|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.

|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!

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.

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.
