Default AC issue

Hey all. New member here. Just curious, is everyone happy with the AC performance in the quad cabs? Mine has been topped off with R134, but the performance seems lackluster. I replaced the fan clutch also. On a long trip, once it gets the cab cooled down, it does ok. Thought? Is this just typical for these pickups?

Default similar issue

I have a 2001 5.9 and it is weak sauce when it comes to the A/C. I have a vacuum leak somewhere though so I may not be getting the full power. I have heard that these 94-01 years can be kind of weak.

I have a 99 V10 and it works great, and we live down in the Arizona desert. Wish I could tell you we did something but it's been this way ever sense we got it.

Was yours converted to 134 or did it come with it? Reason I ask is I've been told the compressor and condenser (or evaporater, can't remember which) is different on the 134 systems. A mechanic friend told me that back when I was switching an 88 Cherokee over, had a heck of a time getting it to cool off.

debo 2,
our second generation dodge ram's have a vaccum only activated a/c system,with vaccum lines running to the engine.
also you might want to take out your blower motor from it's housing and take a shop vaccum cleaner and clean out the underside of your dash/blower motor housing area as over the years dust & debri can get packed in there and no way to get out.
you should notice a big difference in the output thru the vents
