My problem is that it never seems to get above the lower mark on the temp gauge and my heater only blows out warm air, never hot air.
What temp is your t-stat?
1986 CJ7, 4.2 w/4.0 head, TFI-HEI hybrid ignition, Clifford manifold w/Holley 390 w/cold air intake, OBA, 4.5" lift, Woody CV shaft and Tattons in front, 4.10 gears - lunchbox in front, Truetrac in the back, twin-sticked, blower upgrade for running topless, trying to keep it simple.
It's just a Jeep, and if you don't wheel it once in a while, it's not even that.
