Taking off add-on AC?

When I bought my 94 YJ it had the add on AC installed, the man told me the fan was not working right on it so he just didn't use it.

I would like to remove it as I wouldn't use it anyway, is it a pretty hard thing to uninstall?

It's a dealer add on so I would imagine there are just a few bolts on the underside to take off. Then probably just disconnect it.

There's a number of screw's that hold it to the dash. That comes out easily enough.

There are two hoses that come through the firewall. I cut those, then pulled them through the firewall. Make sure you have the system discharged first.

Depending on your goal, you'll then have to remove the compressor. That'll take a new belt, remove the ac compressor, then I think there's an idler pulley that goes in it's place, could be wrong there.

Thanks guys, sounds like an afternoon of fun lol I just think it's pointless to have an extra device running off the pulley that I don't need, I'm definitely not going to be running AC in a wrangler

Here's a couple of links that may help:

My Jeep Air Conditioning System Installation. - JeepForum.com

Removing an AC Unit - JeepForum.com

my factory ac disassembled

I've seen some installation instructions for the Jeep AC unit somewhere - you might be able to find them if you look around. Disassembly would be the reverse, of course.

Also, I find my AC marginally useful at stop lights during the summer. The YJ AC unit is pretty wimpy and aimed too low - it keeps your knees cold, but not much else.
