Jeep TJ Heat Coming In

I bought a 2000 Jeep TJ about one year ago. First time owner and have driven it mainly on weekends. It has probably about four inches of lift. This jeep seems to get a lot of heat in from underneath. It comes in around the emergency break handle, four wheel drive shifter as well as around the brake and gas pedal area. Is that normal? Is there a fix? Thanks in advance.

shift boot pan

Does the 2000 have this?

I know when I replaced mine, it was a drastic improvement.

Now that I think about it, I don't think that style inner boot was used in 2000. But there is probably a hole in whatever inner shift boot you do have.

I would agree that is where the problem usually is - it was for me. They cost about $20 shipped. My '98 is smaller than that, but does the same thing. A small hole or rip in it can let in a lot of hot air right off the engine and exhaust manifold. When I had my console out, I added SS tape around the cup holder's underside and added spray foam around them too to fill the cavity in. I put some SS tape on the tunnel too. Drinks stay cold a LOT longer now.

In addition to checking for a torn transmission shifter boot, check to see if you have heat coming from the HVAC foot vent when it isn't selected. The foot door actuator or door linkage may be faulty. If you don't have the factory carpet installed, you may also be getting a lot of heat transferred through the floor from the exhaust and drivetrain which is normal, the stock carpet has thick heat insulation on the underside to shield against this.

It has carpet. I will check that duct work also cause I get heat down around my legs also. Thanks for all of the comments guys. They really give me great information on what to look for.

Here's the "inner shifter boot" I put in my 2002. Maybe yours is the same

That's exactly the one my 2000 needed. It needed the upper boot too, getting them replaced made a huge difference in both heat and noise.
