Re: YJ accessory bracket install

I know this is an old thread, but I thought I would share what I have found so far. I have a 2001 Jeep Cherokee which of course has the coil pack. With the YJ bracket and the coil pack the A/C compressor cannot be mounted. The compressor hits the coil pack on the back and side.

I'm working on making an adapter plate to move the A/C compressor to the left to clear the coil pack.

Or go with the Viper coil. Google "viper coil mod talyn", if memory serves. Might be easier than moving your AC

That is awesome. I actually just swapped in a AC bracket from a '93 or '94 XJ. It's basically the same bracket on the '01 but with the idler pulley.

So, when adding the AC bracket from the '93, with the idler pulley and removing the clutch fan from the belt routing... I could re-use the stock belt.

Re: YJ accessory bracket install

A 4 cylinder XJ fan shroud would put the fan center so you have an option for non electric fan...

Sorry to dig up a very old thread, but I was wondering... I am in the process of getting everything I need to do this mod so I can run a Taurus fan. My question is if you ended up running the 87-90 upper radiator hose for this and if so, how is it working for you?

That is exactly what is needed. It routes around and behind the AC compressor on its way to the radiator. I did build a bracket to mimic that found on the early XJ's to support the outside (side closest to the fender) leg of the hose. Mine was installed about six years ago and working flawless.

Thanks Techno. Do you think that a bracket to support the hose is really necessary? Also, are you running your pulleys like ehall is in this thread? If so, how's it working out for you?

I *think* I used a 95+ upper hose. It was a little longer so it moved back off the bolts, without going all the way behind the compressor
