Try pointing the AC vents in your car to the floor and see if your AC cools your car. It won't.
He said it did. I don't know really. I figure if it blows hard enough it could be somewhat useful with full doors and a hard top. I was just trying to be helpful. Haha.

For the money you will spend on AC, I would spend it on a beater car with good AC and leave the Jeep at home when its to hot. I live in an area that does get hot in the summer I just run door less with a long bikini top, and hang a leg out the door to get the natural AC. If it is still to hot I buy a big gulp place it between my legs and find the nearest AC. Do not buy neoprene seat covers they make it miserable in the heat.

either buy that ac from the 88 wrangler on the other page of hte thread or live with no ac. temps are the same here in south texas. summer is from april to november with temps in the upper 80s and lower 90s with super high humidity. i have ac but put a screw through my evaporator and have been not to enthusiastically searching for a new evaporator. i have driven my jeep to san antonio and to brownsville in the dead of july and august temps. drink lots of water, wear sunglasses, get a full bikini top, and drink water the whole time. you will be worn out when you get where your going if the ride is over an hour because that type of heat beats on you even when its windy, the city i live in is the wind surfing capital and people dehydrate left and right from not enough water and being outside. you're going to need water, period. if the wife is going with the kids and i, we take her pt cruiser. if its just us, we can hang in the wrangler with the top on and a cooler of waters.


i had to google the humidity here because i didn;t know it. we are the 6th most humid city with an average humidity of 78.5%.

for chritmas, we were in the rio frio river skipping rocks and wading for fish because it was almost 80 degrees

Install the 460 air conditioner. 4 windows down, 60mph, if you can do 60mph.

But seriously windows down isn't that bad. And if your ever going on a long road trip, you can get these http://www.coolshirt.net/

I think its funny how people defend their case so much in 100+ degree heat telling us try living in a warmer place. Try the UP where its 20 to 40 below 5-6 months out of the year then it hits summer and we get the 100s too yea you don't have it that bad believe me.
