Your High side is going to vary quite a bit depending on how hot the air going through the condenser is. it wont go beyond what the high pressure switch is set for. The system will have stopped cooling by that time though. At 60deg F it will have a vapor pressure @ 57.5 PSIG. At 95 it will be 114 psig that doesnt include heat from compression dirty condensers and such. This chart will help you work on your A\C system successfully.
it also occurs to me that the auto store cans of 134 have a nice gauge to at least get you close so i wouldnt worry about over charging it. stick a thermometer in the vent while its charging so you can see that point when its at its coldest.

Dang mike I feel your pain. Since I've owned my truck the AC would make you put a sweater on. This year nothin. I haven't even begun to trouble shoot it yet, just like Ohio, 80 one week, 50 the next...
What were you saying about bad luck?? Looks like both of ours got better! Glad you got it fixed, I've always said that if the cruise and ac don't work they are going to be fixed right away.
