Looks like in your truck "The orifice tube in your vehicle slides into the evaporator core."

not totally sure on that because i when i did mine i had replaced the AC compressor too and i think that line is pressurized with freon. So you may have to do a evap recovery on your ac system then replace orfice tube and then recharge system...IF i were you i would go ahead and replace the dryer/receiver also...its the black canister with the two metal line mounted on the firewall, and its only about $45 from any parts store.
