Got my ordered 2021 Sport S Unlimited on September 11, 2021 after ordering it on July 29,2021 and have been real happy with it. I came from a 2015 2 door JK and miss the ability to remove an Dash HVAC vent to use as a bottle cooler for my water. I would keep a small pock tool slide it in the vent hole post out the vent pop the water bottle in blast the A/C on max close the other vents and get a cold drink.

I have not been able to determine how to.remove one of the round vents to use as a bottle chiller.

Can this be done?

let me know.

Not to be a dick but why not just get a Yeti cup that will keep your drink cold or warm for hours regardless of the inside temperature of the Jeep?

Maybe fabricate some drink holder that connects to the vent. Or get one of those coolers you plug into the 12volt.

I usually have water in the Jeep in a bottle. A Yeti will not cool it if it is warm. So defeats the purpose.

the cooler would be in the back. Would have to remember to filll the cooler. Also would have to pull over and walk to the back toget it once it is cold. The HVAC makes it easy to just pop in and grab when needed.

Ah no I was thinking the little single or double drink coolers on amazon. I started to get one myself. They have some that are just USB also.

Why can't you pull the vent out of the dash on the JL?

i tried. It looks like there is no release.
They are definitely separate pieces, they are sold separately. Probably have to pull the dash panel and remove it from behind. Lots of people have painted their dash panels this way.

You have to pull the dash panels off and take them out from the back.

Yeah, the vent is held in from the backside with small torx screws.
