Hi i'm a new owner of a 1993 jeep yj 4.0 and I know it's winter right now, but I wanna know how you guys are able to tolerate the heat in the summer. My jeep has no a/c and I live in Arizona so 110 is the average in the summer during the days.. What should I do to be able to drive in this heat? Haha
I drive an 1 hour and 15 min one way to work everyday for 16 years.13 of those years without a/c.I live in MD.It is seasonal out here but in the summer it gets plenty hot.The humidity is what kills and there is plenty of it.Been driving the Honda for 10 years.Bought it w/o A/C.Plain jane work vehicle.Guess you get used to it.

Usually I take the top and doors off and just use a bikini top from late April til around early September. Drink plenty of fluids and don't wear shirts that need to stay dry while you drive. When I get to work or wherever I'm headed I put my shirt on, so it doesn't get sweaty.
This summer I left my top on, and just took my doors off. It wasn't too bad, I felt like I got just as much air while moving, and I had a lot more shade.
Sunscreen, baseball hat, bikini top, and Nice icey bev's are my go-to's. Oh and dont drive in your work clothes. They get sweaty n smell. On the freeway its not bad but the stop -n-go is what gets ya. A cig-lighter fan from Autozone might help cool your sweat down lol. Gotta love the PHX haha
ACs are over rated. the only reason i would have liked to have one in my jeep would be to turn it into oba. just take the top and doors off and get a bikini top. i deleted the AC system in my car a long time ago and couldnt be happier

You also may be able to find a used AC system or get one from the junkyard and just pay to have it installed.
They were popping up on eBay some time ago, OBA is more important than AC in some places. :P
