Collins Bros A/C Kit?

I am thinking of getting an A/C for my CJ, I see Collins Bros has kits for $895. Has anyone put one of their A/C kits on? Also how are they to do business with?
Appreciate any information on them.

Never used or seen their kits personally, but have you looked into getting a used factory unit? You might PM CJDave and ask him. I know he looked at a bunch of different ones before he found a used stocker unit.

Only a guess, but Collins is probably just reselling kits from someone like www.ackits.com where they're a couple hundred bucks cheaper.

Re: Collins Bros A/C Kit?

Taylor,

I just sold my complete & working OE a/c system off my 82 Scrambler for $400.00 plus shipping. Judging from the interest, I might have gotten more had I been interested in holding out for highest price. I sold it as a result of numerous inquiries after mentioning on another Jeep BBS (CJ-8.org) post that I had recently removed my system.

Well took the plunge and order an A/C kit from "ACKIT.COM" the place 80sCJ7 told me about, it was $690.34 plus shipping, I also order an electric fan. I got to get to work on finishing the body work and get it painted, but just keep finding more thing I need to do before I paint.
