Man, that's what I wanted to hear. The only info I could fined, was for the replacement on a newer Jeep with AC. they were saying it was an 8 hr job. I was getting mentally prepared for a chilly winter.

i did mine on a 90 yj with no ac.ac makes it a bit more complicated but its only four bolts to take out the guts of the dash. and plan on buying new heater hoses, u will most likely need to take the battery tray out. u can leave it in but its way easier with it disconnected and set aside. u also have to disconnect the cables from the dash control's. also on a side note another person makes this job way nicer.

Yep, nothin like that extra set of hands. I got an off spring, just for those occasions. Be well.
