@ least I'm not alone on this issue, bypassing it right now. The poor dub has other things that need fixing & the heater core can wait till its warmer out to fix it up.

Yup damn heater core I knew it was going to fail when I purchased this dub last year. Now our carpets are all freaking soaked and need a mad soap cleaning, the windshield has a huge ****ing crack from a random chip, the exhaust needs to be replaced, hopefully Thursday! along with rear a arm and front control arms. Godbless you Jeep this song comes to mind http://youtu.be/K-34Fdtg1dI

When my heater core went out I also replaced the evaporator. I'd previously pulled the dash for the blend door replacement and didn't want to have to do it a third time. Since you lose the freon when you remove the HVAC I thought it would be a smart move. My only regret was not also replacing the foam gasket on the HVAC casing. After 11 years it was pretty well shot, now my wife complains about cold air around her feet while at highway speeds.

PS: Would love to tell you it was a simple 3 hour job but with me doing it solo and fighting my bifocals it was a two day project...

My strong suspicion is that the foam HVAC gasket is a dealer item. I wonder if anyone has just used a tube of silicone or comparable?... might be kinda messy though.
