I did manage to find some pretty good info from past AC inquires on this site
(thanks to those who have come before me); that being said, it would be great if someone had a specific parts list (brands, part #, hoses, etc) for all the needed apparatus to do a DIY installation. Much appreciated!

ranger,

 

i've been on this site for about 2 years now and to date, no one has done that.  there's a bunch of great threads out there, but none are as complete to the small part level (screws, nuts, bolts, with the quantanties) you might be looking for.  I do recommend though searching for The Hack Mechanic's A/c posts as well as HobieDave (the A/C bracket making fella).  HD has a great pictorial of what he did on his photo page.  Search for it!

1) You need a original evaporator. Should be pressure tested and new evaporator switch installed. Behr or Clardy

2) You need a Hobiedave AC bracket for the compressor

3) You need a Sanden 508 compressor. Compressor must be filled with the right kind of oil for either R12 or R134a freon. Depends on which freon you intend to run.

4) You need a hose kit which includes the dryer and the safety switch.

If you intend to make your own lines, you need a line crimper

5) You need a condenser. As big as you can fit in the front space of the 2002. I have not installed mine yet but in using approximately this sized condenser.

6) You need a pusher fan. Again appropriately sized for your condenser.

Here is a helpful generic diagram of how the system is plumbed so you can picture what you need and where everything goes.
