Does your A/C blow cold enough?

I don't get very cold air from the side vents and the main vents don't seem to work that great. This is in 85-90 degree weather with the top down.

It doesn't seem right. My 2011 Wrangler blows ice cold with the top off. But the ZL1 doesn't seem to be good enough.

Ideas?

Thanks

I don't understand why you would even run the A/C with the top down?

Mine is just fine, but I only use it with the top up.

You must not live in the south. A/C is required when driving in Atlanta.

I've lived in SC and NC and never ran ac with tops and doors off jeep. Always seemed pointless to cool the whole outsd. Just my opinion though.

I do not have a vert, and it is a 2012, but mine SUCKS. I have to have it nearly over to max cold, with the windows up, sunroof closed, to get a decent temp. Need to take it in to get checked.

My AC is very cold. I usually have to start adjusting the temperature up after a few minutes because it gets too cold.

I only used it with the top down once, and not suprisingly it didn't do much.

I find my AC kind of weak as well. It seems to work better if I don't blast the fan. Keep it about 3/4 and it seems coolest there.

Only time mine isn't cold enough is when I have the top down in 90+ heat.

Hello!

I would be happy to assist in a resolution. It gets hot in the South! I can help arrange an appointment at your dealership if you are interested.
