factory cup-holder findings

I know it's irrelevant and doesn't pertain to lifts, tires, gears, or light bars but this morning I noticed the front factory cup-holder is larger than the rear.

I haven't noticed that! I will look BUT, I will say, these cup holders are the best I've ever had. No flaps inside to wear out, they always grip.... I put some of those red JEEP inserts from EBAY and they look nice too!

Jeeps don't need cup holders. There is no way to drink from a cup with the way they ride.

Caution in regard to those Chinese cup holder inserts for the JL/JLU. A whole bunch of JL owner's had them warp and melt in the Summer heat and cause permanent staining/damage to the JL. No way would I install them..

For those interested in cup holder liners for the JL, there is a company in Daytona Beach, Florida that offers a dual foam liner/insert. These inserts are made in Daytona Beach and do not warp or melt on even the hottest Florida, Summer days. I have these liners and can vouch that they are nice and hold up in Summer heat.

I was hoping this was going to be a thread about the random stuff we leave in our cup holders, forget about, and then find months later. I found a fastener for my inner fender flare once.

However, I can arrive at my camp site, with my shake even more shaken than when I left the Kwik-E-Mart.

The cupholders stink. Put a 12 oz cup of coffee in the rear one, it sinks up to the lid and then you need to grab the lid to pull it out. How long before the lid comes off as your doing this spilling everywhere?

Who drinks a 12 oz coffee? The minimum size coffee I can live with is a 16 oz coffee. My normal morning is a 30 oz yeti cup.

Throw a hockey puck in the holder to elevate that baby coffee.

Many reviewers are reporting the cupholder portion impedes legroom enough that their leg hits it. Both passenger as well as driver side have negative reviews and the driver’s side reviews are only worse if in a manual transmission.

I enjoy listening to the rants of you newer Jeep owners. Cup holders? Don't they interfere with the on-board espresso maker?

I probably would have never noticed without this thread.

Now I hate you for pointing it out.

I don't know if I'm the only one, but I found out the hard way that you can't drink from an open cup when topless, doorless, and doing 70 MPH on a windy day.. The contents get sucked out of the cup and spray all over the place. What a mess

Even small mouth bottles (like Snapple etc) can be a challenge once you twist the top off.

Espresso, bah! My onboard latte maker is the best accessory ever.

I'm not super happy with the way my 30oz yeti fits in the cup holders. The front front one makes contact with the automatic shifter, the front rear is kinda under the armrest and the rear pair kinda get hung under the armrest lid also.

Primary reason for a JK pickup was for cupholders and a/c. In the MJ, I stuff the yeti between the passenger seat and the door (they won't fit in the roll of duct tape on the transmission hump)

I've found that the front is the perfect size for a 24 Hydroflask.

Interesting. My 30oz cup doesn't hit my shifter. The rear cup holder is really close to the armrest but because it's my jeep, I always use the front one.

I don't have a back seat installed and therefore my rear cup holders have been retrofitted into a charging station for my streamlight flashlight.

You are correct, fully seated they clear. I usually just set mine in and wack it with the shifter, it settles down while driving.

Microstream stays in my pocket, rear cupholders are for extra water and empties.

Some people commute to work in a JK and some people use a JK for work. Sorry my interior looks like the outdoors

For the machinists out there, I took a caliper to the cup-holders... 3.420" OD for the front. 3.210" OD for the rear.

Figures that when FCA manages to manufacture something with accuracy in the thousandths, it's cup-holders.
