    Windshield defrosting

    Awesome video! I'm one step closer to pulling the trigger on this cage.

    One question though regarding the windshield defrost vents. Being in Canada, they come in quite handy in the winter. I can't seem to find any videos or pictures showing whether or not the dash cross bar covers the vents or not..I imagine it's pretty close?

    I can't speak for the EVO cage (I'm sure Eddie will chime in), but with my RH cage I thought I might have issues with the defroster. Turns out, for whatever reason, my defrosters have worked BETTER since putting my cage in. Not sure if that's all in my head or not. Just an observation I made

    Give me a minute and I'll take a pic for you.

    The TJ defrosters suck and like you, I found that the Rock Hard cage I had in mine helped channel the air up and do a better job. At least, I think that's what was going on

    Read that too fast and thought it said "The TJ defrosters suck like you" lmfao!

    Yeah I honestly think the dash bar helps channel the air up and helps evenly distribute the heat across the entire windshield and not just in the middle. But, like I said... it could also just be in my head.

    Ok - here's a shot of the EVO dash bar in relationship to the defroster vent.

    Thanks for the quick turnaround! Looks like there's still plenty of room, I guess the EVO team knows what they're doing 😜 Lol. Couldn't find any of the RH cage either, and no one locally has one.

    I can't take a pic at the moment but I can personally say that the defroster works well, maybe even better than stock as other have said, with the RH cage.

    Let me run out to mine and take a pic if you want the comparison.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
