As well as they hold their value you're likey better off trading it in on one with a/c.

Yup. That was a mistake. Of all things possible to do on a JK, AC is one that isn't worth it. Trade it in, it will cost you a lot less.

Agree with the other opinions, much easier and cheaper to go find one with it.

My understanding is that adding A/C to a JK is so difficult (tying the system into the JK Computer being one issue that no one has been able to easily resolve) that no one offers a kit to do it. Labour alone is rumoured to be about 16+hrs by technicians trained to install aftermarket kits. Google "Jeep Airconditioning" and you will find sources that offer kits for all years but JK's.

You are not the first person to buy a new JK and regret not getting the AC option.
