No Air in Texas

I just moved here from Wisconsin. My TJ was great for up north, but not practical for living in Texas. No Air Conditioning. I have a 2004 TJ, 4cylinder with a soft top. I have been going topless to get some air, but I don't think I can drive fast enough to stay cool! Does anyone have any advice? I found a garage that will install a/c for $2,200+. Help!

The best i can suggest is to drop the top and use a spiderweb shade to keep the sun off.

Welcome to the forum. When I first moved here right out of college I was broke and drove a black mustang with maroon interior, no tint and a clogging coolant system full of rust. I had to drive with the windows down and heat blowing full blast to keep the car from overheating while I got enough money to fix it...so I feel for you. If you're in the DFW area you could go topless all summer...we likely won't get any appreciable rain for the next 60 days or so.

I have no AC either in my 2004. I don't drive it every day. When I do though I either remove the doors or the whole top. I keep something overhead though for shade.

I still sweat profusely, but it's a jeep and I believe that the people I'm around have become accustom to my stink. Its a jeep thing

FYI, you can get everything you need to install the AC yourself from jeepair.com. If nothing else, it gives you some prices to compare against if you have a shop do the work for you.

I live in central Texas and have ot used the air on my jeep in over a year. Get yourself a spiderweb shade for up top and take your doors off. You'll be just fine, besides it makes you enjoy the a/c that much more when you get where you are going. By the way, welcome to the forum and to Texas.
