If you are flexable, you can take the line off the tank without raising the bed or dropping the tank. Also the relay control wire that they say connect to your fuse box, is easier to hook it into your original power supply for the HFCM.

How long of a job is this given you have the right tools and have a slight idea what you're doing? Are the results noticeable and/or worth the cost? I keep getting the drain water separator icon and am tired of draining. Thanks.

What do you mean by that? I'm confused. It hasnt come back since I installed the spartan setup, but I was just saying. I'm just trying to see if getting an airdog will help any and if it will be a hard job to accomplish.

He was saying that the place your getting your fuel has water in the fuel, and that you should reconsider getting your fuel there. The Air Dog isn't going to gain you anything on a stock truck but better filtration and a good, constant flow of fuel.
