lol, i know how you feel. I need to recharge mine, because when the compressor kicks on, boy you can bet that the truck is in no hurry at all. But when its off, it runs like usual. But im moving up to 4.10s soon so maybe the accel. with be a lil bit better either way.

AC is great, but only when in my truck. But I drive my jeep to work about 50% of the time and it needs recharged, but I don't want to pay to convert it, so im stuck with heat when I drive it. Oh well
