4.0 belt routing. AC vs non-AC

95 4.0 with AC.
I still have the compressor mounted and the belt is running it although I do not have or plan to run the AC. Matter of fact my ARB twin compressor is sitting where the AC lines would be if I was.

My question is, if I remove the AC compressor do I just get a non-AC belt or is there more to it that needs to be done?

I'll hang up and listen.

My Jeep build. :)

Non AC belt and I think there's a pulley that needs to be run. My jeep has the little sticker with belt routing information still on it, lemme pop outside in a bit and I will send you a picture of it.

You would bypass the compressor idler pulley too.
You should have 2 idler pulleys, one for the alternator and one for the air.

Here is a pic I used when I went the other direction, from no ac to a belt driven oba(air conditioner compressor).

You can see the set up is the same excluding the 2 things(comp, and idler in red).
