So here's the story...
I took my jeep to the shop, so they could put my 350 V8 LT1 and NV4500 tranny in the jeep. They said that they'd keep the AC Pump on the engine, and toggle a switch to the dashboard of my jeep, so if I needed to air up my tires or something I could toggle the switch, and take the hose and do it myself.
Kind of cool, not a complete need but they are doing it for no additional charge.
Also, I have been told that a lot of people are doing this now.
I thought it was pretty cool, we'll see how it turns out -- I'll be sure to post pics when I get the beast back from the shop.
