I wheel in the desert & have seen two methods that look like they might help... one is a pressurized multi-nozzle mister like you can buy at Home Depot, which I saw zip-tied to the roll cage. Misters can be highly effective in really hot conditions, I regularly see them in outdoor seating areas of restaurants in hot locales. The other was one of those collar thingies you wear around your neck. You soak it with water & it cools by evaporation.

we saw those today at big 5 i almost bough one haha
I've used my AC maybe 5 times since I've owned it and I bought it in '00. Just take out all the windows and upper doors. I leave the top up (or use a bikini top) because I don't like the sun beating down on my bald head.
I hardly use my A/C because when I do I can feel it rob power from my little 4cyl. Here in MS you just have to accept being sweaty during the summer I mean you can ride in a nice comfy airconditioned car to the store here and be dripping by the time you get inside anyway so Ive developed hot weather habits. I take 2 or 3 cold showers a day sometimes during the summer and use gold bond medicated body powder (the green kind full of menthol) all over. And I wear really light weight shirts my favorite is an LLBean called the "summerweight poplin" theyre really nice shirts and not very expensive, and I try to aviod food I know will make me stink if I can, that way when I do get inside and start to cool off I wont feel so dirty. Ive just accepted that im going to pour in the jeep.
I live in an area of Australia that regularly gets 42 degrees or a bit over (107 Fahrenheit) and since I only just got my tj and don't own a soft top yet I roll down the windows.....sounds stupid but with that plus my arm half hanging out I manage
Mind you....my ac does work but I enjoy the window down so there's no point having it on
i have one and it does help a lot but i am in the military and the barracks don't have any storage for my hard top
ive seen guys take the back window off the hardtop and the doors, I understand the no storage thing I used to live in an apt complex, other suggestions, buy a frameless soft top and rent a storage unit to put the hardtop in when not in use.
Misters work. But I would caution anyone who uses then that you must keep the bottle, lines and nozzle extremely clean.
They can get full of bacteria and mold. Especially legionella. Then the droplets are small enough to be inhaled and they can get deep in your lungs. In a dirty dusty environment that risk can be a lot higher. Legionella grows in the ground and water droplets act as a scrubber and pick up the dirt. It's a great recipe for bad things.
It doesn't need continuous pumping. You pump it up to pressurize it & it will continue misting for quite a while.
thats what we were trying to figure out is how long it will mist that sounds like the best bet even if you put ice water in it I'm not complaining i don't have ac but when in our uniforms and its 120 out and nowhere to put the top it gets pretty hot
