Big Viair compressor mount

I know everyone has seen the brackets to mount an ARB or smaller compressor. We had a customer that purchased a 450 Viair and wanted to mount it in the same spot, but it was too long for the old bracket. So, we whipped out the Torchmate and jammed out this bracket. Check it out.



It also mounts in the front to help support the weight.




We also made this little bracket out of aluminum the hold the coupler.





Anyone interested???

You guys do some good fab work! I have a question though. Being that close to the ABS and brake control module...even the bracket is notched it still seems to be really close. I could be deceived by the pictures! However with the compressor on, does it vibrate and rub on those lines any?

Thanks! Deceiving pic, there is good clearance around all the lines. The next one I build will add some more also. Say, anouther 1/4".

We did. Just out of some aluminum laying around. Suprising the compressor didn't come with hardly anything. No wiring, relay, fuze, switch, or pressure regulater switch. Maybe I missed something when we ordered it.

It came out really nice. I know when I ordered my Arb compressor it came with all the extra goodies.

Not sure, i'de need to get the dimensions on the compressor first. We did dual 400 before on the tail gate because of the same issue, no room.
