Check out mojave heaters, they make compact heaters you could put in if your wanting defrost.

Just to let you know if you removed your heater core and box then you either dont have a heater or you can relocate it. I am guessing your truck doesnt ac so just relocate it to where the ac blower box mounts. Then extend your heater hoses to it. It will work fine there but you will roast your passenger.

Im just going to get rid of that unsightly heater core and get a small mojave or something similar. I can deal with no ac or heat in the mean time.
BTW clutch is on and i will hopefully be getting the engine back in next week.
