A/C pump into onboard air

Has anyone turned there A/C compressor into an air compressor for on-board air? I'm thinking of doing it for my jeep. I don't have A/c now so I won't have to worry about draining any fluids or pulling out any lines. Looking to see what needs to be done for it to work well. I think it could be a cheap mod to do without dropping a big chunk of cash.

I've thought of doing the same. If it's hot the top is off anyways so I wouldn't using the AC.

After some more research and looking into Stu's article I have decided that using an Co2 tank or a VIAIR setup would be cheaper.
