I'm looking for a good heater that would fit up in my CJ5 cowl. Naturally one would say "just get a cj5 unit" I would, but I've hacked my jeep up so much it wouldn't fit if I tried.

I'd like to use one that gets heat from the engine, not 12volt heater. I want to go this route for two reasons, to get some of the heat out from under the hood(sbc), and I plan to do some winter wheeling. Heats always nice.

Whats a good 12volt junkyard car for a donor heater?

Rear passenger heater from an 84-89 Toyota 4Runner. Compact unit, self contained, should work.

Surplus M151 heaters have been used in a lot of other applications, because they are compact and cheap (atleast they used to be cheap)

I never used one myself,
but it seems to be the 'go-to' unit for adding heat to any Mil vehicle where the original style can't be found.
