Things you need(to do it properly) vacuum pump,r134a gauges and leak detection of some sort first locate lowside port connect blue connector from gauge to it (lowside is the skinny hose)connect vacuum pump to yellow line open valve on blue guage manifold.
pull a vacuum to less than 30" hg for thirty minutes.close bluevalve on manifold watch needle make sure pressure doen't rise if no change in pressure after 15 minutes no leak.if pressure does rise then you have a leak and need to find it.(cheap/messy way use get a can of 134 with dye in it fill system and let it run look for dye on system usually on pump around back of clutch,unless you replaced a compnent recently then check all fittings and seals.)
you will add r134a through the yellow hose.

Wondering what the best brand or type of coolant for a 1998 dodge ram 2500 diesel would be.

I have and always will recommend universal (Yellow colored) coolant. I'm not too sure if the brand even matters. I know that some people say that its best to put in exactly what the manufacturer specifies but I just don't see any draw backs to using universal. So as an Automotive Technician I recommend "The yellow stuff"/universal

Product which take place of air conditioner

do you mean coolant alternatives to R134a? there are some products you can get. Redtek has a kit you can get with a filler hose, an oil charge, and 2 "coolant" charge cans for around $40, just make sure to get the R134a pumped out before you put the redtek stuff in as they do not mix well
