CJ7 A/C issues

Hi, I'm new to forums so forgive me if I make any mistakes in posting questions. I have an '83 CJ7 Laredo that I have been working on for a few years and pretty much everything is up and in running order. It is now starting to get really hot in AZ and i want to fix my A/C. I got the conversion from R12 to R134a at a local trustworthy shop; however, my condenser is leaking from pretty much all possible locations. Where can I get a condenser to fit a CJ?

Welcome to the forum, nice to see another AZ jeeper.
Since you are in Globe, I would try Merle's and see if they can get a condenser for you. Also check with some of the A/C shops in Phoenix or Tucson and plan a road trip. God bless.

Welcome to the forum! Dave bought a complete AC system for his '83 a while back from Nostalgic Air Parts / Jeepair. Here's the post where the parts came in and he has some commentary.

So I ordered a condenser last year and it was the wrong one. We ended up welding my current one and making it work for a while but it wont hold a charge. Is this the proper one? I wanna know before I order it haha
