Removing AC?

Hi, Just a quick question, Can I simply use a non AC serpentine belt when removing the AC from a 98 4.0l? I have not removed the pump yet as I need to drive my jeep tomorrow and thought it better to ask from someone who has done this. Thanks, John

Thanks, I'm not sure if the 2.5 and the 4.0 use the same front pulley setup. John

It wont be a problem. I did just that on my 97 4.0.

Just curious but is there any advantage in bypassing the compressor? I never use it anyway.

No real advantage, Mine doesn't work and it will make working on things a little easier Thanks, John

That's good to know, still to cold told know if my AC works in my TJ( I don't really care if it does or not). If it doesn't work I'll do the same and bypass it. Thanks for the reply John.
