On a couple of our JEEP XJ Cherokee’s I simply shimmed the rear of the hood a little and removed a small portion of the hood/firewall gasket away from the HVAC air intake.

OEM Under hood was so hot one had to use gloves.

This was too effective as winter warm-up took longer. Reinstalled gasket portion for winter.

But no more cooked components or burnt fingers.
