Supplimental Cab Heater...

Does anyone have this? I ordered it with my truck but if it did actually come with it I am not too impressed. Where is it located? I am told it is a big heater under the cab to bring it to a comfortable climate quite quickly.

I have it on my truck, and I gotta agree with you. I am not that impressed with it. If you plug the truck in for a few hours before you run it, it warms up alot quicker. It still takes about 4 miles to get a decent amount of heat. I forget how much this option was, but I probably wouldnt get it on the next one.

I have the supplemental cab heater on mine, it works perfectly, and I'll never buy another vehicle without it. With the engine stone cold, the frost and snow are melting off the windshield within minutes of starting the truck. I'm over half way to work in the morning before the engine gets up to operating temperature.

I have it too. On the cold mornings we have had so far I'm not that impressed, but it really hasn't been THAT cold yet when I've been using the truck.

I have it in my FX4 Crew Cab and it works as good as can be expected. It provides heat right off the go for helping with clearing window. I don't think it was designed for lots of heat. I live in northern Canada and have already had temps in the -40+ cesius range. Just keep your fan on the lowest setting and you'll get heat right away.

F350 Lariat CC. So far the coldest has been -20F. I have my fan on the 4th speed (dual auto temperature control) with it blowing on defrost/floor.
