    How does the rear air on Suburban work(like 2 compressors?) and can it be added to a Burb without rear air?

    One compressor, yards and yards of a/c lines, 2 evaporators and a whole bunch of coolant. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif It would be a BIG job to add it later. Pretty much all of the lines would have to be replaced, starting at the compressor and working your way back.

    Sounds like greywolf may have the solution for ya (other than a whole lot of labor on your part!) /forums/images/icons/wink.gif You'll want to get all the little brackets that secure the lines along the underside of the truck as well as the other stuff.
