Heater Box Assembly

This is entire assembly from blower through matrix. The harness wires need to be spliced to your own harness and the cables, clips, and ferrules have to be used from your original. Could use new foam at the bulkhead and blower connection.

Just removed from truck and working perfectly. It blows hard and hot!! Guaranteed.

If you add up the box, matrix, blower, and harness you are into $1,000.

Asking for $400 plus shipping.

Just curious, what do you have there instead? Upgraded heater of some sort?

The story is too funny. It's been f-ing cold here in Chicago and I'm running a diesel......imagine a cold, cold drive to work. So I figured essentially EVERYTHING in my truck has been replaced/restored......except the heater box/matrix/blower. So I ordered a new one.

I blew and entire Saturday changing it out and long a pint of blood on skinned knuckle. I fired it up. And guess what................NO DIFFERENCE.

At that point, exhausted and humiliated I wasn't about to take it out again. I am picking up my marbles and going home. Hence the sale.

I was just politely told that my assembly may be a bit overpriced........sorry.

New price $250/or best offer plus shipping.

John if it's any consolation I paid 300$ + shipping for mine.. I don't know if I had been ripe off but, better that then buying one from Rover's North @ 599$ that exclude the fan! ..

If you're looking for an auxiliary heater I have a kick as@ matrix. Need to make a box and hook up a fan to it but, That matrix would makes you feel like driving in the tropic zone!

Heatercraft has an unbelievable high output heater with a box and fan. Problem is adapting it to the bulkhead. I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard to fabricate an "adapter" that would connect to it but I'm honestly exhausted at this point with everything I've already done. So I took the easy route.......and freeze my ass off.

Here is the unit.

Here is a Jeep guy that did something similar to what I thought of doing.
http://boyink.com/cj6/heater-install...t-heatercraft/

I would hook up one of outputs to connect to a Y-piece and directly route to the defrost vents and leave the other one open to the "aquarium". Should work well.

What's your idea???

The thing is that a 200tdi doesn't produce that much heat. But I think (my own theory) that up to a certain point the engine would have it's water going to the original matrix and auxiliary one and have not enough heat to get it to the engine radiator (thermostat will stay close). So you would be cooling your engine by these two matrix without using the radiator. As I said, up to a point. Where I live, in winter, it's minus 20-30. The engine is not even able to produce enough heat for one matrix.. The reason why I have a webasto cabin heater and a pre-heater...
