Quadratec has kits from like $950 to $1100 that include everything you need. I was thinking about adding it to my 93 but realized that with 4 little beavers under the hood, that AC would take what little bit of power I have left....
My bud got a whole system off one in a junk yard for 150 bones,that included brackets and all.I think all he bought new was a dryer and lines...It might be alot cheaper to get all the main components from a junker and just buy what ya need new,at least you know all the stuff will fit and if it is a pick your own that will make it easier when it comes to hooking it up on your rig.You will already know how it went.....Just a thought..maybe lol...Joey
I live in sunny Florida and I have used my air. I have a 4 banger and have been thinking of removing mine. With 31's there is just not much power left I think. The 2.5L is a good little engine with a lot of torque, but its still a wheezer.
one other thing to remember on old A/C systems is that they use R-12 re-fridgerant. Newer systems use R-134a, can't remember the years they switched over, but getting the old r-12 systems recharged is damn expensive if not impossible anymore. You know.. gov laws and all.
I know the after market systems have gone to 134a, so that is probably your best bet.
i had a/c in my 90 2.5 wrangler. it served me will while sitting in traffic going home from the outer banks. top down and a/c on max pointed at seat level. ahh what a relief it was. and during the winter with ac cranked all the way to the warm side it worked quite well to recirculate hot heater air. real good after a day hunting in the dismal swamp.
