    How's it going guys and gals? I purchased the twin ARB air compressor from the group buy and I was wondering where would be the best location for it and/or how can I fabricate a bracket for it? Thanks in advance.

    @CM-LENNY made a really nice mount. Maybe we can sweet talk him into making one for each of us.

    That makes three. That's probably the only way to get one like his @CM-LENNY

    I'd have to consider that, I'll keep that as an option. And yes I do have a crewmax

    I installed it right next to the winch with 2.5 gallon tank underneath the passenger rear door. I m running a CKMA12 in the P&P engineering winch bumper. Plenty of space to install the twin compressor in there too.

    @CM-LENNY is the king of compressor install at tundras.com. Got a lots of good info. and directions from him.

    Thanks for the kind words guys on my compressor set-up. Lots of time goes into my design and fab process and wish I had time to build others. Between a busy work schedule, working on my rig and trying to camp once a month or so, I have no spare time. I think you're doing an awesome job on your setup Harris.:thumbsup:

    Unfortunately the 2014 and up Tundras rear seat doesn't fold down. I think it'll be difficult for me to place the compressor there.

    Keep in mind guys that these compressors draw a fair amount of juice. The twin cylinder uses 2) 30 or 40 AMP fuses and requires the truck to be running during use. Yes you can fire the compressor off for a short run without the truck running, but for a constant draw the trucks alternator is required, not just a stand alone battery. Also if mounting any distance beyond the factory loom, upgrade you wire size accordingly on the hot and ground. Happy compressing......:boink:

    Thanks @CM-LENNY, Is it possible for you to take more pictures of your compressor and how you mounted it? I'll buy you a beer or some whiskey if you do:D

    Hey Czar, no need for the whisky, but a cold beer sounds good ! ;) I will get some pics for you in a few days. I have been working long hours and just got to sit down with a cold Pacifico and turn on the computer. Have a wedding to go to Sat, so hopefully Sunday I can post some pics for ya.

    This is a great set up. What tank is that (where did you get it?) and did you have to modify it to fit in the frame rails?

    Im making both single and Twin mounts available for the Tundra engine bay. Most of you have seen this thread already but here’s the link for future people searching for this type of mounting opinion. Msg me for more info here or over on Instagram. I have more photos and info on my Instagram @Tundra452

    Did you have the get a harness extension? I'm not sure if I want to put it in my engine bay. I'm thinking of putting mine under my rear bucket seat.

    If I get a winch on my 2WD, can I overland with the BASTRDs and SGU?!
    Um. I'm not an expert at equipment stuff but WARNING: compressors get damned hot!! :bananadead:

    I think putting one in the passenger compartment is a bad idea: burns to people, fabrics, carpet would all be concerns. And they take a long time to cool off-- not like you could just leave the seat forward a few minutes before driving again.

    Hmmn, I guess I'm wrong and others have done it. I didn't realize my small portable compressor getting so hot is not what you'd expect from an ARB or Smitty or others.

    As you were.

    Yeah it could get hot. I've seen the NSV one. Designed for the spot I'm thinking of. I'd cut the carpet pad out and prob build a mount. I think there would be space to have the seat down but idk yet xD just would be nice to air the tires back up without opening the hood. But whatever works!

    Post when you decide. I'd like to know all options before I eventually mount one.
