rearranged my onboard air setup

I've got the Viair compressor mounted on the brake booster and the 2 gallon tank mounted with Woods' brackets, but I've never really had a good place to put my quick disconnect air chucks. Up until now, I had a line routed to the front bumper and the QD loosely zip-tied there. It worked, but didn't look great, and was a PITA to stretch the air hose from the front bumper to all four corners.

I decided to run an air line down each side of the JK (though the frame rails) and mounted the QD's under the front seats. It's just a simple piece of angle iron that bolts to the underside of the seat bracket. There's already mounting studs there (that connect the seat slider mechanism to the bracket), so I just removed one of the nuts, put the bracket on, and replaced the nut.

The air lines enter the cabin through a small hole I cut in the drain plugs. I'm really likin' it so far; can hardly notice they're there unless you're looking. I mounted them flush with the outside of the bracket so I don't get something tangled up while getting in/out of the Jeep.

Thanks to WRMORRISON I have the same set up and I have to admit it's awesome having the QD's (quick disconnects) inside the cab, and on each side .....

This is where I put mine. Very study since it is firmly attached.

Nice setup there leatherneck! Wouldn't work for me though, I cut that crash bar off the first week I had the Jeep...

I did find a weak point in my setup about an hour ago though... While airing up this evening, my line burst where it comes though under the driver's seat and before it enters the frame rail. That 6" that was exposed was too close to the exhaust (maybe 4" away), and the heat caused it to burst. Gotta do some re-routing tonight or tomorrow...

I've seen the Woods kits, and I thought about putting mine there, but I kept thinking it would get in the way with putting the "door loops" on or something. They look good though!
