We won't know for certain until we actually try these things out, but I wouldn't be worried about it.

I wouldn't exactly leave it outdoors in the winter with no doors and top and let frost form on the seats (and everything else), but otherwise I would expect them to hold up fine.

I love how everyone thinks these are going to be the same as boat seats😂 it will probably be closer to what is on the TRD Off Road 4Runner than it is a boat seat. Either way I like the idea as someone stated in another threat about just buying custom seat covers and that way best of both worlds... won’t get hot or cold and when you need to hose down the bronco just take cover off.

If its 40 below you don't need to be topless to get frosty.

I'd be more concerned about frying like the egg in a "your brain on drugs" commercial in the summer. It's one of the things that I hate about the black leather in my car.

Vinyl is cold in winter. At least on the 1988 Bronco. Got sheepskin seat cover, much better.

A couple of questions...

1) How will the marine-grade vinyl seats hold up in the cold temps? (Vinyl is not as flexible in the cold as it is in hot weather, so they tell boat owners to be careful stepping on cold vinyl – it will rip easily)
2) It doesn't look like the "heated seats" option is available with the marine-grade vinyl seats. True?

I ask these questions because I'm in Colorado and temps get pretty cold in the winter.
heated seats is available on the mid package, so you can get that on both the bd and bl
