    I pulled my heater core and ac outta my blazer to facilitate easier maintenance and to place my arb compressor under the dash where the heater core used to be. Anyway... I purchased FLEXILITEs MOHAVE HEATER. It was easy to install and because I'm running a skeleton dash, its easy to use and works (12,000btus)
    hhhmmmmm heat.
    no need for a/c here just take the top off.

    oh yeah and its only like 9inches by 12 inches and you can buy a plenum box for a directional application and a defroster.

    It was under twohundred bucks( around 120 for the heater and 30 bucks for the plenum box) Delivery was extra but the under twohundred is including delivery, from summitracing. You will have to call them so they can look it up. They can get it but its not in their catalog. I have all the part numbers if youre interested. It was something around twoweeks turnaround because flexilite was swamped. Check the review on the mohave heater at www.4x4review.com.
    remember its the mohave heater or mojave heater (one of those spellings) I am totally pleased and there is finally an option for all those with gutted dashes or custom gauge/dash panels. It actually gets pretty hot and it can also be plumbed for a backseat application for all you suburbans out there. This is way better than factory. My ARB compressor is mounted inside the truck on an aluminum panel that covers the hole left by the removal of the heatercore/assembly. Its out of the elements and easier to work on. Oh yeah, and there is less clutter for gauges and they are easier to wire.

    The Mohave heater comes with everything you need. I made a little platform for it out of aluminum and it was ready to go. It came with a wiring setup a switch(on/off/hi,med/lo). All you need is to plumb the heater lines to it. It was so easy and I'm no mechanic.

    Gosh you'd think I worked for flexilite the way I'm carrying on so.

    This idea to get rid of the factory a/c and Heater assembly is not mine. I was thumbing through some hotrod mag and it showed some kit to cover the old holes after removing your heater assembly and a/c. There was so much more room in there afterward. I guess all those hotrodder dump this factory stuff and go to like vintageair for airconditioning and heating stuff.
