A few 4.0 front bracket questions.

I am building a 4.6 for my yj. My question is since I am running electronic fans and no AC can I delete the mechanical fan/ compressor bracket? the bearing is junk and I do not want to go to chrysler to get the new bracket. Has anyone done this?

edit: You can get rid of the compressor as long as you dont change the direction the water pump turns...

I rarely wheel my jeep and when I do I wouldnt ever need OBA. It is basically just a daily driver. The compressor that came with my donor cherokee wasnt the good compressor for OBA anyways. So im basically stuck with that big ugly bracket. Hence why I want to delete it all together.

as long as you find the right length belt, there's no interference, and you can keep it tensioned, there's no reason not to. Mine just has a dummy blank pulley insted of AC.
