Removing ac components?

My ac system is shot (hole in the condenser) and i want to remove all the ac stuff under the hood. Can i just pull the lines out and pull out the compressor and condenser? Will a belt for a 4.0 w/o ac work or will i need to get something to put in the compresser's spot? Anything else to consider? Does the stock compresser put out enough for oba and running ait tools?

yes you can take the compressor, lines, and condensor out. The belt for the non ac 4.0 should work fine.

The stock compressor should work fine for OBA. I'm guessing its a round Sanden unit? They are not as desirable as Yorks, but they will work.
Check out I believe there is some info and links on converting those compressors to OBA.

The YJ has a diagram under the hood for belt routing for both A/C and without. Check to see if your XJ has it.

I just finished tearing the rest of the A/C system out of my Jeep. All that is left is the compressor for oba.

Make sure the system is not pressurized when you start to take it apart. If your condensor is shot I am assuming that it is. If not, any A/C place can drain it for you.
