Good Auxiliary Heater for diesel defender?

Has anyone had luck with an inexpensive auxiliary heat system for their diesel defenders?

That is a big question......

You can replace the stock heater with a larger and more efficient one. I can point you to some options.

You can add a second heater. Again lots of choices.

You can add a diesel fired coolant or air heater, both are a bit pricey but great to have.

On a 90, adding proper insulation and sealing is the best place to start and is adequate down to -30 or so with the stock heater.

Correct. There is not enough power available from electricity to make any difference.

I personally have a very serious system, over three times the output of the stock heater. Much more than needed at any temperature.
