Roll down the window.


An air conditioning system needs a compressor, evaporator, condenser, filter/dryer and hoses to connect all the items together.

If you were to spend some time researching everything you could do it yourself. You would need around $600 in tools to do the job.

Also, unless you spend an arm and a leg on new components, you'd be looking at used parts. And, given the quality of the components used in the OEM system, it's questionable how much life is left in the system.

The compressors in these trucks are made by Delphi, a major supplier to GM and they barely last longer than the warranty.

*EDIT*
I see you have a 1st gen: you're in luck, they still used Denso compressors. Toyota cheaped out on the 2005+ 2nd gen.
