R134 conversion

Anyone ever convert R12 to R134 on their Toyota?

Alright, got a retrofit kit. I'll see how this goes. Came with about 50 different sized O-rings. I'm hoping I won't need them all.

the only thing I can think of is the AC. Refridgerant R134a is a common coolant.

Before 1995, Toyota's had R12 refrigerant in the A/C system. Newer vehicles use R134. R12 requires an EPA license to purchase and is very expensive. R134 can be purchased at most auto parts store.

Depends on how hot it gets in Moab. I may or may not use the tube doors. I have quick release hinge pins I'm getting ready to put on.

Took all of the A/C connections apart and replaced all of the o-rings. Wasn't too bad. Just waiting on a new hose from Toyota then I can recharge the system. We'll see how it works.
