Spare Change

I've had my jeep for about 2 weeks now and I can't find a good spot to keep my loose change. I had it in the upper part of the center console storage but when you lift the arm rest up to access the bigger lower storage section all the change falls back and out. Cup holders are for my coffee.

Is there a change holder somewhere I haven't found yet?

Re: Spare Change

Yes, it's not very good though. There is a small trough at the back inside the center console when you open the lid and the upper level together.

There's also an area inside the armrests. It's not perfect but it will do in a pinch.

Re: Spare Change

I went to wallyworld and got a round coin holder and put it in the top armrest compartment. Works great.

Re: Spare Change

I use the round ashtray and place it in the the round water bottle slot in the drivers door. You have to lift it out every time to you make a deposit or withdrawal. I think it's the best solution for something that clearly was not included in the blueprint!

Re: Spare Change

I just keep a zip-loc bag in the car and put it in the center console and move it forward so it's sort of directly behind the select terrain dial. No rattling with it.

Re: Spare Change

I think the drink holder in the door may be the ticket. I'll check out the small trough in the back of the center console for some quick small change access. I'm amazed that this feature was missed - this jeep has everything! (but a change holder)

I guess if I had the storage area where the Quadra Trac selector knob was located this would not be an issue - so only for some Jeeps...

Re: Spare Change

My WK has slots for all the different coins in the center console. It what I missed the most when I got my WK2. Actually it is the only this I miss, love my new GC.
