Compressor ground

Ok, take a look at this pic.



That's where my compressors are installed. Can I ground them both to one of those bolts holding up the bracket or should I drill a small hole in the frame crossmember to ground them to? For reference, that is the RoadRaceMotorsports mount and it's mounted to the bottom of the tub just above the rear axle.

If that won't work and drilling into the frame is overkill (but when is overkill not a good thing???) can I drill a hole in my upper spring mount since it's not being used as I'm running coilovers?

I say ground them to the bolt holding the bracket.

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money.

So says RRM, too. I guess I should've just called them in the first place.

Ground it there and if it don't work you already have more options.

We have power! Now, all I gotta do is get the RROR skid with my tank installed and run some air lines for the OBA and my ARB's and I'll be good to go. Got quite a bit done today.

NOTE: the bolts holding up the bracket made fine grounding points.

Skid is installed! All hoses are run except for the front air drop and my locker air lines!

One trip to Lowes and I'll be ready!

Does that look like enough clearance from the drive shaft?
