Should i be concerned

2005 ISL 400 Cummins
(Also posted on the Cummins thread)

This is the larger hose that comes out of the bottom of from what I'm assuming is the hydraulic reservoir. The outer part of it is deteriorating, probably from heat and age. Has anyone replaced this and if so, where can I purchase it or have one made?
On a side note...
That's just water on it, there are no leaks as of now.

Picture didn't come through , but NAPA and almost all truck repair shops can make up hydraulic hoses in any size and length.

Should i be concerned

Just replaced that hose on my '05 for the same reasons. As previously stated, the hoses are available from many NAPA stores (they make custom hoses). And yes, you need to be concerned, replace it before it fails, the hydraulics drive too much to let it go.
