My 95 SW with factory air is my daily driver in New Orleans. There was a period when I needed a new belt to the AC compressor and when it slipped and wouldn't engage I knew it real fast because I would start dripping in sweat and would need to close the flap on the center console to keep from getting water damage on my stereo.
When the AC is on, I always keep it on full cold and highest fan speed and it does a damn good job at keeping the truck cool. It helps a ton if your truck isn't hot as hell when you get in (by parking in garage) because it isn't great at cooling off a hot truck. I have also gotten obsessed about reducing cabin heat, with dynamat, and I had my manifolds ceramic coated.

Thanks for the continued advice on the SW AC. Sounds like the dynomat is the way to go for sure in a SW.

I just put in a unit from Safari. It was a little pricey, but it went very easy and works excellent. The first day I drove it was over 80 and was cool inside.

Be careful or you know who will be saying, "this 90 was too hot, this one was too cold..."

Next you'll be worried about getting a callous on your hand from changing gear in a stick shift.

The lt77 hurts to shift. The r380 is just right...

I never ran AC in mine and I don't have working AC in any of my other cars. When i ran The AC to test it in my SW it was Cold! I've never had an issue of in the 80-90* F NY summers with humidity in either of my rovers. But then again I roll around Phoenix at 110*F with the windows down.
