    Factory A/C vs. Aftermarket

    OK... What's the consensus? Install a good factory A/C unit into my CJ8 or go with an aftermarket new version? My CJ8 is fairly original looking and has the original drivetrain, 4.2, T-176, Dana 300, blah blah blah... It has never had A/C. What do you experts think? Thanks, Chip
