Is it a Jeep thing?

Ok i have heard that jeeps can be a little reluctant to get into gear when it is hot out?
Is this true or do I have a problem?

On automatic tranny jeeps, yes, they can get sluggish to shift after high mileage. Is the tranny original? Have you changed the tranny fluid? This would be the first thing to try

mine's always easier to get into gear when it's hot out. Always had problems in the 30 and below range, but anything above say 65 is smooth sailin. You switched to synthetic fluid yet?

On my dad's, it is easier when it is hot out too.

143,000 miles is not high for the I6 by the way.

You could try bleeding the hydrolic clutch system, if it's not working properly you may not be fully disengaging the clutch.

Otherwise the syncros could be starting to go...
