Hi, I bought my X about a month ago. 2002 SE S/C w/ 102k miles. I installed Cooper Discoverer AT3s last week and hope to get a lift installed before next fall.

My most urgent issue is my A/C. I live in the Phoenix area. It seems to work occasionally. I had a shop do a quick diag. They said it seems to be electrical. no leaks detected.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Welcome. By work occasionally, do you mean it blows ice cold sometimes?

The compressor doesn't always turn on when i turn on the system with the control head. When it does turn on it is not "ice" cold but does blow cold. I think it it is an issue with the compressor/clutch or a switch.
Don't be so quick to change the compressor. Mine just started shutting off for the same reason.
There is an a/c high side pressure switch near the evap coils under the dash below the glove box. That pressure switch is most likely the issue on a vehicle that age.
If that pressure switch is changed, also install a new receiver dryer. The dryer is that aluminum looking can in front of the radiator.
