Hey!

I would like your opinions on where to mount an air compressor.

I have an air compressor for my tires. It's a budget one. I dont plan on buying a new one, since it does okay for my use.
Its this one:

A lot of guys mount them on the tray under the brake booster. Not sure if that will fit or not.

Unfortunately I dont think it will fit! Its a bit bigger than the arb one!

Thanks for the answer though!

I bought an ARB compressor in a bag. I might mount it one day, but for the 5-6 times a year I actually have to use it to air down/up popping the hood & connecting it to the battery isn't a big deal.

X2 on the tray under the brake booster, that's where I have my ARB compressor, it wasn't easy putting it because you barley have any room to work with, but that's where a lot of people put them.

If you have a later model TJ with the evap canister in the back, you could mount the compressor like this.

My Viair is on that tray now 480C for size comparison. Tomorrow my dual ARB arrives so it will be swapped out soon.

Does the dual ARB fit on the tray below the brake booster or just the single?

Here’s what my setup looks like with the air chuck attachment and the solenoid for the arb in the rear.
