great AC
 
with the temps in the 90's this week, i found the jeeps AC well up to the task. one of the better systems if you ask me. i am sure the hardtop helps somewhat. being a painted to match top, i have also found its not hot to the touch inside.

best way to beat the heat....doors off/top down. :D

i agree, i just commented to my wife i think the jeep has the best ac system of any vehicle we ever owned.

They must of changed something. My 07 is horrible.

There is a modification people do that requires changing out a resister.

I have driven all makes of cars and have owned chevys and fords. Every Chrysler vehicle I have owned or driven has had excellent a/c. The best out of all of them. I told my wife one of the reasons I like Chryslers is because of the a/c.

Agreed.
When the system gets kicking it gets cold in there.

I agree, mine is so cold I cant turn it all the way down. Sucks getting out into the hot air.

wassup8687 07-07-2012 09:06 AM

Mine seems to work really well also.

Gets even a few degrees colder if you install a heater shutoff valve. :D

kjeeper10 07-07-2012 09:28 AM

Well they def made changes to the AC system. 07-08 it was horrible. Mine is horrible.
Google "JK A/C mod" lots of folks were doing it to help.

I've had a wide variety of luxury cars & pickups over the years.

The Wrangler A/C (and heater) is astonishingly effective.
Usually I only need it for a few minutes and then turn it off.

JJ you buy your jeep new or used ?

Got mine from original 'little old lady' that put 15000 miles on it in the 3 years she had it. No history of any repair/mod to a/c system.

As a side note, and not that I believe them on anything, I ran across one of those ConRep 'best/worst' auto bitch sheet reports. It listed the 08 Wrangler and the 05 Ram pick up, as having the 'best' service record with least complaints filed. Don't know if that's true, but my own 2005 Ram 4x4 2500, has given 88,000 no complaint miles despite the wide-spread criticism of Chrysler pick ups. I'm keeping both for now.
