2021 Stingray Rubicon 4xe
I saw several people from AZ on here, so hoping someone from the southwest can give me some insight into how your 4xe is holding up in this heat. I have always wanted a Jeep, and have been building my dream version in my head for quite some time. Initially I was planning on getting a hard top since I plan on doing lots of camping and need to carry a few kayaks on weekends to the lake. But after driving a convertible mustang for a week, decided I should give the Sky One Touch a test drive. Finally found one in stock and, well it was 115° today. Even with the top closed, panels on, windows rolled up and AC on blast, we were still sweating 10 minutes in. At this point the wife is now turned off of getting a Jeep and the best salesman in the state wouldn’t have closed that deal. On the drive home I found another dealer with a hardtop rubicon 4xe and we decided to see if that cooled any better. By this point it had cooled all the way down to 113°, and even though it seemed the air was blowing cooler on this Jeep, the cabin never really cooled off. So, what has been your experience with air conditioning during the summer in the 4xe? Is this just something I should expect with a jeep? Our temps out here are brutal, but they are survivable if you can get the interior cabin to cool down. Are there aftermarket options? Any ideas for keeping this dream alive?
