2.5L 2000 ranger a/c on and off at idle


My truck idles at a decent RPM it feels like. problem is, when A/C is on at idle, the truck cannot pump out cold air. the compressor kicks on and off constantly and the air starts being just a vent and not A/C. As soon as I take off and am riding, the compressor stops kicking on and off and cold air starts coming out.

Could it be an a/c clutch issue? I can sit there and rev it a little higher at idle and the on and off continues.

anyone had this issue? (5 speed if it matters)
