Extra Heat

The heat in my jeep is terrible and this past winter was bad, are there any options for adding additional heat to my jeep?

I would check over your heating system, this is the first time I have heard a complaint of not enough heat.

If its working fine however and you just need more heat.

1. 195 degree thermostat.
2. make sure the cables are hooked up to your heater controls on the dash/under dash so that the proper doors/flaps are opened.
3. Swap out your heater fan for one from an chevy S10.

When I had a 190* t'stat my heat worked great!
I put a 160 in and it sucks, ill be swapping it back soon, the 160* was a mistake for multiple reasons....

Good call on the S-10 fan, any year in particular?
