    i recently was wandering around in home depot & came across frost king duct insulation . was $18 for a roll 12 inches wide, 15 foot long .aluminum & foam with sticky backing . i removed the console top & left & right sides & easily removed the factory waffle foam strips, cleaned the areas with solvent & applied the duct insulation & used a small roller to press it on. did a double application at the cup holder area, was skeptical until we went to the woods to ride . all i can say is IT MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE ! we ride in the Florida heat & the only area that you can feel any heat is from the shifter gate. best CHEEP mod yet!!!

    Insulating the engine area helps a lot. Wrapping the exaust pipes with the proper wrap or getting pipes Jet coated is huge too for heat.

    Do be careful not to put that insulation too close to unwrapped or heat coated pipes tho, as it may catch fire if too hot. It isn't the material itself that will catch fire, but it is the glue itself that catches fire. These insulating materials do a great job reflecting heat away from your console and engine hood, but the glue used is not impervious to the heat and can flare up.

    This is a great thread! I'm new to the commander world but I can already tell this heat issue could become a problem. Cabin heat, hot summer heat, and the humidity here in South AR is def not a good combination. Although I guess I could just deal with it that way I could make hot chocolate in my cup holders during the winter months....naaaah! I plan to install some thermotec lining this weekend and maybe see about getting some wrap for my pipes. Seems to be two great options for the heat issue. I may try to see if I can do a before and after temp reading with my temp gun on maybe the plastic around the cup holders or something like that. Might give some noticeable results.

    Thanks for the very valuable info. The heat was driving me crazy in the 100 degree temp.

    BRP does have a retrofit insulation kit for the tunnel/console. I had it installed in my 2013 XT and noticed a big difference. I also wrapped my headpipes as others have mentioned. Much cooler.

    I have a 2013 commander and I bought a console cover from Tite Tops in Idaho. It works great and you can take it off in the winter for heat.
