    Would there be any benefit in ac cooling if the ac lines coming out of the cab to the compressor were wrapped in a heat shielding sleeve??

    I never considered that, if you do it. Please report back. The high side line will be hot, I'd probably skip wrapping that one.

    Are you having trouble cooling the truck down?

    I doubt it would get you much in such a short distance.

    If the evap coil was at the tail gate it might be a considerable saving

    That said it is not going to hurt .

    Keeping the Condenser clean would help more .

    Not really. I was just trying to think of some ways to help the system. Good call on the "high side line". My wife has a Nissan Altima and the lines are exposed on it as well, so maybe that's the best way.

    More of a assembly line thing the line gets stopped enough .

    It would be a pain to wrap .
