AC in 95

How hard is it to take the AC out of my truck. It works fine but I honestly never use it and would rather the leg room. Is it something I could do on my own?

Yes it's easy. I took pictures of the removal of mine in my 94 if you want to get an idea.

I never used mine either but I have to admit I came up with the idea of removing it when I was running without door bottoms for a few months. Since then there have been a few occasions where I have regretted it. Oh and since you are the original owner it doesn't sound like you ever plan on selling it, but I assume it lowers your resale value as well, just FYI.

It is not really worth it unless you have a tall passenger in the truck all the time. It is a bit of a PITA to do and it does leave some holes.

Good to know about the holes. I will have to think about it. Without the top on it is pointless as I don't commute in it.

Don't worry about holes as you can get trim to cover that area.

Other thing it is good for, is when it is really hot, I will turn the AC on, but at the warmest temp setting and this causes the electric fan to run all the time keep the motor cooler without the burden of running the compressor.

No, it is just normal outside air.

It's not soooooo bad. Most of the really nasty heat comes from the cats, and some heat shields takes care of that nicely.

Between the dash vents, real roll-down windows, the sunroof, and the sliding rear windows, you move a LOT of air through the cabin.

Took a good look at the AC this morning and figure it is not worth messing with.

I have some other ideas though about stuff I want to do. Reading some older posts so I dont ask a lot of questions that have already been covered.

I have long debated taking it out of mine... I do not use it ever... Not even in the SW, I did not like not being able to hang my arm out the window.
