I do have to say, having it heat up within the first mile of driving is NICE!!!!

I'll keep you guys posted.
Awesome!

So, what's the ambient temp around you with the Jeep heating up in only a mile? I know I would enjoy that kind of a warm up in the winter. All I got for warm up aid's are the little tubes on the carburetor body and the heat stove from the exhaust manifold to the bottom of the air cleaner. Those are more so just for runability, rather than warm up.
