Possibly, but not if that location is where your motor mounts are! You would need to move the pass side mount to the middle of the block.

I eventually will mount an A/C compressor up on the top front of the intake, like the parts used to mount the compressor on Case tractors and Freightliner FL70 style trucks.

It depends on two things. One, which set of engine mounts you use (mid-mounts or front mounts). The second factor is frame width. Some people have notched their frames to fit Dodge brackets.

I personally always use the mid-mounts. I feel it distributes the weight of the engine better. That is just my personal choice. For AC I like to use the factor Dodge parts when I can for price and availability. I have used custom brackets in the past for mounting AC in tight locations like early Broncos.

Check out my website. It shows my Jeep with the A/C installed.
not alot of belt contact on your alternator, i would be worried about slippage although an alternator shuoldnt be hard to drive

nevermind I seen later that you changed your alternator location, that is likely the reason for the squeling

Yes I did change it. I also just finished changing under the hood again. I inverted my Exhaust manifold like it should be and use the Freightliner a/c / alternator mount. I will try to post some pictures soon.

I think the alternator is the hardest to drive, other than the A/C
