    Default Bagged Truck in the cold.........

    Well I have wanted one for a while. If all goes well, I will have my slammed F-150 Supercrew on Friday.

    Question to those in the know.........how do I keep water out of the system? Since I live in the sometimes cold Indianapolis, water will freeze and I need to keep it out of the lines, valves, etc.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    you can put a dryer on the line goin from the compressor into the tank, most tanks have a pitcock on the bottom to drain out water too.

    Dare to be different, if it turns out great you can claim you planned it that way.

    Best way to keep water out is to put a water trap between each compressor and the tank. Some people also use the antifreeze used by Semi trucks and RV's to keep their air brakes from freezing.

    Enjoy having a bagged truck. I know I love mine.

    here's a few pics of the project I've been working on:

    Nice looking truck.

    Eazy enough on the water traps. What do you do with the air brake antifreeze? Do you put some in the tank? How much?

    methyl alcohol is hell on rubber and the reason alot of semi truck brake actuators go out, i wouldn't use that stuff, easy nuff to just buy a sharp water remover and put it inline.

    Cool. Sorry for the stupid questions, but is a sharp water remover a drier or a water trap?

    I think I am sold on the water traps. Anything else I should know about?

    just make sure the frame is up to it before trying to dance the truck any, guy here at work twisted his 01 swb chevy truck frame a few wks back dancing his truck
