Granted I am a YJ guy, but that being said it's time to start rolling the other family vehicles and I'd entertained a JK in lieu of my Tahoe.......Until today.
So had the opportunity to ride with another couple out to the state fair in Sacto today. 100+F temps. JK rode well, seats were comfortable, found it a little tricky getting in and out (but then I'm used to the driver's side of things). What I did find apalling was the A/C. We came out of the fair around 5:30 PM with the mercury topping 103. That poor JK A/C ran it's heart out and di a piss poor job of cooling the cabin down. Ladies in back got little if any cool air. We actually dropped the windows after a dinner stop at Fentons in Vacaville.
Is this the norm? For 16 mpg, I can be driving a plush Tahoe with a 5.3L V-8 with plenty of leg room for all and still hang meat in the cabin. Just curious.
