If it needs to be evacuated and refilled, what are the chances of this
working? Is the R134a that poor of a refrigerant that I will end up SOL?

Your truck came with r134a; it did not come with R12.   It should be
possible to get it to work the way it did when it was new.  It's
possible that the shop used undersized replacement condenser or
evaporators, but low refrigerant levels are more likely.
