I have 2 little boys and a wife that love to go on Baja rides and it's starting to get a little too cold unless I can warm it up inside.
I have the Baja exhaust so not heat there and I thought about a gas heater like a Thing. But I have a 1 piece front end my gas tank is behind the back seat. I have been thinking about one of those 12V Heaters but I'm not sure please help me out. Thanks

Run an external oil cooler inside the car with a fan on it. It works surprisingly well.

great idea but I have a hard enough time getting oil temp to 180 with out a cooler. I was told that you want to get oil temp. to between 180 and 210 every time you drive it so you burn off any water in the oil.

Wow- that's something. Do you only drive it in Flagstaff in the winter? The oil cooler inside is a neat idea though.

Welcome to the site, Jeremy. If you get a chance, post a thread in the New Members forum, and show us some pics and specs of your baja.

Oh- visit the Garage and start a page there too!

I have a dog house cooler and full flow case and no external cooler yet. I have the hardest time getting it too 180. I have a 2276 with about 8:1 comp. My temp sender is just below my dis. This is just driving around Mesa. Now when I'm driving most of the time It's at about 3000 RPMs just to keep up with trafic. I have a 002 with close 3rd & 4th gears, at 3000 RPMs 4th gear I hit a whopping 47.5 MPH on GPS with 30" tall tires. This is why I say oil cooler inside is out of the question.

Those 12v thingies are no good. It is just enough to keep your screen clean and if your lucky your hands warm. Mine even draws so much power that my alt light lights op a little. Perhaps buying a dog is an idear? Smile

hey, ive seen a kit on jc whitney thats meant for water cooled cars, but its basically like a small heater core with 3 speed fan and vents and hoses. i think im goin to try and adapt it into my baja because it gets pretty cold here as well. just run oil lines to it, my oil gets pretty hot so i think it would work. anyways its something to consider. heres a link. theres a smaller 1 too.
