Recirculate is the key here. I've got a black truck as well and when its 100 out, it has a hard time keeping cool. Press the left dial on your AC console and it kicks into recirculate. Then the all the AC has to do is cool down the interior 80 degree air instead of outside 100 degree air. Once it cools down, put it back to regular outside air circulation.

The manual says not to run it on recirculate for too long... not sure why...
