Cables into bed6305 viewsThis shows how I mounted and protected the cables that run from the front of the truck into the bed.
All under-truck cables are in some kind of conduit, or have a shield between them and the ground.

Ceramic Heater5648 viewsThis is a 1500W Ceramic Heater mounted where the old Heater core was.
I kept the original overheat switch from the ceramic heater, and added another (at the top) just to be paranoid.
Since I'll be powering it from a 288V pack, I only need to use the center and outer connectors to the core.

Old Heater Core4996 viewsI was really surprised at how easy it was to get the old heater core out of the truck.
Just pop out the glovebox, and remove the panel behind it.
That uncovers the core.
