Angry 2006 Jeep Wrangler transmission Problem

I have a 2006 Right Hand Drive Jeep Wrangler. I am a rural Letter Carrier. I drive this Jeep daily 53 miles with 546 stops. After I have driven it for a couple of hours the transmission has a hard shift into the high gear. It also puts off excessive heat. If you touch the bumper or the hood you can not, it will burn you. I have replaced the radiator 3 times the heater core 3 times and gone thru 2 batteries. Replaced the universal joints. It has 68,000 miles on it. I have had nothing but trouble. Can anyone help me in diagnosing this problem?

Definetly definetly need to get the fluid and filter changed and putting in an aftermarket transmission cooler will not hurt it, overheated tranny fluid GREATLY decreases it life and tranny life, just hope its not too late, and alot of people say any atf+4 will work, id get a quality synthetic fluid to put in it, but rule of thumb is if there's more than a teaspoon of metal in the pan then its time for a rebuild(or I think its teaspoon, maybe tablespoon)
