Heat in a YJ

I found a couple threads on how to get more heat but I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of there setups.

Is your heater core clogged or something? My stock heater will cook me even on the coldest days.

if your heat isnt that hot, then either your heater core is clogged or your thermostat is stuck open. Either way, your heat should be so hot that it could burn a hole in your foot.

There was a thread a while ago that someone made a deflector for the defroster that aimed the heat at him as well. Looked quick but didn't see it.

Definitely... if you feel your heater isn't working properly, check everything over. Mine is working at what has to be perfectly because I get cooked inside. I have two settings "OFF" and "HOLY CRAP IT'S HOT".

Same here. Just fired her up today after sitting to get the juices flowing and within 5 min, I had HEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If your not getting heat, then something is amiss.

ALSO, the heat deflector mod was done by our own Sentinal02. I have the deflectors he made and they work great. Here is a link to the post:Linky

I also have the deflectors and I absolutely love them. Since I replaced my thermostat a few years ago, my heat has been amazing.

if your jeep takes a long time to get hot, then you need to replace the thermostat. dont bother checking the heater core.
