So I finally picked up some Freon and a gauge. The parts store clerk said to attach the hose/gauge to the system before puncturing the bottle in case I needed to return.
I did and started the truck and turned on the air. The gauge read charged. Once I started the motor and turned on the air the gauge dropped to the recharge position when the compressor kicked on and jumped to the charged position when the compressor stopped. Do I go ahead and attempt to insert Freon?

Update! Ok I just took a chance and it took the entire can of Freon and it is working now! Yahoo! Now, the gauge reads from 30-50 in the green charged area. Currently it sits at a constant 30. Should I get some more Freon and bring the setting up to at least the 40+ range?

I would let it be if the system is cold, you don't want to over charge it.
Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.
