Default Have you found?

Hey folks for those of you whom don't know me I have only been wheeling since 2004...

Well what i'm trying to figure out is how to enjoy a Great cup of coffee on the trail and still wheel at the same time.

So Have you found a Cup holder that works in your Rig?

Mind you I wheel with My Blue healer. and a between the seats cup holded get's steped on..

So What say you?

First of all I use a slim cup with a lid so I don't wear hot coffee. It fits in normal can holders.

I also wheel with a Blue Heeler. She rides well in the XJ but the Sami is a problem because of there is no room with the kids in the back seat. So I have thought about this same problem. I am trying to find a place to mount boat type drink holders on the dash.

The screw lid costco cups fit most holders, and when the holder fails to hold they don't leak or pop open. We bought some in a two pack last year and have been very pleased.

Drink the coffee, hang up the phone, put your make-up on, and read the map BEFORE you start to drive.

There I said it! Actually I usually just drive around with one hand until something comes up, then I do a "hand off", to my trusty co-pilot.

I have a couple of the plastic "hang on the window channel" cup holders in the XJ.

They work well as long as the cup isn't too heavy. If is too heavy, then...

One of my travel mugs fits perfectly between the seat and the E-brake handle when it is released.

Mine fits perfectly there too but the dog steps on it and knocks it over and coffee gone.

Yeah Yeah Yeah but I don't have power steering yet, can not drive one handed, Shoot I Currently dislike wheeling with someone who like to Yap allot on the CB while we wheel cause I can't talk on the CB and hold the steering wheel..... ((( Have to install power steering))))
