    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.

    70601 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16.
    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jegs Hot rod heater. I purchased this for my Atlas 3000 side by side. This heater is amazing, puts out plenty of heat. Drove around the first day with the doors off. I highly recommend this heater, if you like to stay warm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from this little heater is the bomb I have an x show 95 s10, all the heat and ac was takin out, installed behind the radio pointed straight up toward the defrost vent opening. Have it blowing up and all under the dash.jeggs didnt sell the bulkheads i wanted to go thouth the fire wall, or speed unlimited .this heater it hot, u have to install a shutoff valve to control water flow, I just turn it off when it gets to hot, the low speed on the fan is all u need.this is a great buy for any project....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product & value Installed this, Instead of $800 +- to replace factory heater core.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It runs quiet and puts out more than enough heat. It fit under the dash of my 1946 ford coupe, and with the defrost vents and a floor vent in place, even on low speed it puts out ample air flow and heat. It's far better than any "hotrod" heater. The motor is rubber mounted and almost silent. Great solution for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot rod heater It's works really good. I had to customize just a little bit. I would recommend for any older vehicle . Better than the factory one that I had. Fits in a tight spot with a little work. Thank You very much.

    I have an ACU-HEAT 300H heater on my 1999 Moomba Outback wakeboard boat that has gone out and I would like to know if your model 555-70601 heater be used on a boat as a good replacement option? They both look identical. Thank you.

    Are there replacement heater cores available for these or do I have to purchase a whole new unit?

    Would 2000amps be sufficient? I have a 2000a lithium battery with a usb port.

    Asked by: fjliving
    A normal USB connection won't support the Amps this heater needs to run properly.

    Can I plug this heater into a 12v usb port?

    Asked by: fjliving
