I'm not sure if this is normal or not, when I drive for over 20 minutes my feet start to burn, it was nice when it was cold but now it sucks, my foot was sweating. Is there a reason it gets so hot near the pedals/ is this normal for Jeeps?
yeah it gets to be a balancing act if you try and run with the top off and heat on this time of year and again in the late fall. I installed seat heaters-and just leave the heat on low coming from the vents to my face/upper body.
The heat issue is why I still have carpet in the front of my Jeep.
I don't have a carpet in, and it still gets hot. It's even too hot when I crank it down halfway. I generally crank it down 2/3 of the way, and adjust from there. My engine is running at normal operating temp.
Keep the heat setting on vent (not feet) and add carpet.The 4.0 is notorious for producing heat as a by-product of lean fuel mixture for emissions reasons. And the simple fact that your collector for the header is right under your foot (i.e. tub pan as only heat sheild between foot and header)
