This truck, has never had sufficient cooling in the rear ac unit since day one.
I recently replaced the front evaporator and everything forward after a compressor bearing started to squeal.
Pulled vacuum and charged with approx 55 oz of R-134a, and ran a leak test. System is still short 9 oz (64 oz required) as of today, but no leaks detected.
All tests today were at 95 F ambient, 75% humidity
Front unit running only, 50 low, 250 high, 70 degree F vent at 2,000 rpm.
Front and back running, 45 low, 289 high, 70 F front, 80 F back at 2,000 rpm
Something doesn't seem right with the temps vs pressures, and I don't want to top off the system if I'm going to need to open it up again.
I'm afraid I'm going to have to replace the rear TXV, just a feeling.
Felt the lines into the unit in the rear, only slightly warm. Line out of the rear is slightly cooler than ambient.

You need to get the proper amount of refrigerant int he system to have a proper diagnostic test. If it not leaking fill it up and get back with us.
