XJ Overheats w/AC On

My XJ wants to overheat when the A/C is on. I Checked and both fans are going strong. I cant figure out why this would happen. Without the A/C on the temp is fine just a hair over 210. It realy sucks cause the A/C actually works pretty good, (for an XJ) but I still cant use it.


-1995 XJ Country, 4.5 Rusty's Springs and 1.75" spacers Front,4.5" leafs & 1.5"shackles, 33x12.5-15 BFG Mud Terrain T/A Locked and 4.10 geared D30/35
-1997 TJ Sport, 4" Procomp, RE Monotubes, 33x12.5/15 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R Locked and 4.10 geared D30/35.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
