Anyone ever put A/C in a CJ-5?

Greetings from Phoenix. Tomorrow it is going to be 110 degrees with 30% humidity (monsoon started last week). Needless to say there is going to be any driving of the CJ this week. So.......

Anyone have any idea if it is even possible to retrofit a '74 cj-5 with air conditioning? I might put in a 5.0 Ford truck motor that has an A/C compressor on it, but what would it take in the cab? Was there ever an aftermarket unit for Jeeps?

Need to know, Jeepchick wants a '76 Bronco with A/C if I can't get the Jeep to cool off.

I can't remember the name of the company but if you look in magazines like Hot Rod, there is a company that advertises in those mags that make air conditioning kits for what ever you want.Hope this helps you out some.

I think I remember seeing a unit in the Quadratec catalog. Also (?) has units for sale... both of these were pretty high dollar if I remember right.

I think the company that makes the after market AC is called Antique Air. I was thinking about installing an AC in my 63 CJ5. My buddy had a 64 ford F100 pickup and it had a unit that bolted, in one piece, to the bottom the dash, but he sold his truck before i could take it. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
