my 2001 dak paper factory service manual. the 4.7 is NOT shown with out the AC. it only shows it with what we would call a LONG belt. BUT the 5.2/5.9 is shown with out an AC, with the AC pulley gone, and a shorter belt going from pulley 5, the power steer pulley straight to the idler pulley, #1, with pulley #3 AC compressor gone. it looks like the belt would miss the AC pulley if you ran it stright from power steering pulley #5 to the idler pulley #1, this is on a 5.2/5.9. on the 4.7 the belt routing is totally different. on the 4.7 it looks like you could by pass the #7, AC pulley and go from the water pump pulley straight to the #6 tension er pulley , and the tensioner will work fine, just by pass the #7 AC pulley, no need to remove it. course youll need a shorter belt. i hope i have been clear good luck.
