Question about 1996 Chevrolet K1500
2lbs. 0oz. Cans of refrigerant come in 12oz. cans, so between 2.5-3 cans should fill the system. I recommend running a can of refrigerant + dye, price should not be much different, to make sure there are no leaks. So run 1 can of refrigerant + dye and 1.5-2 cans of regular refrigerant and you should be good to go.

As far as I know you only have to change the compressor and dryer-filter to comply with 134a. Other components from old Freon 12 are safe to use for 134a. There's an Urban (mechanics) legend that you can use a 134a to an r12 system, but you can't use an r12 to a newer 134a system. But be on the safe side, change the compressor and dryer to use 134a or ask an expert on refrigeration.
