DOM = drawn over mandrel. So it is a seamless tube, no edge weld or anything. Which gives you a stronger tubing.

Its been been sticking around freezing pretty good lately so I kind of want heat lol. Plus, my Jeep hasn't been getting over 100* and my had millage has gone from 250 miles per tank to 200 miles per tank....

Swapped the thermostat. It was a failsafe brand before and I guess if the Jeep starts to over heat it sucks open. So, I swapped it out with a duralast.



After I swapped that out the Jeep started running at temperature but my heat was barely warm. I did some thread searching and decided it was a good idea to flush the heater core. The hose going in was hot the house going out was warm.



There was a little bit of junk that came out but nothing crazy. Heat its now pretty warm. When I or my hand up to the vent the heat is uncomfortable but other than that I'm not getting the legendary "cook you out of your Jeep heat". Any tips?

Did you flush it with anything other than water?

Ya I just did mine before jeep creep and water did nothing I ran Colling flush trough the whole system then flushed 10 times with water with letting it get hot in between. Went from no heat to cook you out heat.

I replaced my tstat and it helped a lot. I think I may try flushing mine too. Did you read the write ups on swapping the chevy blower motor in?

Cheers

Chevy blower = YJ blower. They are the same part number.
