I have a '93 S10 std cab SWB 2wd 5 spd with a well built 4.3. This truck originally came with factory A/C, but most of it is now missing. It still has the compressor and stock condenser. Not sure if the compressor is any good, but could be easily replaced. The condenser is fine, it was sealed when everything else was removed. The original hoses to the condenser are also still there, it was just disconnected, nothing was cut. The rest is gone, fan, evaporator, heater core, everything under the dash and all the ductwork.
I would like to install A/C in this truck, I live in Phoenix, AZ, and can only drive it half the year due to the extreme temperatures (115 degrees+) in the summer. I would like to use the stock compressor and condenser, and install an underdash evaporator/fan unit. Heat not needed. Being a '93, it was the last of the R12 systems. Has anyone installed aftermarket A/C in a 1st gen truck, and if so how did you do it, and where did you get the parts? Would appreciate any help. Would like to get it done before next summer.
