Inline block heater

have you guys seen those coolant heaters that circulate the fluid and heat it at the same time?

i wanna put one on my 08 but i would like to hear opinions first. how they work, and usually how many watts for a good one.

thanks

I looked at a Webasto unit for my last Ranger - I saw it years ago on Shadetree Mechanic. It's a really slick system running off your main fuel tank. If memory serves it was about a grand.

While I never did get one installed, from all of the literature I've seen on it I believe it's the best way to go for winter heat without running your engine. The units come with a programmable time control for preheating or can be operated via remote I believe.

they work good as long as they are installed low enough as to not airrate and burn out,but nothing beats having a remote start/security system for ease of use.m2c


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.
