I'm looking into putting a/c into my jeep, as I live in houston, and it swealters down here....I don't have the money for a new system...so I'm looking into an old system...Is this an endeavor I should take?...I'm no hardcore mechanic....but I an a weekend warrior, so I know enough to get it running when she dies on me....What would I need to pull from an existing system? Should I stick to a certian make and model when looking for it? like an old 258 ford or old TJ? Any help would be great....

You can snag a Sanden compressor off of any AMC vehicle that ran a/c CJ or Eagle. You'll also need the brackets to attach it to your engine. You'll need the condensor and the freon holder as well.

That's the engine side.

You'll need to find a CJ a/c setup that connects and runs the length of the dash. It will have the electronics, fan motor, vents, temp gauge, etc.. on it.

Collins Brothers has all of the stuff you need

I used to own two CJ's...Perhaps a 3rd is in the future?

I put in a system from Arizona Mobile Air. It uses the sanden compressor but mounts differntly than a stock unit. The inside components look different than stock also. It works pretty good; cost around $700 new acouple years ago.
