Run it empty and drop the tank or take the bed up to install the new draw straw.

Run the tank down till you get the low fuel light, siphon out the remaining fuel. Install a fuel sump then install the AirDog. Enjoy healthy fuel to those injectors!!

The fuse box on the drivers side under the hood by the degas bottle. I cant remember exactly which one I used but what they give you should replace one of the smaller fuses and have a slot on top of it to put the fuse that you took out. You dont need to drain the fuel tank either. Just connect all the lines and if you want remove the old fuel pump. Also, don't forget to prime the filters before you start the truck. On my instrucions it told me to prime just one filter but I ended up having to prime both of them to get the suction going.

What a pain haha I had to pull the bed off to get to the tank due to too much fuel and not enough gas cans. I ended up putting the pick up tube next to the fuel sending unit, in the middle. Is that bad? The 2 stock lines are still connected to the sending unit and the main is disconnected at the fuel pump. Is it supposed to stay disconnected there?

All the airdog lines connect to the stock system, not the pump. There should be a suction line that goes directly to the tank, a fuel line that connects to the stock one that goes to the fuel bowl, and a return line. They are all quick connect fittings. I'm not sure if this is what your asking. When you say fuel sending unit, what exactly are you talking about?

i was just confused on the factory lines at the tank, i removed the line to the stock pump in the fuel rail then connected the airdog to the pump and pulled the bed and put the new straw in the middle of the tank i didnt want to have a issue if i put it in the rear with the bed smashing it. i think the airdog is amazing big difference on throttle response. thx for all your help guys

Is it only the Airdog II that you don't have to drop the tank?
