Thanks! :-) That's exactly why I stretched it at the lower deck rather than the upper. I wanted to take advantage of the space inside the Jeep rather than have it go to waste underneath. I plan to eventually build a lock box to fit between the new seat brackets under the seat. Here's one of my early sketches back when I was brainstorming on where to cut the tub. image-4163764145.jpg
Inspired by the amo boxes built into the floors in the early CJs ;-)

UPDATE: I just sent my seat bracket specs off to the metal shop. I thought I'd share them for anyone planning to or in the process of stretching across the main floor. Feel free to use them...maybe don't steal my logo though... image-1522590183.jpgimage-2076553952.jpg image-1099704895.jpgimage-2834457775.jpg

Not exactly an update,

but have any of you TJ guys had your AC coldness fade on you? I replaced my condenser awhile back just before I made the big cut but never got around to having the system evac'd. And recharged. This past weekend I took my girls out in the Jeep and they were sweating to death. (it was 94deg out) so I decided to stop and have the system serviced. It's cold now but not as cold as it used to be. It used to blow so cold that condensation would build up on the center dash vents if you had the windows rolled down. I usually don't trust service stations with my Jeep but these guys seem pretty professional so I have no reason to thing they did anything wrong.

It's just all those extra cubic feet you have in the cab that have to be cooled now, Jay.

To much oil in system, Compressor wearing out (loosing pressure on high side). Condenser clogging up slowing down flow, cooling fan not cooling condenser good enough. Many many reason she could be not blowing as cold. Doubt the few extra feet of space would make a difference. I'm a technician and work on lots of A/C

Ha! I think he was just kidding about the extra space. However, over the past week or so it seems to be gradually blowing cooler. Maybe there was a blockage somewhere that's breaking up now. The condenser is new. I replaced it about a year ago. At any rate, it's blowing cool enough to satisfy my daughter in the back seat so I'm gonna let it be for now I think.image-4071754851.jpgimage-4114556537.jpg
