your heater core has probably sprung a leak.does the fog smell kinda sweet?....check the floor in the front where the floor mats are for moisture or even puddles of antifreeze.(the replacement of a heater core can be very expensive as the entire dash usually needs to be removed to access the heater core)also look under the engine near the firewall for antifreeze drips.

SOURCE: Frost on inside of window
your heater core is probably leaking.....this is a big job to fix you'll probably want to take it to a shop to have this done as the complete removal of the dash is necessary
Good luck.........thanks for choosing FIX YA!

If it smells like antifreeze, and leaves a film on windshield, it's probably a leaking heater core, but if not, your drain tube/passage for heater/AC duct-work, is plugged and not allowing moisture to drain out. Not 100% sure where drains are on that but, I would look real close at lower firewall in engine compartment,opposite duct-work, as well as under truck near front floor, for tubes sticking out, and carefully and gently, run a pipe cleaner or similar in & out to clean, until moisture starts to run out.

Is your coolant level going down, on a regular basis, to the point that you need to add some periodically? If not, then lets say it's not heater core for now, and that dripping that you see on passenger side may be the drain tube from the heater box. Try to pinpoint exactly where that drip is coming from, and if it does look like a drain tube, try poking a pipe cleaner or something similar in there carefully to dislodge whatever may be clogging up that tube. My guess is that it's plugged up and that's what's also causing fog inside vehicle. Once that's drained out, things will dry up and you should be back to normal with a little luck. If your not sure about whether or not core is leaking, have a rad, or repair shop, perform a system pressure test, and that should tell you whether or not you have a system leak, then you can investigate further if necessary.

Turn the ignition key to the run position for 30 seconds and then off for 5 seconds and turn it on to the run position again for 10 seconds and then start the engine. This will pressurize the fuel system and warm up the MAF sensor to burn off any dirt and frost on the filament, you should not have to press on the gas peddle, the Idle air control valve should do that for you. Good luck and this should help.
