    JEGS Hot Rod Heaters will keep you warm on those cold days, simply connect plumbing and wiring directly to your cooling system for immediate heat. The blower unit blows fresh air through the heat exchanger, elevating the air temperature, which then exits through the outlet louvers adding strong and consistent heat to any vehicle. You can even use these auxiliary heaters as an economical alternative to replacing a worn-out or hard-to-reach heater core. Heaters are available in a variety of sizes and styles with multiple speeds and adjustable settings. Defroster and Louver/Vent kits are available separately.


    • Direct Connect to your Cooling System
    • Strong & Consistent Heat
    • Use to Replace Worn or Hard-to-Reach Heater Cores

    JEGS EZ Kits are designed by JEGS professionals to ensure that you get all the correct parts you need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built, easy to mount Bought for a home-built tractor project. Very impressed with the quality. Comes with nice sturdy mounting brackets, three speed switch and a nice long wiring harness. I was able to mount my heater on the back outside of my cab with only the two three inch round ports entering the cab. In this manner it will only draw outside air which will help keep the windows frost free. Had out this weekend, was several degrees below zero, outlet temp was 150 degrees. Very happy with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and compact. I was expecting to have problems with the installation, but it went in very easy. This is the first time ordering online that I have not had problems installing, I would recommend this particular box heater(JEGS 70601 part no.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this to take place of the factory heater in my 97 f150 after $1400 replacing it twice. This thing is awesome. Think I will never have to run it on high, heats great

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great heater I installed this into my rzr 900xp with eps and it fits right in between the eps and the glove box. difficult to mount but not impossible. Lots of air and heat out of this heater. this thing cools the engine in my rzr without the fan kicking on. I need to put some cardboard in front of the radiator to keep it hotter. puts out a ton of air. the only problem is the instructions for the wiring is backwards the med is fine but the low and high are opposite orange is low and yellow is high. after putting the connectors on they are extremely difficult to get off. all in all great choice for a heater.

    Can this heater be used on a John Deere 1025R tractor (diesel)? I would hook it up to the battery. I have a 40 amp alternator.

    Asked by: Rudy2
    If you have 12 volt battery power and a water cooled engine than this can be used to supply heat.

    I live in northern wi and it gets down to below zero throughout the winter. Can this unit be mounted under the hood and piped into the cab or would there be too much heat loss?

    Asked by: Flip32
    The unit would be mounted inside and the hot water lines will be used in conjunction with the current heater hoses.
