Heater Upgrade

801 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  LooseNut
I am trying to find out how I can locate who to call in regards to upgrading the heater in my CJ. I had seen
the writeup in one of my magazines but I have lost the magazine and can not find it. The heater upgrade
was an add on unit that was specifically made for Jeeps. The writeup had installed one in a CJ-5 and
praised the unit highly.Does anyone know of the article in reference or of the manufacturer of the heater
upgrade?????? I live in N.W. Montana and winter is right around the corner.

Depending on the year you could possibly put in a Blazer heater motor.
Here is the URL

Can't help beyond that...

/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif Welcome to the Jeep BBS Lee; the place to get all the good info on Jeeps and Jeeping. For the last year or so(I can't believe it has been apart that long!) my Jeepchick wife and I have been building the ultimate SNOJEEP. We began with a '79 CJ 304 TH400 Quadra-Trac Drive. We chose the QT because we could open the center differential and drive all four spots with each wheel going a different speed if need be. We have also made several other cold weather modifacations. (1) Dual engine block heaters, one for each cylinder bank.(2) the Blazer motor upgrade('73 Blazer w/ A/C) in the CJ heater. If yours is a '77 or earlier, you also need the upgrade defroster duct. (3) A center console which sits on a heat tunnel, fed from the rear with a 7" HUPP heater. The Hupp sucks air in the back and pumps it out the front corners of the console riser to hit the front floor areas. Water is piped under the floor to the heater connections which go straight down through the floor pan. The stock Jeep heater is used for defrost, the Hupp takes care of the floor. (4) A Quadra-Trac mod which completely opens the center differential, and allows for lock-up with the vacuum pot when needed. (5) A tricky indicator lamp system which allows my precious Jeepchick wife to see when the QT has indeed completed the shift to lock or unlock position.**** We have still not decided on a tranny fluid heater setup, but that is also on our list. Hope this helps.....CJDave(and Jeepchick wife)

Dave have you ever considered just heating your
garage. You'r heating everything else:)

/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif Heh heh...Yeah, we COULD do that. Actually when we are working down in the garage we pull the front cover off the heater and prop the door to the stairway open, forcing all the house air to go right by us on the way to the heater suction. That really makes it nice. Actually Big Guy; we DO plan to retire to Iowa (I KNOW....people from Iowa retire to CA! But hey, we can't ALL live out here in homoland!) so we will need some winterized equipment there as well as here in the snowy Sierras./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

But Arkansas has the Ozark and Ouchita Mountains with lots of National Forests each with many miles of trails.

And don't forget Slick Willie came to us from Arkansas.......
