You'll want to replace the air dryer, as it helps eliminate a *LOT* of moisture from the system. They fail (get blocked/stuck open) often because they frequently are forgotten during service (they have a filter that needs to be replaced).
As long as the moisture stays in the wet tank, and you drain it regularly, you should be fine. The brake system draws from the dry tank (or it should).
