|soazjeepster||I have an 05 Wrangler and I am surprised how much heat comes from the shifter/console area. I had a 99 Wrangler and I don't remember noticing any heat issues from the shifter/console area.|

|humarock1150||Don't feel bad, I just bought my 1st jeep a few weeks back and noticed the same thing, but it was more on the passenger side, which has the regular yellow tub paint v.s. the drivers side which they bedlined and tore out the carpet which was not so hot just warm....I'm going to remove seats, carpet and bedline the entire tub anyhow.....as I'll be using it for a postal vehicle and that will save me on my carpet when the snow/mud seasons come ....Enjoy your new baby....|

Kind of a pricey part, but here is the sub boot I was referring to. Installing the heat shield won't do much if you are venting all the hot air through your console.

|lindel||I went to Home Depot and picked up a roll of mylar covered bubble-wrap. It has mylar foil on both sides, runs about 3/16ths of an inch thick, cuts with scissors. I also got metal duct tape to fasten it down with. Pull the carpet and console, cover the floor with it and it should help the floor temps quite a bit. Total cost was less than $50.|

I've heard this stuff works wonders:

Yeah, it gets blazing hot.

|402captain||Last Summer I bought a roll of sticky backed heat shield from Summit racing. I applied it on the underside of the tunnel and the fire wall in the area of the gas pedal. It worked wonders. I went from not being able to drive barefoot to its warm but not burning. My tub is bedlined no carpet.|

|Dewcon4414||I wonder how that stuff they now use for valleys on a roof would work? Its got black sticky backing with metal face?|

|Stubbs60||Some people have success with using insulate sticky tape, like exhaust wrap, on the bottom side of the tub above the transmission. I can't vouch for te effectiveness though.|

Perfectly normal. You'll even see a warning sticker under the carpet right below the console that will warn of the heat. At least on my 03 it's there.
I have no problems with the heat at all. Just something you get used to.

Edit ya I know there are two.

|Beams37||Mike: Look under the shift boot. There is another rubber shift boot that is likely torn. I am in the process of replacing mine as well.|
|06-18-2014 10:18 PM|
It's normal. Some might say the rubber boot might be torn but it's hot none the less. . Drink coffee.
|06-18-2014 10:12 PM|
Hello All, I am experiencing the same issue, it is normal then? I read somewhere that could be something with the tcase fluid or the tranmission itself. Anything else that I should revise?

|GoldenSahara00||There is a stock heat shield about mid tub pass side for the exhaust. Nothing for the trans other than the stuff inside on the bottom of the carpet. I have my keep Bedlined, but leave the front carpets in. Easier to clean and better insulation winter and summer.|

in mine the gear shifter boot was missing, and
down below it there is a thicker flat seal; they both block the heat. My floors are rhino lined, and no carpet, so I too got some decent mats for the floors. I feel the warmth of the sides of the console, etc
I am deciding whether to put some removable carpet peices on the floors under the rubber mats; I am wondering what else to do to remove that heat source.
I considered thickening the layer of the liner on the bottom of the floors and on the area under and around the console; and considered insulating the inside walls of the console wherever that would fit.
I am wondering if the fluids need replacing, now that it was mentioned.

The hot floor thing kinda sucks. You might try getting some good floor mats like these.
It might just be in my head, but I swear the deep lugs allow better air flow between my feet & the floor.
|08-11-2012 08:12 PM|
|Mike Fussell||I don't have that. I'm sure it will become something I get used to. Thanks for explaining that.|

If you look under your Jeep and see a flat plate like in the pic, you have a tummy tuck. If you have something that looks like a lower lip of a camel hangin' under your transmission, you do not.
Jeeps are short & skinny, so everything is packed in pretty tight. I don't think there are any aftermarket "heat deflectors" that go below the body, but I could be wrong. Some people have used a heat resistant matting material under the carpets.
I still haven't decided whether or not to bedline my tub, or do some matting, or both. I think I've been avoiding the decision so that I can avoid the work, LoL!
|08-11-2012 06:05 PM|
I'm not sure what a tummy tuck exactly is, but transmission is pretty close to the floorboard. I haven't taken the carpet out yet b/c of the heat. do they make a heat shield that goes above the transmission, but not inside the truck so I can keep the carpet out?
thanks for y'alls replies

212 is about normal. After 3 or 4 hours of riding in 100+ temps, it feels like I have me feet by a campfire, LoL! The past few days &'ve turned on my A/C now and then to cool my feet, even though I don't have my doors / top on.
Welcome to Jeepin'.
Your Jeep looks lifted. I can't tell from the pic, does it have a tummy tuck? If so, your transmission is closer to the floorboard, helping to transfer heat to the cabin.
|08-11-2012 10:00 AM|
Do you have the carpet/heatshield in?
Mine gets pretty warm as well especially with no carpet. The trans/tcase sit up pretty close and when they get hot it transfers heat. You could need a tcase fluid change if the oil is bad and not handling the heat. Just a thought.

Hot floorboard/center console
Hi everyone! I just bought my first jeep a couple days ago, so forgive me if this should be common thing I should know about. I feel like the floorboard area is hotter than normal. With the half doors on and the top down, I feel pretty hot air on my legs. Also, the center console and the shifter are hot to the touch. Even with the A/C blowing on the floorboard it's still pretty hot. Any ideas of what to check out/fix? It usually runs right at 212. Thanks.
