AC Bypass?

I did a search, but came up empty-handed. What exactly is the AC Bypass?

I often wondered that myself. I think it just means "no AC".

If you can vary the amount of cooling with a temperature control, and the A/C uses a passage to a mixing chamber, you have a bypass system.

The build & price Jeep site shows the AC-Bypass as an option only when AC is not selected. Chosing AC disables the AC-Bypass option. Only being an option without AC is what has me confused.

In this context, you may be right. On several searches I found references to "Jeep A/C bypass pulley. Ask a sales rep. or better yet a parts guy.

The Air Conditioning Bypass basically means that the venting and wiring

vehicle with ease, but as the vehicle does not have the air conditioning
components, the system is "bypassed".

So in other words, no AC.

I guess then that owner who didn't get AC and later want to add it could - for about 1 million dollars.
