Moved from Vegas to Minneapolis...need advice

I just moved from one of the hottest and driest parts of the country to one of the coldest and wettest parts of the country.

The build, up to this point, has been very focused on the climate of the place I was living, and I'm happy with the setup for the Mojave Desert. But I live in a very different place now, so I'm essentially starting my build over from scratch.

There are a few things I have to do that are either obvious or I've already identified:

1) Closing up the cab. My windjammer and bimini top aren't going to get the job done in this climate. I took the backseat out and I like running it pickup style, but a waterproof solution to that seems kind of elusive. Do I have to bite the bullet and get a hard top?

2) Climate control. I made a custom dashboard, and in the process, removed all the climate control functions. Windows don't usually fog up in the desert, if it was hot, I was running with the doors off, and if it was "cold," the transmission usually kicked out enough heat to beat back anything the Mojave winter threw at me. So I took it all out, ran a bypass at the water pump, called it a day. Any ideas for how to add heat and defrost without a completely new dash?

3) Suspension. I had it shipped here from Vegas, but had to pick it up in one of the suburbs on the opposite side of the city from where I live. Driving it back to my house SUCKED. It was less than a week after things started to thaw out here, so it was probably a worst-case scenario for the roads. There were stretches of freeway that felt like old mining roads except for being surrounded by traffic and moving at highway speed.
I probably need new springs (I've probably needed them for a long time) and shocks, any advice here? I've got a 4ish inch lift, I'd like to stay with that. Not looking for anything particularly fancy, but what should I be taking into consideration.

Any other advice is welcome. I'll be thinking about tires (running BFG All Terrains now), maybe electrical issues. Rust is beginning to terrify me a bit, my YJ gets a garage spot, so my 96 4runner is outside--I expect to wake up one morning and find a pile of red dust in the driveway where it once sat. My vehicles seem to be the oldest ones on the road here by a pretty wide margin. What else do I need to know about living in a place that's cold and wet and full of trees?

Move back to the great southwest quickly. Don't even pack the house back, leave the wife if she isn't willing, and get the heck out of there. You will find that winters really suck in about 4 more months.

Bet you can't wait for frozen batteries, frozen door locks, frozen everything

One more thing watch out for deer running out from behind those trees

Good luck to you

You've never spent a summer in southern Nevada...you know fall is coming when the high temperatures get down into the double digits. Usually happens in October. The water situation is deadly 100% of the time, usually there's none and you die of thirst but sometimes it rains and there's flash flooding and you drown. There aren't as many bugs but the ones they do have are gigantic and poisonous.

I lived here before I moved to Nevada. It's not worse, here, just different. Also, my kids might actually learn something in the schools here.

I don't live in MN but I would flush my radiator and my heater blower and get the hottest air possible. Also, my Jeep had a pickup cab style top. I think this link is it. Water and wind proof. My only dislike was no ability to use a back seat for the grandkids.

Don't assume!! I have lived in the desert southwest 50++ years of my life I've only recently moved to South Carolina.

You embellish on the conditions in the desert slightly.

Here's a question aimed at you entropy319...If you have lived in the upper midwest before, Why are you asking questions on what to expect?

He doesn't have a heater, it's been removed for what-ever reason

No, he says he ran a bypass to the heater core and removed the controls. As long as he didn't remove the heater core, he should be able to reattach the hoses and hook up a linkage to open the flap in the heater box.

Here's a question aimed at you entropy319...If you have lived in the upper midwest before, Why are you asking questions on what to expect?
Because I didn't get a Jeep until I moved to Nevada. I know what it feels like to live here, I don't know what it's like to drive a Jeep here. I'm not posting here for life tips, I'm trying to optimize my rig for my new environment.

I had something similar to that a few years ago...I was pretty hard on it, broke the zipper around the window, and the sun finally got the better of the fabric and it started to rip in places.

The one I had used the standard soft-top bow assembly, but it looked different than the pictures, it wrapped around the roll bar.

Mine would collect water in the roof on the rare times it rains, and it would eventually leak through...do you have any problems with that?

Start with Polyurea and Por 15 on the under body/frame, and ensure coolant is at it’s proper mixture.

I lived in Bemidji (northern MN) for over 25 years, Minneapolis is pretty mild in comparison for temperature, but they salt as much as the next city in the winter.

Unfortunately, I did remove the heater core, it was leaking and was one of the things that prompted me to go ahead and just replace the whole dash. It's a flat dash, and I didn't design it with a heater in mind. Making room for one could mean going back to the drawing board and doing a whole new dash.

I'm hoping to come up with an outside the box solution. Does the heater need to be in the dash? Could I mount one behind the seats? There are generic heaters that are plug and go, it seems that I could mount one anywhere if I could run the hoses there.

If I seal up the cab, it's not much space to heat. Is there an electric heat option?

You could mount an AUX heater box in the back but you're going to want a defroster to keep the windows from frosting over. There are electric units I've seen but don't have a clue how well they work. Just can't see a 12v electric heater putting much of anything out. You might have to have one for each window, that I don't know.

Older Ford pickup (70-79) had a heater box that mounted on the interior of the passenger footwell under the dash. Held the heater core and blower question is, is there room for it in the YJ footwell.

I live in New England, Massachusetts specifically. My YJ has always been a New England Jeep, and well she is way better off than most. Since you are from AZ I must agree with the rest of the guys on here that you need to take care of the frame. Just stay on top of it every year and you’ll be fine. I can’t speak on anything else, since we don’t experience cold like that here. I don’t know if an engine block heater would be necessary? Or if that’s even possible for a YJ? I do absolutely love your dash though!!! It’s kick ass!! I hope you find a way to keep it! The hard top is a really good move. It will seal well, durable for those big snow storms, and will help with heat if you use a LizardSkin heat spray product on the interior which I recommend if your really concerned about temperatures in your cabin. I wish you the best of luck! Enjoy the summer now, you won’t see it again for a while lol! Cheers!

I could definitely see this working. I could even make some kind of cover over the transmission hump to cover the hoses.

I'd still need to find a way to defrost the windshield, but I think the cab top Jarhead Al recommended would keep the cab warm, especially if I had that heater running.

Here you go, comes with everything you need except hose

https://www.summitracing.com/parts/v...SABEgJOx_D_BwE


Just a quick thought.... Might look a little hillbilly though. Mount that heater in the back run a flexible duct along the inside of the roof aimed at the windshield, there's your defroster. Come spring time pull the duct out no one would be the wiser.

Seems like to me that if your factory heater box is gone there might be just enough room to slide that just under dash on top of the tranny hump. It looks like you were handy enough to build your dash setup you could probably build a nice looking decent enclosure. The summit link has the dimensions on one of the pics 10"x9"x5.5" isn't all that big. Looks doable to me.

Personally I think trying to work in an aftermarket heater box is a little silly.... IMHO put a stock heater box back in and mod ur dash as needed to make it work.... use cj defroster parts and maybe even use cj controls too

Heck, you have all 3 weeks of the Minnesota summer to get it done!

When I was making the dash, I actually tried to work the stock heater into it. Got frustrated and then remembered that I lived in southern Nevada and I was never going to need the thing so I gave up. The heater assembly is definitely made for the stock YJ dash...it takes up a ton of space on its own, but it's shaped to fit seamlessly with the rest of the hardware they crammed under there.

I'm liking the one mudbug pointed out. I'm not too proud to look a little hillbilly, and the hose defroster could be something that isn't permanently installed--keep it around but only hook it up when the weather requires.

The electric options I've seen all seem pretty garbage to me. To get any decent heat at all, they've got to pull 30+ amps. There also all cheapo chinese crap, and the fact that I can't find anything even remotely comparable made by a domestic and/or reputable company makes me think I'm up against the laws of physics with this one. I'm more than happy to be proven wrong on this and have no problem wiring directly into the electrical system, so if you have an electric idea fire away.

Should be able to fit a small aftermarket unit behind the dash... maybe run it to defrost and mount a second bigger one between or behind the seats for heat...

You COULD even get wild and put it in an box under the hood and duct it into the cab

Dude...make that TWO weeks. We're getting a NAMED winter storm this Thursday. Mid April. Could get as much as a foot of snow.

"Winter Storm Wesley." When did they start naming the stupid blizzards? I wasn't in the desert THAT long...

Mind=blown

I almost certainly have more room under the hood than under the dash.

I had a CJ7. I drove it all one winter even though the heater didn't work all that well. I wouldn't consider a CJ heater.
I'd seriously consider the heater that mudbug links to.

Or, look for a parting out YJ. 1987-1990 are one group and 1991-1995 are another. In your original post, you don't state what year your Wrangler is. If you find a parts YJ with the correct dash, that might be the simplest and cheapest way to go.

The BFG A/Ts should make a decent snow tire for you. I don't see any reason to change.

Good luck, L.M.
