the door above the motor is the recirculation door. it's job is to shut off the outside air and grab cold air from the cab to keep cool. start the truck and put the fan on high on regular ac, not recirculate. give it a minute and switch it to recirculated air - you should hear air moving different and the air should blow harder.

if it is the door not operating correctly it will be 25 for the part and around 5-1/2 to 6 hours of your time with a helper. it is a big job but not terribly hard within itself.
otherwise it is at least $400 from the dealer.

if you decide to tackle it, feel free to message me - i'll help you any way i can.
