Clicking noise when running A/C or heater?

I've noticed this since the first day I drove my truck off the lot. When I'm running my air/heat I hear this clicking noise under my truck somewhere that loops every 5-10 minutes while running the A/C...

Any ideas? Anyone else is experience this?

My buddy's ranger does it too and I'm just curious to see if it's fixable or known.

More than likely that is your A/C clutch cycling on and off. That is normal.

^^x2! It's perfectly normal.....most likely what your hearing is the a/c clutch kicking on and off. You'll also notice an rpm change when your at idle.
