It's really not as bad as people think. Set aside a couple days & label everything in bags.
Another tip is to remove the steering wheel from the shaft just behind the kick plate.

Honestly the hardest parts for me were separating the two box halves, then putting the box back in the Jeep (required some extra hands to get the nuts started while I held the box in place)

Some will disagree on this, but my pop was an AC&R mechanic and I’ve been around that all my life. Unless you leave the evap/compressor lines disconnected several days, there is no need to evacuate the system. Residual Freon will slowly evaporate for several hours and will keep the moisture out if you keep the lines capped tightly. Add a two ounce oil charge (it comes in a small pressurized Freon can) and then add Freon back into the system to achieve proper pressure. Minimize the time you have the lines uncapped to the absolute minimum and it’s about 99% certain you won’t have moisture problems.
Anyone else try this?

There is absolutely no reason that a vehicle should be designed like this, utterly ridiculous. I did one of these in a Dodge Dakota several years ago and it was similar. At one time I owned a 1989 Ford F250 that I had to replace heater cores in twice. It took all of 30 minutes, just a couple of screws behind the glove box.

Got mine done, mostly in one day. Did not remove steering wheel.
Here's the write up I used, plus I added some of my own notes.

So, my heater does not blow as hot as it once did. It is no longer able to cook me out of the cab. And, that's in Phoenix were the winters are very mild. Also, I started smelling coolant every time I ran my heater last winter. Is it safe to say I'm going to have to do this core replacement?

Noticed the coolant puddle in passenger floorboard yesterday, so heater core has been added to my already significant to-do list.
