When I first start the Jeep, transmission shifts well. As the engine heats up, the transmission stops shifting until it reachs a point where the car won't even move. Once it cools down it will shift until car heats up again. Any idea what might be the cause?

Hi glennbenjamin, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

Do you have a check engine light?

Check the transmission fluid level and condition if okay -bring it in and have it pressure tested this will indicate what's going on with it-could be a throttle and governor pressures are low, sticking shifting solenoid, torque converter and valve body etc
