Where are you mounting your on-board air compressors?

For airing tires, not lockers.

I'm sure it's been covered but my search isn't coming up with anything.

Thanks!

I don't have abs, so I removed the abs tray and built a mount that slides down behind the wheel well.

ABS tray. It does get hot with the pre-CAT's right there, but I haven't had the thermal protection go off on me yet. I didn't have to remove the fender to get the ARB single in place - just a little bit of wiggling.

Where did you get that "cap" for the quick connect? I'm thinking about doing something similar. did you have to go with any kind of high-temp air hose for engine bay run?


I am using hose I found at Harbor freight. IIRC it stated it was rated for 175°. It's been three years and many fill ups and they've held up. My coalescing filter though has not....

Keep in mind that 12v compressors get HOT and they'll shut off on you when airing up once they get hot enough. Mounting them inside the engine compartment can cause them to get hot more easily and shut off more often while you're trying to air up.

Where do you keep yours?
