Suggestions for cab heaters?

Got my snow plow, new tires last week and now I need to decide about a cab heater. Will I even need one and how many btu's should I get?

A guy I work with uses a propane heater in his golf cart, has an adaptor that fits his cup holder. I've been looking at the ones that hook to the coolant lines, once installed I think it would be a lot more convenient and wouldn't have to worry about running out of propane or carrying extra bottles.

Defroster would be nice also.

I have been checking out heaters also... I think it will be nice when out ice fishing. I had a buddy that bought a heater core for a geo prizm or something and upfitted it to his 2007 Prowler 650

I put this in my machine and it is great.
Put it behind the dash so it just pops up out the dash a few inches and looks real factory also has vents for floor.

That's looks great, according to JC Whitney you also need Danhard Heater Control Kit - JCWhitney for new installations. I didn't see the control panel in the photo just the fan switch, did you something different?

Put in a ball valve from the plumbing store to control flow to heater.
Just went with a hi/low rocker for a fan switch.

Also put a electric water pump in for a boost in flow up to the heater.

I ordered a heater from Summit Racing today, they're having a sale. Now I need to get the flow booster which one did you get?
