Where's the port to charge the A/C?

I need to charge my a/c and found the larger port in the system but can't find the lower pressure smaller port to hook the recharge can up to? Is it behind the air box?

Once you find the low pressure port hook the can or refrigerant to it via the quick connect fitting. Start the truck and turn on max a/c. Open the can of refrigerant and it will empty into the system. There is a gauge to show how much is being put in. When the gauge reads you have enough shut the can up and disconnect. Done. Well from what I understand. I just need to find the right fitting to hook up to. There are two and both have different sized fitting so the can only fits onto the right one....and we'll I can't find it :/

Ya, its hidden behind the airbox. Tricky to get to, I had to take my airbox out, connect to the fitting, then reinstall the airbox so I could run the truck. take the airbox out and you'll find it.

I wouldn't go through the hassle of putting my airbox on to start the truck for the a/c

Well, knowing my luck if I had left the airbox off a local squirrel would have gotten its nuts sucked up by the turbo. But that's just my luck.....

Yeah it's behind the airbox against the firewall. You should be able to just remove the airbox cover and that should give you enough room. This is assuming you have the stock box in there. No telling about aftermarket as they are all constructed differently.
