Hey Chris==Some radator repair shops repair evaporator cores but I persomally am not a fan of it. If it rotted through in one place I don't think it will be long until ti rots through at another. It is a big job to replace it plus you have to have a refrigerant recycler to dispose of the refrigerant. Goodluckjoe

Hey Bob==It is quite a job to replace the evaporator. I would suggest getting a manual on your truck if you want to attempt it. Remember after you get it changed the system will have to be evacuated and recharged. Unless you are a pretty good mechanic, I suggest you have it done. Good luck, Joe
