ARB Twin Mount over engine

I am sure someone else has done this, but I didn't find any pictures. Here is a mount for an ARB twin compressor over the engine. It is supported by the firewall and the fenders. It was pretty simple to make.

I am also mounting another ARB Twin under the passenger seat.



Here it is installed

WOW! Keith that is a super mod. I have never heard or seen of one constructed like that. You need to patent that fast and start mfg. Of course you'd have to mfg one to fit the 3.8 and the 3.6. OBA, Inc., yup.

Why would you need two? Just a separate tank maybe?

Over a grand in air compressors? Installed right over the engine so it'll bake away weather you use it or not ? I hate to think of the temps. it will have while it's running and the engine is also. Definitely going to cook away your investment. Why over the engine ? You did a great job but it's the application that's the problem as I see it. Sorry.

Looks good Keith! Hey Dahreno, Keith also bought Rigid A Series lights for rock lights. Doesn't matter how much it cost, money isn't his top priority. He's happy, leave it at that.

I kind of had the same thought, why do you need two ARB twins plus it looks like you have another already set up to run your lockers. Why not just add a remote tank? Also I would at least put some kind of heat shield on the under side of the bracket you made.

The great thing about jeep's are you can make it how you want or like.

Nice work. Do you not like the existing engine bay bracket(s)?

Mine is under the passenger seat and it even gets pretty warm there too with all that carpet and seat foam insulation around the compressor and no air flow.

The rig in this vid is setup nice. The compressor is over the master cylinder, leaving room for a different kind of compressor to be located above the engine. And an SPOD too.

I have a tank. With 40's one would just take too long to air up. at the end of the day.

I have had a single mounted by the brake booster and it has done fine. That is closer to the exhaust, so it is actually a hotter spot. In reality I simply have no other place to put it. It wasn't my first choice, but there is no where else.

Don't mock me on the rock lights. I haven't installed them yet. But I am going to. I talked to one of the guys from Rigid last night about how to wire up 10 of them. Their biggest kit is 6, and that is not enough. I am also using their interior lights for dome lights, and 2 under the hood.

I like that idea. I might switch to a vented hood at some point. But the LS runs really cool so far.

And thanks for the help on the stereo. I got all the stuff in and should be installing the head unit and amp today.

Sweet, definitely looking forward to the outcome. What head unit did you go with?

I have to give you shit! 10!? Don't park in one place for too long, you'll set fire to the ground...

Dahreno, maybe you could post a picture of your wagon in this thread since it has four tires and a V8. By the way, you're on a public forum, when you post up, you post up for everyone, even guests who haven't registered. So, no, I won't shut my proverbial pie hole.

I like it. It's not going to get hot enough in there to damage it, half of the parts in the engine bay are made of plastic anyways.

If I remember correctly, dynomax also acts as a heat shield. And I didn't notice you're running an LS3 motor, which does run cooler than either the 3.8L or the 3.6L. Airing up 40's does require a lot more air than even 37/38's but I think an air tank mounted some where else. It would not only give you more air volume, it also allows for the compressor to work more effectively. Plus with am air tank you can run air tools too.

Besides under the Jeep, not sure where in the hell he would mount a tank. I imagine with the swap, that little spot under the radiator where Woods mounts his tank is probably gone. There is no place in the back with the third row. That would leave the Evap skid/tank combo, maybe. Keith would know, but I think there is a method to his madness here.

I do have a 2.5 gallon tank next to the rear drive shaft. The EVAP is above the rear pumpkin.

I really was trying to figure out where or how to mount one of those Oasis 12V compressors. They do 8cfm at 90psi. I talked to them and they have to be mounted vertically so there was no place to do it.

JKCTAZ, I went with the Apple radio 4 one that you suggested. I didn't get that in today due to other issues with the rear trunk and drawer.

Badass! You'll really like it, that is way beyond the crappy OEM Nav units.
