    Does anybody know if you can remove the A/C condenser without completly removing the raidator?

    Go ahead and take your shots about wanting the A/C to work, but when you work on a consturction site for 10-12 hrs and it is in the 90's when you go to work and 100+ when you leave, a little A/C on the way home is nice. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    I dont know about your truck but with mine if I unbolt the radiator brackets on top the radiator will move out of the way just far enough, and I pulled my condenser with out removing it. I also dont have a fan shroud. You would have to take it off 1st.
    good luck

    If you take the upper part of the radiator shroud out and take the upper radiator brackets out you can lean the radiator enough to get the condenser out. I've never done it that way because I've always been careful not to flex any of my lines because I can't afford to replace them or the buckets of o-rings in them. You should have seen my truck when I yanked the motor and core support out of it.

    Thanks. Removing the top have of the shroud and leaning the radiator forward looks like it will work, just wanted to confirm that approch would work.
