    Hi all I just recently had an ac compressor fail on my 08 liberty 3.7 ohc. I'm wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a bypass pulley or info on bypassing it all together. I found info on the older patriots but not this era of them. Would it be the same pulley set up as the older ones? This is just a beater of mine and I would rather not spend the money on replacing the compressor and recharging the system. Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum.
    I've searched high & low online for almost an hour, & can't find a working A/C bypass solution for the KK.
    I'm not saying there isn't one out there, just a lack of information.
    Hopefully one of our KK members can recommend something.

    I currently have the AC compressor clutch pigtail unplugged because the compressor is unhappy when it tries to run. Luckily the bearings in the clutch still turn freely so I don’t have to do this mod! Fixing the AC is on my list for this spring before it gets too hot.
