Would it be that for the M151 series jeep it was meant for the Vietnam war thus you didn't need a heater for that environment ?

Mark...that's exactly what happened. Vehicles came from the production line without heaters..... requests for heater kits had to be justified based on intended vehicle deployment zones. Likewise with canvas and vinyl doors and side curtains.

The M-151 was not meant JUST for Vietnam, it just happened to come out at that time. It was meant as a replacement for the M38 and its variants. And the M38 was deployed and configured for all kinds of weather from jungles to the arctic.

Finally got all of the behind the dash work done, decided to leave the lgt.sw; ign sw. & heater blower switch in the R.O.P.S. installed location despite the fact that I don't have R.O.P.S; where does the heater operation instruction data plate get placed on the dash ? same question for the vehicle plate?
thanks again

Whoever designed this heater kit has a hate-on for life and probably chuckles to himself at the thought of someone actually installing it. One of the first things I noticed is discrepancies with some of the measurements. I work on aircraft so I learned a long time ago to take measurements directly from the components and their final placement prior to drilling a single hole. Lines and circles from a sharpie are way easier to remove than misplaced holes. Measure twice, cut once.
