Got my onboard air done.

Well I was given an onboard air from Viair from a friend for doing some work on his jeep. So I spent some time and made some brackets out of aluminum and got it wired p.. works like a champ!

It's actually extremely quiet... I tested it today with my 18 mo daughter while she was sleeping kicked it on and let it run to 150 psi and she didn't move a muscle!!!!

I dig it!

I've been considering moving my compressor from underhood, and pics are always good inspiration.

3 things you may want to consider (nothing alarming, just consider):
  • You can move the pressure relief out of the way using a tee fitting in one of the other ports
  • The compressor pump head gets warm - keep an eye on your little one's hands and that plastic window
  • Without a drain on the bottom of the tank, you may start a water collection . . .

Nothing to lose sleep over, just wanted to call those out.

Thanks again for sharing

You are correct on all 3 accounts!
have considered that making a special aluminum block to hold 2 ARB locker pressure switches and will attach there or the other side.
for the compressor I'm gunna make a little water proof fan set up and thankfully my daughter it to small to currently reach it and if she is in the back my gear that I take wheeling is on the side also so hard to reach for her but thank you for thinking about it.
lastly since it did escape me and my dad also pointed in out I'm gunna get a !/4 npt bung and make a hole on the bottom and tig it on and pressure test it. also gunna run a small vacuum line out of the drain through the grommet by the taillight so it will drain out side.

If it's the grommet I'm thinking of, I found that a 90 degree fitting makes for clean routing without violating minimum bend radius.
