Hello and welcome to just answer. After the first compressor failure, was the system cleaned/flushed out before the new compressor was installed?

I know the system has been flushed several x's....Without the service tickets I can't answer as to which and how many x's..I do know that metal shavings were removed from the system once..I'm trying to justify keeping this truck and the reasons are about down to 0, and due to medical problems a/c is needed.

Gotcha. Well i highly recommend replacing the compressor, condenser, and accumulator again and a thorough flushing of the lines and evaporator one more time. And please use an OEM Mopar compressor if possible. I think if you do that the system should be good to go for a long time.
