Just picked it up and he said he was thinking of the wrong truck the problem with my degas bottle is that large about 1" diameter nipple on the (if your looking straight at it) bottom left side is "scored" so they say i need to replace that hose and the bottle ?!?!? i think im going to take some high heat tape and wrap it and see if it still leaks...

Dealer replaced mine for $135.00 it's just a plastic,,,go to the parts department & buy it yourself and ask for a commerical discount I get 20% of all parts I buy just by asking when they ask for who I tell the 4wd Parts or Truck accesories they enter it as Commercial cash account,,If I don't want to do the labor I take it then over to the Quik lane and ask them to install it while doing my oilchange,,usually costs very little this way
