    non-ac heater/defrost/vent blower setup?

    Im looking at the http://www.summitracing.com/parts/SUM-991106/ setup and its add-ons, but I need it to just do blower for just getting some cool non ac-ed air moving around and it doesnt do it without heat. Any other opinions you guys know of? I live in the nw and dont really need ac, except maybe 4-5x a year, so adding a whole Vintage setup isnt an option and would cost me more than what I paid for the whole truck.

    Im kind of thinking that I need to hook it up so some dash mounts will just have fans sucking in outside air and a separate heater/defrost

    Did your truck come without any blower system? What's wrong with using the factory heavy duty heater option (aka heat w/no A/C)?

    the non ac trucks had little pull handles that opened up the two plastic vents in the kicks to cowl air. That should force some pretty nice air in on warmer days. However ive only seen about 2 trucks with them, so it might be hard to find a set

    I have that, but I have the blazers kick panels in there and they cover the vents and the vents were bent and non-op any ways and when I get stuck in Portland traffic (I work 1 mile off I-5 and live 6 miles off it so 14 miles through Portland on I-5) and I need some dam air!

    That's what I was thinking.

    I have those floor vents and love them, but need to remember to tell people not to use the parking brake when they borrow my truck since they think the driver side vent handle is for the parking brake *face palm* Parking brake isn't hooked up anyway.
