Default 2001 dodge ram 1500 5.2 no blowing cold ac

My ac is not blowing ice cold , there’s a small amount of cold air that comes on but not enough to cool the cab on a hot day . I recently replaced the blend door cylinder which was cracked so it couldn't cycle from hot to cold but that didnt fix the issue ac lines along the finder are Ice cold the compressor is working but still no ice cold ac .

Did you re-index the stepper motor for the blend door?

Does the compressor run constantly, or does it cycle on/off fairly quickly?

I think you are low on refrigerant. Wouldn't hurt to put gauges on it, and see what pressures look like.

now I did have some of that AC pro stiff laying around and attempted to see if that helped but the gauge on the AC pro bottle read full a (lil pass 40 psi) not sure if that works the same *** having the system professionally cleared out and recharged

There should be a chart on the can, that gives you desired pressure (while compressor is running), vs ambient temp......
