I just want to say great idea and nice work on building something that looks really good and is functional. I really think you should pattent the idea because it is something every YJ should have from the factory.

Thanks RC, I agree, YJ's should definitely have had something like this from the factory. Now it's not just my toes that are unfrozen

Just out of curiosity, has anyone complete a set of their own yet? my first set went out in the mail monday so I have yet to have any feedback from other YJ owners.

Nick,

It was great doing business with you! I recieved and installed the vent covers last Friday. If there is anyone out there that is tired of having cold hands or just being cold while driving their YJ then you should definitley have a look at these!

Do YJ's usually have a Heat problem...because my 89 YJ heat BURNS my feet!

I turn it on high when i first start it up...20 min or so later I need to turn it off or cool it down because my feet are burning and i'm sweating.

Maybe I just got lucky.

They have a heat problem on the upper body portion. These vents direct the air toward your upper body but can be flipped back to re-direct the air to the windshield.

I would so "buy" that since I won't steal your idea. But alas my clinometer is in the way. Very cool.

just tell me the measurement and i'll adjust them. i too have a clinometer and they still work fine with it there. just need to slide the shields out to the sides a little. the shields don't sit flush to the dash/vent anyway so overlapping the edge of the vent really isn't a problem.

Sent... You came up with a great idea...

Now on the patent part... You're kind of covered to a point... You published pictures of what it is and does... This will allow you to block some jerk off from getting a patent before you, but then if someone does send in an application before you, it may also block you from getting it. So you both lose...

It may be expesive, but I would at least get the ball rolling. When I had looked into it a couple years ago for an idea I had, it was going to cost me about $8,000 to get the patent (could have done it cheaper by not going through an attorney), and maintain it. Then as I thought about it more, and did some research on it, I found that there wasn't really a market so I dropped it. I would lie cheat or steal the money to get the patent, It would not only apply to Jeeps, but it could apply to any car out there. You could be looking at a pretty decent market for them. Good luck with it...

S,

Where in NY are you? I'm in NYC, maybe I can come pick up a set. I definitely want one for each side, a full-wide whatever. Very cool idea. Or, uh, warm idea, I mean. Email me at silverappleofthemoon@yahoo.com. I have a 95 YJ. Thanks,

Jarrett

I got my vent covers in the mail today. If I didn't know any better I would have thought I ordered them from Quadratec. Not only were they packed well but they came primed, assembled, included excellent directions, and the screws to mount them to the dash came in their own plastic bag. They are an absolutely perfect fit for the vents and they couldn't be constructed any better. I knew I was going to like them but I am extremely impressed with their quality and the steps Sentinal took to make it look as if a large company made and packaged them. If anyone is thinking about getting them then by all means don't hesitate because it was an absolute pleasure doing business with Sentinal and I just want to say thanks again.

Thanks for the feedback RC, glad you liked them. i meant to warn you, but i left the pivot screws loose so they'd be easier to disassemble since you mentioned you were going to paint them. i'm sure you can figure out that they'll need to be tighter when you actually install them

Amazing. Awesome. Very nicely done. I love home made stuff and these are super sweet. Good skills, Nick. They don't look all half-hammered, wobbly, and crooked. really professional. I definitely recommend you all get a set. I don't have Air Conditioning, but does it come out the same vents? (New thread? better cooling in a YJ? I never think of AC except on rainy summer days when the hard top is on.)

Thanks, Nick. nicely done.
