Coin Holder?
 
Has anyone found a coin holder in the new 2011 Grand Cherokee? I can't believe they didn't build one in somewhere. My old (2002) Grand Cherokee had coin holders molded right into the front part of the console. Just open the lid and there were the coins needed for highway tolls. I can't find any such handy coin holder in the new one. If I can't find where they hid it I guess I'll have to look around for an aftermarket add on.

Following this line of thought they could have put a golden money clip on, say, sun visor (Overland model only. Money not included).

Those coin holders in the WJ never worked anyway! I have to fish at the bottom of the armrest console for parking meter coins...they jump loose after hitting a few bumps.

they need to put a decent, hidden change holder somewhere in the bottom part of the center console/armrest. maybe that is what jeep is holding back to sell the 2012's.....tacky, yeah, but it keeps me from having to pour change into the cupholder and would be easier when i came to a toll booth. i just dont like a bunch of stuff in my cupholders, i want them empty and clean. change in there messes all that up. i guess ill be buying a small change holder thingy.

The new 2011 rides so smooth you should never have anything jumping loose when you hit the bumps!

I was looking for one too and was surprised they didn't have one, especially with all the room in this thing.

Maybe there is a little one in the middle armrest area with the deeper section opened. If you look all the way back (top area near the folding part) there is a little area that looks like it could fit a small handful of change.
