Question CJ-7 Heater Question


I'm new to this site. We have a 1979 CJ-7 Jeep Renegade. We are wondering what is the best heater that you can buy to install into it and where can we get it. We are assuming that we have to install an electric heater hooked straight to the battery. Any info would be appreciated.

If you are talking about add-on eletrical heaters, I've heard good things about one of the ones sold by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware, but their website seems to be down right now.

But the other big vedors, such as Quadratec, Leon Rosser Jeep, and Wilson's 4x4 all sell heaters.

If your Jeep doesn't have any heater in it right now, you can use one of the Heatercraft heaters from 4wd. They connect to the stock type heater lines and have a 3 speed switch. They also have 2 ducts (one that can be split to supply lower level heat and one that can go to the stock defroster duct). System puts out like 24,000 BTUs and will run you out of the Jeep if run on high.
