Default A/C Removal on 99

I am thinking about removing all the a/c components from my truck for several reasons. A-the truck is more of a mud/off-road toy than a street truck, and B- I rarely use a/c, even on my DD. I was just wondering if there are any disadvantages of removing the whole a/c system? I am aware of resale problems, but don't plan on getting rid of the truck, and if/when I do it wont be worth much anyways. I do know it would make working on the engine alot easier (about to go replace header gasket as soon as I am done on here) without all the a/c lines and compressor sitting on top.

Don't see a problem with it. You'll have to get a different belt. And depending on where the a/c is, you may have to get an idle pulley. It'll definitely give your truck a few more horses and, like you said, make it easier to work on.

I plan on just running an a/compressor bypass pulley so i can use my old belt for now. I just need to grab the tools to pull off all the a/c lines and then it is all coming out from under the hood.
