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.

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.

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

blower motor upgrade

i just did this upgrade, and WOW!! it blows and heats the car so much faster (almost hotter in my opinion) and quieter! i read it on the forums many times about how great the improvement of the air flow was with this upgrade, but you have to do it yourself to believe it. its even quieter (i woulda been happier with it just being quiet and just slightly warmer) but i replaced my heater blower motor, and the heater core since i had it all apart.
took me about 4 hours to cut pull the old parts, cut the hole wider, and install everything back into place.
just be sure you have the right tools to cut the firewall, thats what took most of my time cause i started with a saw and then broke the blade and ended up having to use a dremel and went through 3 grinding attachments.

if anyone has any questions i'd be happy to try to help with this mod.

4 hours.. Did you have AC? or just take your time?

i didn't have the correct tools for the job, so it took me longer to cut the hole wide enough. plus i had to go get things like the heater core and my parts store isn't right around the corner.

so i guess you could say i took my time....no i don't have AC...unless you consider taking the top off AC ;)

Ahhh.

The reason I asked is I'm doing this this weekend and have AC (not used) but it's in the way and a PIA. Was just trying to guesstimate time required.
