Default Poll: Would you like Dual Zone heated bucket Seats?

Would you like the option of being able to heat the lumbar area of the seat only? Most all manufactures heated seats are engineered to heat the lumbar area and seat area at the same time at two or three levels. Having the ability to heat the lumbar area only is a great feature if you have back issues. Do you think Ram should make this option available in the Ram? This feature is available in full size GM trucks and SUV's. Being a previous GM owner, it was nice having the ability heat the lumbar area all year long. What do you think?

After a long day- the heat on my lower back is the best- I'd prefer not to heat my arse in the process.

Never even occurred to me and I think I had a Audi years ago that did this so I guess its not anything I would use above regular heated seats. Personally after having heated seats in most of my cars over the last 25 years, ventilated seats was the "game changer" taking away the biggest negative of leather seats.

I added a small switch to the center console that turns off the seat bottom heating element when desired. My last truck was a 2003 Avalanche that I had for 10 years. I loved being able to heat my lower back on long drives.

Yes I think it is a great option to have the lumbar or seat back only heated if so desired. Some manufactures have had this option since at least 2003, I think the luxury imports since the 90's.

Dodge and Chrysler are way behind on some things like this.

If we are really wishing for stuff I might as well go all out,... How about vibrating / massaging seats like MB has been using a few years.

There has to be former GM owners that miss this feature! Those of you who never experienced the comfort of a heated lumbar area, only need to hop in the truck with lower backache and switch this feature on!

Yea, I would love to just have the lumbar heat option. I know some people complain about swamp ass with bottom seat heat. LOL
