Thread: Mojave Heaters

  1. #1

    Default Mojave Heaters

    Are the Mojave heaters worth the money? I'm putting a fiberglass tub on my CJ5 and mounting the original duct work into a fiberglass body can be troublesome since the inner tub dimensions are smaller than a stock tub. I was thinking that a Mojave heater would be easier to mount.

    Do you get much more heat out of them? I'm running a GM blower motor now and it can get pretty hot.

    Anyone know of any issues with running them or hooking them up?

    Now that I had some time to research, I found mixed reviews. Some recommended the Summit heater over the Mojave for lower price and more BTUs and some recommended the Blazer Motor upgrade (which I already did). I was just thinking of making an improvement if there was one and getting something easier to mount in my fiberglass tub.

    Not sure what I'll do yet. I guess I'll wait until I try to put it in.

    John, which one does Summit sell?

    I to offend wondered if those heaters would put to much on the system, or do you hook them up directly to the battery.

    I have one. It was much better than the factory pre 72 heater but those are horrible. The biggest issue I see is that it only pulls air from the inside of the Jeep. It doesn't make my Jeep "hot" but then again my jeep still has a snap top that is in questionable shape and no seals on the doors of any kind.

    I didn't see any specific model listed in the posts that pulled up in the search. But it was frequently mentioned. These posts were back from 2008 so maybe Summit doesn't carry it anymore.
