Cheapest way to install AC on a non AC truck?

I tried searching for old posts but can't find what I'm looking for. I've got a 1977 K10, NON AC truck, and I want to put AC in it but I don't want to spend 1,500 on a vintage air kit. Is there a cheaper way of doing it by using parts from another truck and what all do I need? If there are posts about this already, please feel free to point me in that direction. Thanks.

Under-dash unit probably simplest and probably cheapest too.

you can use factory parts off a 81-87, but you have to cut and modify the firewall, so its not real easy. but not undoable either. just depends on your skillset. I added factory a/c to my crewcab. wouldn't do it any other way.

Do you have a sliding back window? If so then get a house window unit and a generator. Ice cubes on demand
