Dude,
GTO's jeep has one of the most powerful ACs I have ever come across. Dippy Revvmaster and I have 1st hand experience. My Contessa's AC is amazing and GTO's jeep's AC is even better.

Exactly my fear when I was fitting the air-con in my Jeep. But there was no way I would have driven in Bbay without an air-con. When I took the a/c off a donor Sierra, I thought it would be enough to just have cold air blowing on my face.

Butttttttttttttttt dude, trust me. 12'o clock noon...bumper to bumper traffic...people in the front seat of my Jeep cant bear the air-con on full blast. I actually have to set it on 1/3 range. All thanks to the boys at milestone for the amazing job, so much of trial and error and finally ending up with custom fabricated a/c slots.

And yes, I am using her as a daily driver, the summer included. Somehow the feeling of invincibility takes over you in the Jeep, with all those ill-mannered buffoons on our roads.

But I will be packing her up for the monsoons. Wont drive her a km till the rains go away.

I guess one helpful thing is that hot air rises.

GTO, no monsoon madness in your jeep? are u trying to keep her clean since she is still "new" this year?

Whoa.......!@!!!!!!

Thats a bit to much for me to stomach! actually way too much for sun protection IMO, given that there are far less expensive good quality alternatives.

Thats just my point of view.
