Anyone have a easy homemade cab heater for the midSize rangers?? I've seen on for the Yamaha rhino that uses a shield of sorts with tubing going straight to the dash.. And it gets it's heat from behind the radiator if I'm not mistaken. Without going into the cooling or heating system..

The only issue I could see with that, and this is why I question this.

During the snow season, for me anyway... The snow comes off my plow, hits the radiator and steams up the cab windows. I should imagine if you ducted in, you would most certainly pull more steam into your cab, if you have a cab of course.

I am looking to seal up any air intrusion into my cab from the front. One thing you could do, is to pull air from under the seat into your cab, but you have to watch for exhaust leaks. Or shell out a couple of hundred and install one of these... http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-991102-1/overview/

Since I've snorkeled my rig, I've thought about putting a Y pipe in and diverting the clutch exhaust (filtered) into the cab. A simple butterfly inside the Y pipe should be able to divert the air. My daughter-in-law sat in the back and was quite warm trapping the heat with a blanket from the heat coming off the clutch exhaust tube. :indecisiveness:

Hmmmm...now that is an interesting idea! Remove the existing exhaust duct and extend it into the cab behind your legs! Could actually pipe it to the unused intake grille!

Cheers

I just put a shroud over exhaust pipe and vented into cab under seat with a 4 inch pipe with a fan in pipe,works great

Nice job trailcutter, exactly what I was thinking about when I was talking about the old VW heat exchanger.

This is in between the high dollar Side x Side built and your home made. Just to give another idea.

Prior to just springing for a Firestorm heater I kicked around the idea of fabricating a steel box around the exhaust pipe and plumbing air from that box to the cab interior with a muffin fan pulling air into the cab. In the end I chose the Firestormsince it doesn't deface things. Yes, you have to cut some holes but the system doesn't look home grown.
