Air tank install????

I came across a brand new QuickAir air pump!! I would like to install it in my 2008 2D X but I dont see anywhere that I could mount a Tank for this system. I know everyone is going with Co2 tanks now, But it would be a shame to waste a really nice brand new pump that could run my future lockers??????

Does anyone have a tank mounted that you could post a pic of ????
I am trying to avoid putting a pressurized tank inside the jeep too!!!

What the Hell does that Big Assed Picture of your Jeep have to do with your question?

Behind the front bumper welded to the cross bar. No pics and it is raining right now. The bar is the same one that you can see just below your front bumper in the pic. RedneckHouston did the work and did a great job. Even put a chuck on the front bumper where I can just plug and go..



This tank, painted black:

ANSWER:

I went with the River Raider Off-Road skid plate system. They have an optional Evaporator Skid Plate, OR Evaporator + Air Tank Skid Plate, which mounts it perfectly from the old Evap mount locations. It is completely protected, and not in the cab.

I have the Viair Ultra-Duty OBA System, with a 2.5 gallon tank. It fits in this perfectly!

Here are two pictures from Kenny's website, and their web address. They have extremely well fabricated products, great fit, and outstanding customer service. I HIGHLY recommend River Raider Off-Road. I'll post up pics of my rig later when it isn't raining.

THANK YOU ALL!!! I will most likely go with that River Raider set up (kill two birds...)!! I know the picture is way too big but I am still learning how to post to forums. Thank you all for your input. I LOVE this site. I thought I had a very strange addiction to my jeep until I met all of you. Now I realize We are the sane ones!!
