I wish my 2012 WK2 AC blew like my 2013 JK

What a difference!

The JK will blow air so hard it will part your hair (yeah, I know if has bigger vents)! I know in the WK2 form over function took over, but wow! Whoever makes those decisions needs to spend a few weeks in Texas/Arizona before they sign off on the AC system.


Funny thing is, I used to live in Corpus Christi, Texas and it was a test area for Mercedes and Chrysler (still is). the high humidity and heat help them to test the vehicles in those conditions. I had seen all kinds of diff vehicles down there before they are released. Most recently the new smaller Mercedes hatchback (kind of a VW Golf/Audi wagon size car).

Re: I wish my 2012 WK2 AC blew like my 2013 JK

They figure in a Wrangler you have less insulation, IE soft top/hard top. so much greater loss of heat/cold.

IDK where the evap core is located on the JK's are but i know the dashes are a lot smaller.

also i believe there is no rear vents in a JK correct?

So you only have the front and floor vents.

eh my Wk2 cools great compared to my WJ i had.

If no one in the back, try shutting off the upper console vent (can't turn off the lower side ones). Are you using recerc ? (have to select every time you start the engine, doesn't latch) makes quite a difference in Florida.
