This is a common problem to these 2nd gen pickups. Before you have it serviced, go to the power dist box under the hood n swap the a/c clutch relay with a like relay in the box. Usually, these relays cause this exact problem before they go completely out. The power contacter inside the relay gets dirty from arcing n over the years, the voltage to the clutch gets too low to keep the clutch engaged. If you're really bold, you can pull the relay apart (it's easy) n use a very small piece of 400 grit sandpaper, shove it between the contacts n sand away.
