How do i get hotter heat out of my wj gc?

I was wondering how I could get hotter heat, more air flow, out of my jeep gc wj Laredo. Ive heard you could possible take a heater core out of a ram truck? Bigger heater core. Is that true? And if so what years and models should i be lookin for and how would I fit it? Or is there any other ideas out there? I live in Minnesota and winters are cold so in need of more heat.

Sounds like you have a problem with your system. Mine would get so hot it would blow you out of the Jeep. What is your temp gauge reading when it is hot? Do both of your heater hoses feel as hot as the radiator hoses?

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

I just replaced my heater core and it gets me hot enough to sweat on these 10 degree days in pa. Maybe try flushing out the heater core:
