    Hmm. I need to take this into consideration. Is that the twin compressor? If not, do you think the twin would fit in the same spot? Do you have to worry about any additional heat from the engine or are you always raising the hood when you run it? Trying to figure this out and whether I want to jump into the compressor now or use a Powertank until I put the locker in.

    No mods yet because it's new. But this is our second truck and have plans for a backcountry/overland rig.
    Following this thread.....lots of good options and ideas in here.

    I too am looking at a twin ARB mount, but not in my cab. I need it to air up and air down and run lockers, so access for the tires is important. I'm focusing on mounting it in the engine bay somewhere/somehow and lots of good ideas in here.

    Thanks everyone for sharing your builds on this. It's really tough (ok, impossible) to find a commercially available mount for a Tundra.

    Paid 377$ for a 100% duty cycle Viair kit w/2.5 gal res. I plan having the compressor installed under the hood to keep dry and to mount the reservoir on the inside driver side frame.

    I have mine tucked into the frame on my 03. I still need to sun air lines to the front and back of the truck.20171005_164949.jpg

    I WANT ONE TOO! Nice work on the installs, it would be so nice to deflate and re-inflate the tires on rocky trails here. I too have told my wife I wanted one and a year later and no compressor as a gift??? LOL
