A/C cooler question

Its been a long HOT road but my A/C is finally working.
It blows pleasantly cool.
Can anyone offer tips,tricks,advice on how to get it to blow colder??
I think the 11 miles I just drove were the most pleasant since I've owned it.
Thank for any/all input.
Steve

all that was completed this morning. Turned out there was a leaking line and it was too close to heat. Had it made a bit longer to route it away.
Its cool I would just like it colder.

Keep in mind what your dealing with. The system isn't the best to begin with. I'll swing by next week to see how cold she's blowing.

The A/C that LR installed isn't all that efficient. Look into a drop curtain to lessen the area that needs to be cooled. Not much else you can do to cool things off better with a freshly tuned up system.

Yes a drop curtain made a huge difference in my 110 for both heat and AC and noise

In my NAS 97 i turn the knob almost one full revolution past the highest setting, it seems to get a lot colder at this setting.

To be fair I have an internal roll cage and the velcro straps wrap around this. Here are the pics. Poor but best I could do.

The alpine windows let in a lot of sun, rovers are like greenhouses

Personally, I'd say tinted windows don't reduce the inside temps at all.
I have an older white Lexus. A few years ago I had all the windows tinted because I didnt want sun damage to the interior.
I can say that here in central VA I dont notice any reduction in inside temps; in fact, I wonder if the darker windows make it hotter!
But the Lexus A/C kicks ass and gets cool in minutes so no big deal...
Just dont spend the $ tinting all those windows thinking it'll be cool and cozy in there.
Then you cant see out at night for shit.
