All those specs in the sky are spiders. Came out to the jeep many times with it like that.
Did you end up getting rid of that problem?

This is going to sound dumb but how do I work the heat gun? Do I aim it directly at spots where there could be spiders?

Yes, they kept coming out and I removed them.

I think 99% of your problem is where you're parking. I would do as suggested above and pressure wash your jeep's interior, be through but avoid the dash. If they laid eggs behind the dash you will have to wait for them to come out, then remove them.

There is a easy solution!!!
Spiders like a damp dark area to live in.
Remove your top, remove your carpet and put your jeep out in the sun, and angled so that the sun hits your interior. Use a hairdryer and blow it in all of the corners areas that the sun doesn't can't get to.
If you follow the above then your spider problem will be eliminated!
Now the next trick is to keep additional one from getting into it. If you park it into a garage, then have your garage proffesionally exterminated. If you park it outside, then keep the top on and windows up. Have the area that you normally park in outside exterminated.
I have had a lot of experience with getting rid of spiders, because I have lived in Arizona for 39 years and we have a lot of spiders out here, and some of them are very dangerous!!!
