Well if you look at the first pic you see the 2 lines going into the truck. Thats for the heat. If you look at the top of that box under the hood you see a metal pipe thats bent shut. That was for the a/c. The black box is the evaporator or whatever you call it.

I thought the heater core was under the dash? And would taking it off require disconnecting the heater hoses?
