No.... but thats moisture in you duct work. I would look to make sure the drain is working properly. When you use anything but the vent mode you are running the A/C compressor. Thats when the moisture is pulled from the air and needs to drain out of your duct work. Its on the passenger side lower firewall. Not exactly sure but maybe someone can chime in who has cleaned it before.

I haven't figured out a fix yet, but I do have the exact same problem. Think I'm going to try to clean the drain when I get back stateside and see if that helps.

Mine does the same thing anytime I don't have the windows down. I will open the back slider till the truck gets warmed up then kick on the defroster.

This fogging can also be a sign that your heater core is leaking. However, you will also get the smell of antifreeze with the fog.

Do you smoke?

It could be a film on the windshield from cigg. smoke if you smoke in your truck. It reacts to the temp. change as soon as you start your truck and will cause it to cloud up or fog up.
