Default Air dryer

OK,i have had it up to my neck with my air dryer!
It works perfectly,we rebuilt it last winter,but the location of it is terrible!

So,today we made a new bracket for it and by this time tomorrow its going to be relocated!
I have a spot for it right behind the bumper of my 2000LXI,the next time it needs service i will be able to sit on a stool and take it off.
Much better!
Pics tomorrow!

the plan is to relocate mine,then relocate one on a 95WB.
We will take pics as we go.
Yesterday i went and had new lines made,the one from the compressor to the air dryer.
Braided stainless with swivels on both ends,2 feet longer than factory.

Randy is being kind. He had all the fittings he needed until I dropped and ruined one of the hard to find items. I caused the three hour delay finding that fitting.
