    If it checks out and it is a bum compressor, might as well replace the accumulator, and liquid hose at minimum

    Checked the voltage from where you would jump start the AC compressor and it comes
    Out to be 4.83 the same as my step dads truck which does work.

    did you check amps? normally voltage could stay close but amps is what actually does the work.

    Also, before you resort to replacing the compressor, connect a set of gauges to it. If the refrigerant is low that will cause the compressor to not come on. Its very possible that you have a bad AC hose that you touched or leaned against while installing the fans and that caused the refrigerant to leak out. I had a vehicle before like that, it was OK as long as you didn't touch the hose. If you touched the hose it would hiss a little bit at the fitting. I ended up having to replace the line.
    I doubt that that is your issue, but you never know. Wouldn't hurt to check the pressures before throwing a new compressor on there.

    I agree with Dubyagee, Definitely verify voltage at the compressor.
