one guy was rebulidng a J-10 and said that he had used hot rod heater and updated the heating system in the
J-10. The J10 looked awsome. You can find hot rod heaters on google and they're expensive.

here is a NOS from ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-S-550368...item2c6027b749

the real question is, why are you replacing the heater. if you looking to add some heat you could keep your OEM heating and install a secondary heater and gain some extra heat. check out the mojave heater.

I have a YJ Tub and hardtop running half doors and soft upper doors and even went as far as buying a used YJ heating system.Replaced the blower fan motor with a bigger blower fan motor and use the CJ's fan wiring to turn the fans 3 speeds up to the highest setting and it is quite warm.

Factory one is pretty shot, figuring cheaper to go aftermarket.

everything does not work properly. From hard to move and broken linkages to just blowing warm air.
