I am getting ready to finally pull the trigger on a new jeep but I can't find one EXACTLY how I want. It has come down to one with auto ac but no remote start and one with remote start and no auto AC.

Does anyone know if you can add the factory automatic AC to a jeep that doesn't come with it?
I know you can have the remote start added for a reasonable price but I am leaning toward the one w/out the auto AC simply due to color.

If so, do you know roughly how much it would cost?

It his would take some research but I feel it would be better if you added remote start. I have factory remote start. The range is not very good. So you can have a better remote start by installing a aftermarket system. A/C will be much harder and more expensive to add vs. a remote starter.

I am really thinking this as well. One Issue is the one with auto ac is Copper Brown. I am not sold on the color and would really like to see a couple in person, especially modified ones.

just order one. Only takes like 4-6 weeks to show up. Then you get EXACTLY what you want.

But to answer your original question: adding Auto A/C would be, IMO, a MONUMENTAL task due to possibly needing a new tub side wiring harness, not to mention all the other potential differences between the two.

The factory remote start, from what I understand, can be added in about 30 minutes via a simple plug and a reflash from the dealer to turn on the remote start.
