BigCrave I noticed the same thing yesterday in mine. Funny thing is, it was 60 degrees and top was off and I was behind a dumptruck with a snow plow and a brine sprayer.

Dropped the top and drove the Jeep to the park today for a little exercise. Ran a few miles. It is beautiful out. 65 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. Jeep is running great!
