    Why not just change your cabin air filter?

    you can purchase some air freshener specifically made for your air conditioning. Could be the mold/mildew buildup on the condenser that is making it stink. There are products you spray in the vent to help remove that mold.

    I don't know about that. Do you think that would take care of the smell?

    All Factory for now, LOVE it that way
    what i have done with every trk i have owned is cut a/c off a few minutes before i get where i am going and have it set to fresh air intake. i have never had a smelly problem.

    In my sig
    Also another tip is to turn off your a/c button about 10 seconds prior to turning off your vehicle. It helps dry out the system to prevent mold from forming.
