It would help if you could post a picture of what you are looking for. Some of us might have one lying around and not know what it is. Thanks...-RG

The gas heater that is mounted forward of the windshield on the drivers side.

I wasn't aware of other heaters being used with the arctic top enclosures.

the confusion starts when you don't state which jeep... m38 or m38a1...

Hot Water heater was rated for temperature ranges greater than +25F operation, the SW Gas Heater was for colder climates. Either type could be installed on Jeeps with canvas or the arctic cabs.

Gent's,

The heater is for a 51' M38 that has an 'Arctic Cap Enclosure'. This is a hard top......

The heater will set forward of the windshield on the cowling area aft of the hood.

The heater uses gasoline for heat.

The heater usually weights around 175# when shipped with all of the duct works.

The heater need not be operable since I in sunny Florida.

Thanks for everyone that looked. I am glad to say, one is being dug out of storage and will be on it's way.

A big thanks goes out to Midwest Military.
