Need A/C Help!

I am in need of everything to put air back in my J-10. My baby girl is going to be riding in my truck with me, and the weather here in KY gets into the triple digits in the summertime. Have to get my air going. Does anyone know where I can get the parts, or point me in the right direction? The truck originally had a/c but now everything is gone. Including mounting brackets. JC whitney wants an arm and a leg for the parts, and they don't have brackets. No local junkyards have what I need. Any help would be appreciated. Signed, frustrated in KY.

cr@p! Someone has more jeeps than me! I only have 4 and selling 2 of them. I know the best bet is to use the sanden compressor that's setup for 134a. Not certain on brackets. Use a new condenser, new lines, drier. If the evap coil has been open I'd replace it as well.

Due to the stand alone systems in the FSJ's. Any a/c system will work, be it a j-truck or Wagoneer. As super siad use the Sanden compressor. And get everything that touches the salvage system, controller too, and replace those components mentioned.
Mine has been converted to 134a, and it is cold in the Wagon even on low settings. The one good repair the PO did was to spend $1300 on a/c system at the Jeep stealership

Yep mine was converted when I got it been solid for 6 months no leaks. Ill be doing electric fans with the top end rebuild it will blow colder at idle and low speeds as 134a compresses at a higher pressure than 12 and likes as much condenser surface area as you can fit. Blows cold. One thing I like about the under dash air is it has killer airflow and not passing through thin cheap plastic ducts that are baked with dash heat.
