The quoted post (on another forum) was from 2006 and unfortunately the link above no longer works so we don't know the details. But it seems to indicate that the transmission cooler section of the radiator wasn't successful in heating water.A friend in our Club tried this route with his Explorer. It didn't even come close enough to getting tap water warm enough, let alone icy mountain water. He got a heat exchange coil and ran it that way. It wasn't quite enough. So he did both. He has a brief writeup on our site:
Definitely a mod I WANT!!
Icy cold water to borderline too hot.
That one has a nice looking heat exchanger and it looks like they have options for higher capacity ones as well.
I posted the Land Rover water tank to see if anyone knows if there's something similar for the Wrangler, but I don't personally need one - I'm happy with a 20 L Swiss military surplus water bladder. The sun heats it up when it's on the roof rack and it's got a thermometer so I can tell when it's hot enough.How much water exactly would you want to carry for this luxo-barge shower system?
There are secondary fuel tanks that might offer some ideas for mounting location and capacity.
No, not planning any product development around water systems, just curious to see if there's anything in the Wrangler space and if so, where it would mount and how.Yes, i'm familiar with your setup - I think anyone reading this thread would be - that was a rather pedantic interpretation of "you". I presume you're asking for product development purposes, not your own use, hence my question.
While it isn't made for the Wrangler, this gent built a nice setup on his JKU!I'm not aware of any custom-fit water tanks for the Wrangler (other than the AEV bumper tanks) - does anyone know of a Wrangler-specific tank on the market?
