    Default Tech tip... Friday?



    Yeah, it's been too cold lately and my TJ has been colder than a witches... you know. Having heat issues when it's cold out really sucks, but how do we keep toasty in our Jeeps? looking at all y'all with soft tops, you know what I'm talking about.

    I solved my heat issue with one simple trick! Big Cold doesn't want you to know that you can cut up a foam pad (Harbor freight special) and put it in front of your radiator. See below:

    I just run a second heater and added heated seats when I redid the upholstery. And even then I accept freezing my ass off in the morning even when wearing my 800 down belay jacket, and sweating sitting in traffic on the way home breathing fumes. As a friend with a highly modified cj3b says, it's a jeep, misery expected at times. Ive also taken to wearing ear plugs a lot...

    I really don't mind the cold too much but there's a threshold crossed when it's under 20* for several days and my anger starts to keep me warm.

    Get a new Jeep with the 2L... that thing is sweaty all the time! Fans running to cool the thing off in -25 degree weather! Okay, that's a big exaggerative.
