    Thats good, i was thinking, "what the h*!! are you going to do with an air dryer on your pickup.

    Sure it can be done (was probably an option), Question is, do you feel comfortable doing it? but remember, it is a braking system, if something goes wrong down the road because of the install, i would rather have that in the mechnics lap for liability.

    They are a piece of cake to install. Just find a area to mount it, one air line-in, one air line-out, one electrical wire for the heater. When you mount it remember to consider the room needed to service it. Before installing it have the air compressor checked out to be sure it is not in need of rebuilding/replacement. If it is passing a lot of oil it will ruin the desiccant (air drying agent) real fast and render the air dryer useless.
