Mine gets warm, but then again I don't have a carpet because I bed lined the interior!

Heat sink from the engine compartment into the cabin has been common on quite a few cars I have owned.....and lets face it Jeep dont exactly go overboard on the amount of sound deadening and insulation on the firewall!

They don't skimp out on it either though, have you taken your carpet out? It's thick and heavy! Packed with a lot of insulation and sound deadening stuff.

Sure but I meant on the engine side. Other cars Ive had owned had a lot more of the "metal sheet on felt" type insulation (dont know the real name!) than my Jeep. There are large areas of the bulkhead that is just the painted metal.....no insulation/deadening at all!......although I have my virtually silent 5 pot diesel so noise is not an issue for me......ahem!
