Thanks guys, another option i will be using on my CJ is a couple of huge nuts (get your mind out of the gutter) like 2 or 3 inch thread. Here are a couple pics of the thinnest heater box you will ever see in the works. I know it will fit with all the stock mounting holes after i do some trimming and get it an inch or so closer to the blower, I just need to get some more thin cardboard to make the next template for the back cover and up to the firewall.





I also scored a huge pile of various gauge wire

Nice heater mod. I hope it works for you. Have you looked at turning the core around so that the inlet and outlet are facing the engine heater plumbing? From the angle of the pictures it looks possible.

Yes, I will be turning it around to face the motor its just backwards now to bolt down so it doesnt fall out while i am designing. Thanks though

The heater box looks good!

I'm thinking about doing the same and started making a cardboard template, but have time before I finish it.

One question as I'm not a heater expert, buut its also not that compliacted. The blower motor has a small exit hole to blow the air. Does it matter if the heater core is right next to the blower and most of the air flows through the center? Or should the core be an inch or so away from the blower so the air expands more and the force of the air hits the entire front of the core?

I may be over thinking this since the stock heater box had only those little rectangle areas to flow air when the blend door was open?

With the core water inlet outlet facing the engine it's going to be a really clean looking install.

Iceman, you're not overthinking it at all. You definitely want the air inlet back away from the core. It also wouldn't hurt to fabricate a little piece of sheetmetal into the air inlet that diverts some air towards the part of the core not in front of the air inlet.

After all this great work I have to suggest to upgrade to a nv4500 trans...the Getrag will not be long for this world especially with any kind of added horsepower.

thanks guys, I know the Getrag might die one day, but that is not today, and unless an NV4500 falls from the sky I cant sink more money into a truck I cant use right now, budget budget budget. I agree, however, with all of my research there are plenty of guys out there that beat the crap out of the Getrag and seem to do just fine, especially with a 1st gen and a stock Turbo.

If anyone would like to see how progress has been going, this is the link to the new forum thread:

Hey! This site still works! I am toying with the idea of selling this project. I have never sold something like this before, any tips? suggestions? Encouragement for me to finish it instead?

I'd keep at it, for the satisfaction of finishing and the enjoyment of driving it. You will only the the sweat equity (theres lots) value out of this project by driving it yourself. Keep up the good work.

Well the time has come, I will be selling off this project soon, life adds lots of turns and the past few years have not turned towards this getting any more attention. I will be posting it up for sale soon to the general masses and queue the millions of questions and people asking if they can buy one part off of the entire thing.... If anyone here would like to continue this venture please PM me and we can talk. I would much rather it went to a jeep lover than someone that will just scrap everything and keep the motor...

Man, sorry to hear this, rw.

With the last 2.5 years dragging on, and then GLADI8R getting stolen, the returned, I twice wondered if he's ever going to get finished. I'm still committed to my project, but I relate very well to your decision.

Thanks Resbum, I dont want to let it go, but time is not something I have laying around and if I did, I wouldn't use it to finish this project. Best of luck with completing yours, if I ever get out to that part of the country I will try to get in touch with you.

There aren't a lot of us that have been down this road, so definitely drop me a note if we might meet up.
