no lower windshield defrost?

my wife rav4 has a neat feature during winter, lower front windshield defrost.
de-ices the wipers and de-jams all the ice that is stuck there.
the jc doesnt have it right, or does it?

Not that I am aware of. That feature has heating elements in the lower windshield glass, like rear windows have. Not something I would want. There is a company that makes heated wiper blades.

I had that feature on my Subaru STI, it was amazing in our Canadian winters. I really miss it on the Jeep.

yup, you miss it when you have cold winters. really awesome on my wife rav4. start it for 15 minutes, and then all the accumulated ice just vanishes.

The Jeep's defrost system works wonders. You should try it! No electric element needed.

Certainly would be nice...I had a big chunk stuck to the hood just below the wipers the other day, partially blocking my view. Not a huge deal, but annoying nonetheless. Not annoying enough to get cold and fix it though.

It will work wonders until you overheat and turn the heat down. An electric grid works without having to cook yourself. The Cherokee has one, the grand cherokee does not.

Tacoma weather not representative of why one would need a de-icing grid.
