Air tank location/install

Doing a bit of research on air tank location and/or installation. The information and pics of current setups seems to be fairly scattered throughout threads.

Post up your install. Right now I'm leaning towards the Viair 2 or 2.5 gallon tank and mounting my compressor somewhere in the back or under the drivers seat, but I'll be putting it in some type of enclosure b/c I don't want the interior noise when I flip that baby on.

Let's see 'em...

Mine is where the stock muffler was. But if i was going to do it again i would run without a tank. It is only useful for the 1st tire.

^^ What he says is right, and mine is in same location. You would be better served buying a compressor with the highest cfm that you can afford.

I've got the tuffy rear security hatch kit thing in the back of my unlimited and mounted a 2.5-3 gallon one to the right inside wall.

I mounted a 1 gallon tank to the crossmember below the radiator. You can see it in the lower part of this picture.

Good info there.

FWIW, I've got the RROR evap/air tank skid with a 2gal tank in it. For compressors, I've got two ViAir 400c compressors mounted to the bottom of the tub over the rear axle.

Im not really crazy about my location however it has been in for 6ish months maybe more and have not had an issue with space. It is rather entertaining when the relief valve pops off and scares the heck out of my passenger's.

My Viair 450c compressor, Brake booster mounted.


The air distribution block.

I have changed thins on the block since this photo, going to a digital gauge that is operated by sensor over air line.

Twin 2.5 gallon tanks.

I disagree. My York can just about top off the tank while I put the cap back on the finished tire, move over to the next and unscrew the cap.

Tank

Running the VIAR constant duty and a 2 gallon tank. The 2 gallon tanks fit nicely behind the radiator. I used Poly's cross member mount for the tank and their compressor mount that bolts up to the master cylinder. Ran air coupler to a hole in the frame, behind front bumper.

My system is kinda slow. Have been considering adding another compressor. But may just go power tank.
