If you have a high mileage vehicle, or you have purchased this Jeep second hand, it could be a clogged cooler that is causing the overheating issue. How did the fluid look when it was drained?
Pull the lines off at the transmission and at the cooler. Use compressed air with a rubber tip to blow out the cooler lines. If the lines are not clogged up, then focus on the cooler itself. If it is the original cooler the factory installed, it may need to be replaced just based on age. Hot and cold temps will cause ANY material to fatigue.
Is the cooler clean (no debris between the fins or behind the cooler)? If you live in a dusty environment, this could cause enough heat build up.
To increase the cooling efficiency, you can move up a size on the cooler and you can use some spacers to increase the gap between the back of the cooler and what ever it is mounted next to. More air behind it will help it cool a little better.
Since it is a Jeep, if you have off road lights or a winch mounted in front of the cooler, you may want to consider mounting it someplace else to maximize the air flow it receives.
Other than cooler woes, I don't have many more guesses. If it were electronic you may or may not be getting a Check Engine Light. Might want to call a local dealership or a transmission shop to see if they have seen anything like this before.

Tail light and backuo light are separate circuits. Backup light is under the control of the backup switch located on the shift lever or transmission. Thats why one might work right and not other. Most troubles of this type are due to poor ground connections Check again what you did to change the tail light assembly

Look for a very dirty cabin air filter that hasn't been replaced since who knows when.

I think I had the same problem. You will have to go to the actual jeep dealer to get the correct one.

You have to remove the headliner. Remove all the door column bezels and rear bezels, both sides. Remove the sun visors. Remove any dome lights and look for screws. Most headliners have plastic buttons and Velcro that hold them in place. Start in one place and work your way around to release the headliner. Being extremely careful. Because if you pull down to hard, you will crack the headliner, leaving a nice crease. Once the headliner is out, You can get to the sun roof regulator and motor.

go to rockauto.com and look up the brake part numbers for each. If the part numbers are the same, then they're interchangeable. If not, then no
