Better YJ heat, thread roundup

Hey guys, with it a bit chilly out and us having a ton of threads on heat issues, I thought I'd roll the good ones up into one thread for easier searching. If you know of another one or a heat cure, list em up.


Chevy blower motor install
This is replacing your stock blower motor with one from a Blazer (about 15 bucks new) for appx 5x airflow

I think this does qualify as a STICKY for at least the rest of the winter. Great thread Richmond

I guess I should be thankful our winters rarely stay in the single digits for long. I can't even run my heater turned all the way up. You could pop corn in my jeep. And that's with a soft top.

I've read around alot, can you do the blazer blower motor upgrade on a 1994 Wrangler? One of the websites said it had never been attempted.

I love my vent deflectors that I got from Sentinal a few years back. It's been the best enjoyed mod of them all I bet.

there is also a new thing in the new 4wd cataloge, it goes in place of the out let for the heat under the dash, it gets rid of the vents that point towards the shifter, and brings the other outlet down and pointed towards the driver and passenger's feet. The part number is #5618
