    What does it take to install a hydraulic sander on a f350 that is not set up for it? How does a hydraulic sander work??

    Well you have to plumb the truck for hydraulics which I believe involves installing a pump and resovoir, plumb controls into the truck and plumb lines to the back. Gets pretty pricey I believe.

    MJM has it right, it's not the kinf of thing you'd really do as an afterthought. Well I wouldn't at least. You can get gas/hydraulic spreaders, if you buy stainless and put on a truck later with the hydro option then you just convert it to hydro only. As I understand it(never done it) it's not a big deal if it's a combo unit originally. Or you can just go electric v-box and have it simple.
