    Just get a bottle of dot 3 fluid from someplace. It won't take much though.

    You'll probably use more in a mighty vac bleeding the brakes than what you actually put in the truck.

    If a shop is doing the install why are you worrying about brake fluid? 1 bottle will be plenty if you insist on buying from the dealer.

    buy two bottles of brake fluid. Use a mityvac if you got one or go ghetto and use a piece of tubing on the bleeder valve and the other end into glass jar filled with brake fluid.
