A set of captain’s chairs instead of bench seat.

Man! All the mentioning of the "sports bar" makes me jealous. I didn't get that option on my Jeep. But then, all the NFL kneeling for the NA thing turned me off to sports anyway. But a sports bar in my jeep would be cool. I could probably get back into sports.

If i could have a front window defrost that actually cleared the entire window and maybe rain gutters that didn't direct water to the front seats, I would be blissfully happy.

A little less wind noise at highway speed.

I bought it right before it got cold out, so I haven’t been able to really dig into the problem. If I can cut it down a bit, I’ll be happy with it.
I’m not sure if this will help you, but one thing that helped me when driving without doors was to scoot the passenger’s seat about 6-8” forward and straightening the seat to a vertical position, putting the passenger seat forward of the B-pillar. On the highway this greatly reduced wind buffeting from the passenger side. I’ve had a TJ and a YJ before my current jeep and never felt as much buffeting as I do in my JL. This helped reduce it and made me less likely to lose my sunglasses or hat on the highway.

Do you use the "FRONT DEFROST" button?

I read a few threads about how their front window defrost does not clear the entire window. It must have to do with a few variables? Obviously exterior and interior temps and humidity levels. How the climate control is set. It might also depend on options. AUTO or manual climate control.

I live in Chicago and we get sub-zero temps, ice and snow. I use the remote starter in the winter. I have it programmed to defrost and heat seats and steering wheel. I have never had a issue clearing the entire windshield given enough time for the JL to warm up. 99% of the time I leave my climate control set to "AUTO" 66 degrees year around. The only time I noticed some front windshield fogging is when someone gets into my JL in the winter with wet hair. Or if it's raining and we are sitting for a extended time. Fog can happen when the engine shuts off from the eTorque start/stop activating the stop mode. I think it turns off the A/C compressor so it does not dehumidify when it's OFF? All of those rare instances can be cleared in seconds by pressing the "FRONT DEFROST" button. Once cleared I put the climate control back to AUTO.

Interior glass fogging can be kept down by cleaning the insides of the glass often with a good glass cleaner and wiping down with a microfiber towel.

The rain gutters are a pain for sure.
