I don't think that would be safe.

CO (carbon monoxide) poising especially in a closed cab type setup and all

people have died from the CO gas on the back open deck of houseboats

Most of us use this summit heater. Easy install on the 660's....little tougher on the 700's.

Just a follow up on this thread. My buddy had a sunflower lp heater head in his soft cab with a 10' hose and a 20 lb tank in the back. Worked good the first year, but the beginning of year two wore a hole in the hose close to the heater head and whooosh. He barely got out of his cab before getting burned. Had little damage to his rhino but only because he was right outside his garage and had a fire ext. handy. Former FireFighter, too. So moral or story....dont do it. Those little heaters for your cup holder look nice, but make sure you research them....some have shut-off sensors so sensitive you cant even move the rhino without it shutting off. I have a buddy heater (same cupholder principle) and it doesnt stay lit when moved or jarred, so I installed the summit heater this fall. My 2 cents.

cab heater

Hi guys
This what we use in the wilds of northern Alberta
Total cost 150.oo and about 5 hrs to install
12000 btu and it doesn't hurt the charging system
It has a 3 speed fan
It sure is nice when I'm plowing snow and hunting in the fall
to have the heat on. Also when working the rhino hard, it's addition cooling for the engine.
