2018 Armada - cupholder insert

Ok, I hate even talking about something like this, but has anyone found a cup holder insert that works well? The space for holding drinks is a terrible design.. water bottles just flop around in there.

I had the same issue with the cup holders, makes for a big mess if you dont have a lid. I am currently working on 3D printing some inserts that will fit in there and hold a normal size cup/can. I have the sizes dialed in, just working on getting the insulation figured out.

I know what you are saying about the cup holders. They look like they are made to hold 2 litre bottles.

Will you make the stl file of your cup holder public? Id be real interested in printing one myself.

here is some life hack idea, you may like it
go to YouTube and search for "Life Hack - Drink Cup Holder Too Big?"
I actually used the idea and got from amazon an item "3 Pcs Neoprene Insulated Travel Sleeves for Wine"
it fills the hole, but I did not cut it on half, cut about 1/3 from the edge, cut the hand handles but left the curved side. it come as a pack of 3 so if still does not fill the cup holder the way you would prefer, you'll still have the third sleeve to play with

And do you glue these to the cup holder?

nope, both Swell bottle and Blender Bottles slips right in and out without pulling the "neoprene inserts" out.
