Good evening
Yes this is a common complaint with a truck with high miles, what happens here the evaporator get dirty and with the ac works it traps the water and then it starts to turn into ice.pull the blower motor out and with a mirror have a look and see if its dirty, if so then it needs to be removed and thoroughly cleaned. Consider it and let me know how you do.
