You are the Brunette on top, given that her claws are out, like a Raptor. Beware, however, the blonde is taking a photocopy of her own arse, which will momentarily disarm you, and will soon regain top position.

Re: To hot

came across this in the owners manual

IF YOUR ENGINE OVERHEATS

In any of the following situations, you can reduce the
potential for overheating by taking the appropriate action.

• On the highways — slow down.

• In city traffic — while stopped, place the transmission
in NEUTRAL, but do not increase the engine idle
speed.

NOTE: There are steps that you can take to slow down
an impending overheat condition:


• If your air conditioner (A/C) is on, turn it off. The A/C
system adds heat to the engine cooling system and
turning the A/C off can help remove this heat.

• You can also turn the temperature control to maximum
heat, the mode control to floor and the blower control
to high. This allows the heater core to act as a
supplement to the radiator and aids in removing heat
from the engine cooling system.

Re: To hot

Surprised nobody has mentioned the Trailer Tow Group IV and it's Heavy Duty Engine Cooling. I'm hoping that makes a difference keeping the engine temp in a good place. The heaviest thing I'll stick in the receiver will be a bike rack and a couple of bikes, but I'm glad for the cooling upgrade.

Re: To hot

But what does the Heavy Duty Cooling kit contain: a larger core radiator? Lower temp thermostat? Higher flow water pump? Tranny oil cooler? Engine oil cooler? Or just blue hoses rather than black?

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to answer those questions for all of us. Really! I'd love to know!

I'll add to this:

CAUTION!
Driving with a hot cooling system could damage
your vehicle. If the temperature gauge reads HOT
(H), pull over and stop the vehicle. Idle the vehicle
with the air conditioner turned off until the pointer
drops back into the normal range.
If the pointer
remains on HOT (H), and you hear continuous
chimes, turn the engine off immediately and call for
service.

Cooling System
To reduce potential for engine and transmission overheating,
take the following actions:
− City Driving
When stopped for short periods of time, shift the transmission
into NEUTRAL and increase engine idle speed.
− Highway Driving
Reduce speed.
Air Conditioning
Turn off temporarily.

Just for you, I posed the question to Jeep customer service. Waiting to see if they reply.
