bypassing ac

I have a 98 zj 4.0 and the ac co.densor has holes in it. I was wondering if there would be any benifit in bypassing the compressor?

I eliminated the entire AC system on mine with an eliminator pulley from Napa, I'm sure it probably freed up a little parasitic loss but not really worth mentioning, it did stop the endless belt squeal.

If I were in your shoes I would do an on-board air conversion.

Can anyone direct us to a more complete "how to" on removing the AC system entirely? I want to get rid of it all, the compressor/condenser/evaporator/AC lines/the works.

Jeep magazine did a nice writeup on converting a AC compressor into a OBA system . Check them out, otherwise if you buy a complete system it will be $$$$

Edit: oops you want it gone lol

Search button buddy. Type it in. I found one in the ZJ disc. and a guy made one for under 100$ No tank or anything fancy, it worked well and was simple. Badass really. Check it out

As far as taking it out... just get the new pulley, unbolt all the old crap and throw it away, install pulley where the compressor used to live, install belt... enjoy
