a/c swap

Can I take then ac out of an 89 wrangler with the 2.5L, And put it in my 82 cj? I know will have to fab a new mount for the compressor. Will the under dash unit fit in my jeep? I can get the unit for free and it works good, should I do it?

Re: a/c swap

Is it an under dash unit as you said or a factory in dash piece?
Under dash, no problem.
Factory........well......all the underdash heaterbox stuff is different.
But I'm sure you could modify and make it work, .....you're a jeeper[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img].
For real though.. I don't know how easy this would bee w/o the complete underdash(firewall) box and all the controls.

Just waiting for the surgeon general to ban Jeeps for being too addictive
