Fogging Problem

The snow season here is over and we've got plenty of rain fall in the last few weeks. Then the new problem showed up - when it rains, the windows start fogging up very quickly (much faster than those on the sedan I used to drive). It gets even worse when I have 4 or 5 ppl in the car and we start talking...especially on the middle and rear windows (mine is 4-dr JK) because even I turn on the AC the cold air cannot reach them....then I'll have some real hard times checking the blind spots...I've never had an SUV before but i'm guessing it's the large space inside the car that makes it a bigger issue. So does anyone have any good solutions for this??

I've noticed this in mine too. To minimize this I set the function to wind shield and the fan to high. The hot/cold setting to hot. If that doesn't get rid of it fast enough, I put the a/c on. That usually clears it but it does take time sometimes especially with lots of people in the car. Once most of the moisture on the people evaporates and the air handler has a chance to remove it from the passenger space, the windows start to clear. For short jaunts, it isn't much help. The fan on high should at least keep the wind shield clear.
