They run back to the rear hvac. Don't know what the consequences of removing them would be other than the rear hvac would not work.

since my wife got SUV we dont use the commander for the kids so the third bench never gets used so i dont need air back their and i would avoid cousing damage due to tire rub.

But you don't know how it might affect the forward hvac.

I'm not sure it's all that complicated. Costly maybe. I'd imagine you'd just need to have the A/C evacuated of refrigerant, and then get those lines cut and capped, pull a vacuum, then have the A/C recharged with less regrigerent, probably 24 oz instead of 32 or whatever the rear A/C models take.

Some people still use the rear A/C even when people aren't back there, it helps to cool the Commander much more quickly.

I am not interested in removing them; but relocating them which I think someone else on here has already done.
