I don't think there is such a thing. I have the mopar seat covers and my back is usually soaked after a long drive. Someone should make refrigerated seat covers that plug into the cig lighter.

I found some at WalMart for about $23. They are polyester, but seem to work ok here in Southern California. The good thing about them is that they are inexpensive and they can be swapped over to the other seat when they wear on the edges. I had the same style in my "92 Wrangler for years so decided that they were good enough for the '05 Rubicon.

I think I paid $120 for a front set of Seat Glovers.

They're not neoprene, so you get more air circulation than something like a Wet Okole. IMO, they feel cooler than the stock seats even though they are black and just soak up the sun.

I have nylon ones. They seem to work pretty good.

Those bead seat covers do provide better ventilation in spite of appearances... and it'll take the sting out of those long bumpy rides... aaah solid axles...

If you don't mind me asking, are those covers compatible with the new style seat releases (up by the headrest)? Also, are those for the high back seats, like these?

Yep, they work just fine.

They have little slits cut into them with some Velcro to seal it up if you don't use them.

That means that either seat cover will fit on either side. My plan was to swap sides every time I washed them so they would wear evenly, but who can tell which is which when they come out of the wash?

Check out these covers. I've had them for a year and I love them. They fit very well and do not make you sweat. The best part is throwing them in the washing machine when they get dirty. They are also water resistant in case of spills,etc.
