Default adding a/c

Has anyone ever added a/c to a non a/c truck? I have a 97 xlt 2.3l and honestly I dont think it would be that hard. Just curious if anyone has done it.

it's not too bad. best thing to do is find a donor truck you can sit next to yours. basically, you need everything under the hood, and the hvac panel for the dash.

hello i just want to join to this discussion, im trying to put ac on my ford ranger 1997 right now I only have ac compressor rebuilt from a reputable store, when I bought that truck, it has AC panels already inside, do i still need to get the one from the donor truck? and also, i dont have the wiring pigtails for the ac compressor, can i grab the one from the donor truck as well? i found one in the junkyard, its 1995, would that make a difference?

any advice highly appreciated! TIA!
