Is this a scam?

The CL add has garbage and no pics.

Looks like a stand alone unit.

I actually talked with one of the early owners of this truck WAY back when. I want to say he was asking like $60k when it was or sale.

been for sale on eBay for about a month or so....same price. Seems kind of steep considering the non stock parts, and "restore" it has had.

here's that AC unit on fleabay, looks a fair bit cheaper than a factory AC unit and heaps easier to install!

that headliner a/c looks like the best option yet for adding rear a/c to a 110. wonder how it would could be tied into the existing front under dash system?

I'd say it would just take some wire runnin. should be the same connection to the controls. I'm sure any AC specialist could do it.

Someone be a guinea pig on the overhead unit. Im sure it needs a condenser line run to it and you could wire up the controls to the front easy enough.

Wiring is child's play. I was referring to tying it into the condenser lines to share the compressor. Wondering what that would be like and if there would be a US to Euro sizing issue on the connections.

You know Chevy (and Ford etc) have solved this. I'm guessing it's not that expensive either. Has anyone raided a Suburban or Tahoe at a wrecking yard and transplanted the AC (front and rear) to a 110?

I still have my '99 Tahoe and was thinking sell it to fund more projects, but now I'm thinking pull the Vortec and transplant the AC to the 110 and sell the rest of it off as parts.

I'm almost to the point of tearing it a apart

The Tahoe/Suburban has a relatively simple layout and a small blower motor in the back.

Surely the parts are cheap enough (new or used) ?

It's just a matter of running two more AC lines and upping the capacity of the compressor. The fittings themselves are actually quite common.

I looked into the Tahoe rear air unit. It's a big unit and would not mount easily. Its a shame because it is cold and blows like hell.

Ah ok.

I haven't pulled the cover off of mine but I didn't think it was very large. The area it takes up seems smaller than that Red Dot though!
