    Actually i don't run anything more than the stock resivior.
    An easy way to add some more fluid it to cut the neck out of another resivior and then use a piece of radiator hose to splice it onto the other one. you can add up to a pint or two like that.

    Add a cooler to it. Kill two birds with one stone that way.

    Im doing both - adding a cooler and adding the radiator hose mod.

    GM Actually offered a reservoir on some of their 1 ton Dually's with Hydro Assist Braking. Wonder if anyone can get a part number.
