Units are readily available from a number of vendors. This is just one of them but I believe the prices to be fairly equal between sellers.

Question Can you, add stock AC?

I want to add AC to my 97 TJ. Is it possible to add a stock unit? Basically, get a stock AC compressor and bolt it on, then vent it. Possible? Yes/No, Impossible/Hard/Easy?
Thanks

Just picking. I knew what you meant. I was only poking fun about it.

well... how about some tech??

Since I'm adding a V8 that has an AC compressor I knew for sure I was hooking it up. Only problem I found was the HVAC system does not have the coil for cold air to pass through. Which means.... you need a whole new HVAC system. If you know what that means... then yes you are correct! You do have to pull the dash and replace it all. Look on your firewall. There should be 2 hookups. Kinda hard to see in this picture but you won't have them there.



Right up close and out of focus on the bottom left of the picture.

Don't know. Sure don't mind A/C when I'm in someone elses ride, but it doesn't really seem to bother me unless i'm sitting in traffic. Then I get a little irritable and have visions of driving over the little honda's and hyundai's in front of me.

Clifford, that Swap is lookin good boss.

well... that isn't my jeep. That is project Rock Mafia from BTF. I knew that had the connections in the picture and my jeep doesn't.

That is a ram jet. I have a LT1 but it is still on the garage floor. UGH! Too much to get done! LOL
