Northridge does not warranty them, ORO does. I went through this when the first set went out. ORO warrantied the first set, but that was it. The other three sets they told me to pound sand and pay up or go with another company. Again, shame on me for sticking with them. I have had three replacement sets since buying the first set of Lite DOTs. I am just passing along my experience with them. There are much better LED lights out there. Lite dots just look cooler. Another thing is you have to cut the stock lights harness, once you do that, your stuck with aftermarket lighting.

You might have better availability than me here, cause there's never a TJ to be salvaged. If you find one, make certain it's tight and still pressurized.

JeepAir is good stuff. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them. Their whole system price ain't that bad considering the quality and completeness.

With your experience and tools already available, it would be a quick and forgiving install for you....As a fellow HVAC engineer, you know this ain't the place to try to save a few bucks if you plan on keeping your rig.
Yeah here in CA there's plenty of salvaged jeeps around where I live, but I didn't think about the fact that they could be already hacked for pieces or not good enough to use.

I've been reading up on the install and others write ups about the kit and it does seem fairly easy so I'm thinking just fork over the money for a high quality kit and just have one don't won't give me any problems.

Thanks for the advice!

I was able to use my pay pal account to pay and got no interest for six months, which made it easier on the wallet. Total cost was $1,900 installed.
Any questions on the Jeep Air kit let me know.

Leeroy Jeepkins depends. i just replaced my evap coil and it took awhile to rip out the steering column and dash(prolly be faster if you don't have to put it back together).also from what i understand late 90's evap coils are known to leak.

Junkyard A/C vs jeepair A/C kit?

Is it easier just to go to a junkyard and rip out the whole ac out of a junk jeep or just a kit like jeepair?
