This is the current state of my TJ. All that is wrong with her is a leaky heater core.
Steering Column Out
AC System Purged and Disconnected at the evaporator.
Cooling System Drained
Entire HVAC Box Out
And this is on a vehicle that is supposed to be easy to work on and a part that is a common failure on all vehicles. Modern, ok in this case semi modern cars are hard to work on. At least this gives me a chance to clean out all the dust that comes with being topless.
On a plus note, I scored a factory center console for her for about half what the normal market price is. I have been patiently waiting and looking for over a year. They typically go for well north of $250 and there was no way that I was going to pay that for a used interior part.
