You mean... you want to get rid of the belt going around the A/C compressor? If so, you'll need to get the pulleys and belt from a like engine that has no A/C pump and put them on. note: if you're just trying to save gas or something, simply not using the A/C will accomplish the same thing. The belt free wheeling on the pump uses insignificant amounts of power/gas.

Answer

In most cases, if the serpentine belt from a non-air conditioning equipped motor (same motor as yours) will follow the same route with the omission of the a/c pulley and not touch the a/c pulley at all, then yes, you can omit the a/c. There should be no effect on the normal operation of the engine. If the a/c pulley is in the way, removing it may allow the necessary clearance.

Can you bypass the air conditioning compressor with a serpentine belt on a 2000 Dodge Dakota V8?

Yes, but if you unplug the wiring to the compressor, the pulley will simply idle without causing the compressor to do anything, unless the pulley clutch is faulty and is constantly engaging the compressor, in which case, you will have to bypass the compressor pulley or replace it. If you must bypass the air conditioner, you will need a shorter belt (by at least 12 inches). It is possible that the stock belt for your motor without air conditioning option will fit, try that option first. Otherwise the proper fit will have to be determined by trial and error or use string to trace the new route and measure its length. The new route should be exactly the same except bypassing the compressor.
