I love this vehicle. Pop off the "t" tops, and drive. This past week we had 6 days of near perfect fall weather and the tops stayed in the garage for all 6 days.......its a ton of fun to have the open air feel in a vehicle that can go anywahere......what a blast!
Your "Jeep" mat is upside down. Carpeted side up is for mall crawlers. Rubber side up for real Jeepers. They even embossed the Jeep logo on the rubber side so it could be used that way.

Your gap is mostly covered up, but I do see some of it near the passenger side shoulder seat belt.

Heh Heh, I've changed the Recovery box/HiLift/Tool bag arrangement quite a bit and That recovery box is now in my trailer and the HiLift is in a HiLifty case for carrying and storing (straps)-

I noticed that too and mentioned it in another thread.

It seems like some sort of insert could be fabricated to fill that gap.
Maybe a cushion or something of some dense foam and a mat that covers the entire space rather than just the space behind the seats.

My air takes a little bit to start up as well. No big deal and figured it was just normal.

If anyone finds out that it's a defect please let us know.

Um...op mentioned same issue. Turn on a/c and it takes about 5 secs before it starts blowing.

Or were you just trolling me?

I don't mind being accused of "kidding"--"funning"--"baiting", but
.
Being accused of "Trolling" doesn't meet my appreciation level-

So, if you think I'm a Troller, we won't have to worry about any more conversations-

Ok, why are there no under-dash courtesy lights? Perhaps I'm just a complainer!
Yea the lighting inside the jk is rather poor. I put some red led about 4 light strips on both sides under the dash. Wired them to the back side of cig plug in which comes on with the key. They are on any time I am driving, but u can't even tell in the daytime, but they light the floor wells up real nice at night, just a nice mood light so to speak. As far as gauges go the ECM will tell you if anything is awray and you can scroll through it on the info center on the left side of the wheel also if you have this feature. My temp runs at about straight up 12 o'clock after warm up so I guess if it goes to the right it is running hot. Never moves even in 118 degree F ambient temps. The ECM even monitors the auto trans temp and will let u know if it gets hot, which I have never had happen even while running in the sand in 110 plus temps. Maybe my oversized aluminum fined cooling pan is doing it's job and was worth the $300 and my couple of days playing around to install it.

Yes on my 11 the ac takes about 5 seconds to blow out the dash vents, but it is blowing on the floor u just don't know it, then it switches and it does this every time on start up. That when the remote start is nice as I can start is about a block away in a parking lot and it is starting to cool down before I even get there. And with the auto temp control is does the heat or cool, which ever it needs.

KJKeeper10, as the title states, it was not a complaint about the delay in the HVAC air, it was an observation.

'no stinkin' gap...'

yeah...well...that's a LOT of stuff in there...

Exactly how difficult is it to REMOVE the rear seat in a Sahara 2-door?...I don't want any open bolt holes through the floor, either...

Another odd question...

Can you install the SPLIT rear seat out of the Unlimited, to the 2-door Wrangler???
