I recently went down this road back in summer as well had been driving without AC in my 2011 Toyota Tundra Crewmax Ltd, here in the Northeast. was not all that fun on some of those hot summer days with no AC, but thats why they put sunroof and real windows in cars. Felt like back in the 80s. But since we were taking a family trip in the summer we needed AC for a short vacation. Actually had looked at other vehicles to replace my tundra. But in the end decided against it and broke down and had the AC repaired. After taking it to a local toyota dealer who stated would the cost to repair would be >$2K (the confirmed the AC compressor clutch had seized and there was a leak in the condenser). I took it to a local shop that does AC work, they did a great job replaced compressor, condenser/dryer for under $1600. Definitely an expensive item to fix & correct, but well worth it in the end.
