    I'm going to install a rear heater in my FJ. &nbsp:Does anyone know if I can use a "T" fitting instead of buying the"Y" fitting. Also, can I just use heater hose instead of the rigid formed lines?
    Thanks,
    Ed Long

    Thanks, I thougt so, but I hate doing things twice. I know some of them came with Y fittings. Come to think of it, the longer distance to the rear heater offers more resistance.

    I use the normal rubber heater hose for the rear heater in my 40 ... They are fine, and it doesn't seem to matter if they get crushed occationally.

    I have used regular heater hose, too. Works well.
