a/c add on kit.

OK so I bought my 00 jeep tj about 6 years ago when I wads happy go lucky and it didn't bother me there was no a/c in it as I live in San Diego. well after the years I have notice jeeps don't keep the heat out like most scars and never cool off inside. so now I am looking for an aftermarket kit or system whether factory or some gadget don't care just want some cool air. anyone know the best way to achieve this

Two main things you'll need (that you probably don't have) are a set of A/C gauges and a vacuum pump.
Other than that, just the refrigerant.
There are tons of youtube videos on how to vacuum and charge A/C systems.
Also, read over the install instructions (there's a link on the Jeep Air website in the description of each unit) to see if there's anything else you might need.

I paid to have it installed, $800, and the shop had it three days. It it designed to be installed by the DIYer. I did not have the time to do it.
