    I am wanting to remove the heater ducting from under my dash/firewall and would like to see if anyone has any pics of custom work. I have a few things in mind involving a ammo can and cooling fan:rolleyes: . But would like to see if anyone has anything rigged up already.

    What are you trying to make room for?

    Or is it just busted up?

    It worked before teardown, I just want to make room for other stuff.

    Im leaning towards a homemade mojave heater type setup.

    should fit nice up in behind the glovebox... it's like a cave under my dash now, so open.. :bow:

    I'm just gonna run a vent up to the defrost and leave the other blowing on the floor...... Should probably get that soon, getting a tad cold in the morns... :wink1:

    I took one of these out of a semi truck cabover sleeper berth. Might be a cheap alt for ya. This one only had one fan in it but the truck had one of those fans in the driving area. The motor and blades fit perfect to put the second fan in it. I may put for a rear heat deal in the blazer. Originally a idea for the truggy

    Supposedly, the VintageAir systems replace all the heaterbox crap in the engine compartment with a system that installs completely under the dash....

    except for the A/C compressor of course!


    Not a "budget" solution, but certainly and elegant and effective one.

    It does. A complete gen2 unit will be just over $900
