Yeah pretty much lol. My kids are home with me but it definitely different conversations with my kids versus adults.
I haven't wrapped my headers yet but I have wrapped almost everything from the headers back. The routing of my new exhaust was putting a lot of heat on underside of the tub, making the floor hot, a few spots were over 130 degrees. The muffler sits under the passenger seat, so it won't bother me much, but thought my passengers may appreciate a little cooler rideAwesome that is what I am looking for. I definitely need something between the exhaust and the floor, and especially around the muffler. I have a flowmaster as well. I have the metal shield as well but anything else will help in my opinion. I am also considering wrapping my headers but I havent decided on that yet.Unsure what kind of heat shield you're looking for. I picked this up to shield my muffler, I have the flowmaster metal heat shield already, but the floor of the tub still gets really hot. Figured I could add this between the muffler and underside of the tub.
Yeah there is definitely a lot of heat underneath from my exhaust as well. I'll slowly address it as I fix other issues. I know once I'm under the Jeep I'd rather do as much as I can.I haven't wrapped my headers yet but I have wrapped almost everything from the headers back.

Brain fart. Sorry.I will look at the transmission cooler. Can I use one on my AX-15? I was under the assumption that I couldn't use one on a manual transmission.yup. get it's fluids some dialysis.
Always good day when you get all the fluids changing schedules aligned.
adding in a tow-rated transmission cooler (as recommended by none other than @Chrisnvegas ) along with my transmission temp gauge was a really good decision.
You should look into it... i replaced my stock transmission cooler at that time and mounted it dead center of the rad above my winch.
A few months back I talked to a transmission shop and they can get me a reman ax-15 for about $1400 and I give them my old one. I have very little experience with working on transmissions and swapping seems like the best/easiest option for me.
Obviously when I do transmission swap I will do a new clutch, flywheel but what brand is best for that?

It is okay. I have been doing a lot of reading and I'm considering doing an Automatic swap. Just have the gears selectable to keep a low gear when needed off-road. I just am a fan of the third pedal. We will see which route I go.Brain fart. Sorry.
Manuals don't really require them (depending on the context)... no torque converter which produces most of the heat for automatics.
Will do. Probably won't be until this weekend but who knows maybe things will show up early.Let me know if you find a fix. I plan to pull my motor and pop the freeze plugs to see if they reveal anything.

Why remove it? Run fluid through that! Use higher pressure hose and efi hose clamps. Why buy when you can borrow?!! Excellent cooler already in placeI drove to remove the rest of the AC components especially the condenser in front of the radiator. Sent from my iPhone using IcrapN'talk
I agree 100%. I used to rush to get projects done as well but that was usually when it was my primary or only vehicle and I needed the vehicle quickly. This Jeep is at the bottom on the list of daily driving duties. It is strictly my toy/project vehicle so I can wait for letting it cure. I am eager to get it rolling but I know the importance of getting things done correctly.Let the fun begin!
One thing I did differently when working on my cooling system, was actually giving the rtv enough time to cure. Sounds stupid, but I don't think I used to give the rtv enough time to fully cure before filling it up putting the system under pressure. Doubt you're making that mistake, I just know I was always so anxious to get the project done, that I wouldn't wait. Now I give rtvs a full day to cure, if I can…
