    alright i was just curious about the A/C in the /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif i have.
    it does not work and i don't want it to work cause it's gonna be a trail rig not a daily driver by any strech of the imagination. So should i just leave all the a/c stuff in place or junk it /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif. some of the parts could possibly go to use to somebody else but i wouldn't know how to test them to see if the could work. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    are there any pro's or con's to junking it or leaving it be? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    how hard is it to get all that junk off? also what parts do i need to take off?

    who of you have will done/do this and why did/will you?

    if your not going to use it pull it out, save weight, use the condensor for a tranny or oil cooler. I dont know the specifics on pulling it. I'm working to keep my AC even in the trail rig for hot summer days /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Happy Bday by the way /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    To make it easy on yourself, just pull the lines and the condensor. Better cooling and easier access/less clutter, but don't have to worry about re-mounting the heater core and finding the non-AC heater parts.

    I pulled the compressor, condensor, all the lines and the evaporator. I don't think AC will work on a no door no top truck so that's why i did it. You'd be surprised how much room you get from pulling just those couple of things. PLus that's just one less fan belt to worry about. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
