JK8 Booster/Master + NorthRidge 4x4 Dual ARB Bracket

Iím the dude that collects parts and waits until I have most of them for the intended upgrade and then attempts to install them at once (like a shop would). The up-side is the overall install takes less time, the down-side is I always run into upgrade part comparability issues.

This go-round Iím installing Dynatrac 60ís, dual arb compressor setup, JK8 booster/master, and SwitchPros switch. Diffs went right in. JK8 master/booster goes right in. NorthRidge4x4 ARB dual compressor bracket...



Must not be compatible with the JK8 master/booster combo. Never even considered that it wouldnít work but common sense (and hindsight) says it canít. Booster pushes the master away from the firewall and the master is taller so it can hold more fluid.

Initial thought was to make spacers so the compressor could sit above the master. It would be a pain to fill the master but I suppose I was figuring I could remove the compressors for maintenance (dumbass idea). The height difference is about 1 1/2-inches for reference.



Not enough space under the hood even if it was a good idea. Iím about to shift into ďmake it work with what I have modeĒ. Iíll document the fab if Iím blazing a new trail but I want to first see if anyone has figured how to work around this situation.

Has anyone encountered this and figured out a work-around?

Matt

Heís got got a dual not a single like you.

OP...I had the same issue, other buddies locally did too, none of them have found a good fix. Most of us moved our ARBs under the passenger side seat.

'14 Anvil JKU Sportis all that's in my garage.
What would I know though...I'm just crawlin' at the mall.

but carry on...

Had the same problem with the MORE mount. My shop ended up making a new mount plate using the MORE hardware that was further forward. A dual will fit.

Ok, thatís kinda what I suspected. I think I have an extremely simple mod to the NorthRidge bracket but I had to order some additional nut-serts to pull it off. If it works, I think NorthRidge should modify their design to enable their kit to work with both brake setups. I can do a high-level now.

Concept shifts the bracket towards the front of the jeep to line up the rear bracket howl with the alignment hole already in the fender top.



The support bracket that NorthRidge supplies in their kit is now way short of the countersunk hole in the main bracket.



BUT, if I cut the business end of the bracket and weld it back on, it would land it the meat if the main bracket and work isnít this orientation. In the picture it will be changed from turning 90* to the right to straight down.

Might as well just cut it...Bzzztt...



And now it can be rotated from this:



To this:



And hereís the modified bracket laid out for visual reference:



For otherís reference, it needs to be welded back at a 35* angle.



The compressor now needs risers to be able to clear the brake lines coming out of the ABS manifold. Thereís should be enough clearance to sit well under the hood (or barely, Iíll find out).

Iíll have all the parts I need by next weekend so Iíll be able to complete it and update the thread when I do.

Didnít take long at all. Once drained, the master comes right off by removing the two brake lines, a electrical connector, and the two bolts that attach it to the booster. The booster took me a minute because I first attempted to remove it via the 4 nuts above the brake pedal inside (like all the vehicles a Iíve had before). In this case I could t get the socket on the heads of the nuts so I had to remove the aluminum plate the booster attached to on the engine compartment side and then remove a clip that keeps the booster rod attached to the brake pedal. That maybe took 30 minutes. Install was the same as both removal processes in reverse.

Mine is an Auto Trans. Not sure the process would be any different for manual other than navigating around the second pedal inside when undoing the booster rod.

I've looked pretty hard at those as well, and haven't ruled it out yet. Just threw that question out because I know so many do run the sPod. I do not (so far). FYI, if you have any thoughts of going to the Genesis Off Road Dual Battery Kit, they have confirmed that the SP 8100 WILL (JUST) FIT between the battery and the firewall in their standard mounting location, although it doesn't look like it would.

I have both and they fit fine. Definitely a tight fit. The two are some of the best engineered parts I've bought. Very well thought out products. I highly recommend both.

Looks like others have chimed in already. I have plans to install the 8100 module today and already have the GOR dual battery kit in. Iím certain the two will fit together because Iíve mocked it up but there wonít be tons of space around it. Iíll be sure to snap a few pics.

If it didnít/doesnít fit for some reason It would be extremely easy to mount somewhere else. Wouldnít be as quick of an install.

Do you have any pictures of your mount? I plan on using the MORE mount with my dual compressor

Is there an update to this project? I'd love to install my ARB twin in that location. Pretty sure the sPOD will fit over the booster, then I'm back to having both installed under the hood again.
