioned seat in my Lincoln LS I rented. I'm in houston where it's 95 on business and live in Phoenix where it's 112 right now!

It's was a wierd & wonderful sensation having my butt and legs cooled along with the rest of me with standard AC.

Is this an option on a 2005 Durango?

Also when I upgrade I'm going to great a remote start for my D, where all the windows crack about 2 inches upon start. When I park it for the night I'll set it with the AC on and high, so the next day when I remote start it and the windows crack, the AC cranks on blowing all the hot air out of the D replacing it with Cool. Wait 4 minutes then hop in and it''ll be perfect. This in combination with 'seat coolers' would be awesome.

Anyone know if this is possible?

Thanks!

I just rented a Lincoln LS in April down in Atlanta and it had that option. It was like sitting on a comfortable air hockey table. :rck: I know there are a few other car companies that offer it, but I don't believe Dodge is one of them.

How does it actually work? I'm assuming the leather seats must be perforated somehow to let the air out...

LOL! Yeah well I had a sweaty ass riding on a plane so when I sat in the Lincoln LS Rental and saw the icon on the dash with the seat cooler I was like NICE!! I must have sat in the Hertz rental lot with the AC going full tilt for 10 minutes. It's a weird sensation let me tell you. :)

I don't know quite how the seats work either (just checked Lincolin's site and they mention nothing) but the seats just get cool, they don't actually blow any type of air.

Yeah, the seats are perforated. Now I have to go outside and stare at the sun to burn swamp ass visuals out of my head.

First try shaving that hairy bottom :D After that, try sitting on a cotton towel. It helps soak up the swampness.

On an episode of "Pimp My Ride" on MTV...they cut into the seat padding and put fans in the seat. Two in the seat (one for each cheek/leg) and a couple in the back too. They put screens over the fan, so the weight of the person sitting on it wouldnt stop the blades. Pretty sweet idea!!!
