Boy, that compressor did give you some room. I am trying to decide by spring what to do in regards to compressors. I think mine is leaking, used one from the junk yard. The one that came with the motor also locked up. Not having much luck and need to stop with the used ones.
While they work well there are compromises with the GM drive. The passenger low AC compressor mount has never been optimal IMO. You need to run the AC lines to the driver rear of the engine compartment, compressor to UCA bracket is close without a lift, compressor to frame clearance can be an issue..... We do run the GM drive and it works well, we fabricate PS and AC lines, rework the wiring, run a compact compressor, watch the PS pulley to PS gear clearance..... In the end the GM drive works fine but is more upfront work.
For 8 years we ran the JK accessory drive layout and it has a lot of advantages - better clearance, the use of stock PS lines, AC hoses, electrical connectors, use of off the shelf hydraulics systems..... The steel brackets worked great but could be a PITA to set up properly especially when we ran the crankshaft position sensor on the balancer. I have many JK's with over 100k miles on the steel brackets.
Our new billet brackets solve a lot of issues, better clearance, no adjustment just bolt on and they look cool. They will be offered in polished aluminum and anodized black with silver engraving. The Gen IV truck brackets are being installed now and the Gen IV LS3 brackets will be available shortly, the LS3 runs the same driver side AC bracket as the truck.
I don't know what accessory drive you are running but there are several good options for the passenger side low mount that are reliable.
