I just bought the heavy duty viair onboard air system, and I don't know where to mount the compressor. I would like to put it under the hood, but i don't think there is enough room. need help

not a problem!
the guys at 2 track are good folks
I used one of their mounts in my rig to mount a pancake air tank and they were really cool to work with me on the project

when you guys have your compressors mounted with that bracket, does it make the brake pedal vibrate. i made one to mount my ARB compressor. when the compressor is on, you can feel it pretty good in the pedals. maybe thats a good thing. heres the bracket i made.

I dunno, like I said, I mounted my air tank w/mine
my generic compressor is on a mount I made from a piece of flat stock that runs from one of the drivers side fender bolts across to the air box lid and hangs the compressor between the front of the motor and the fan shroud
you can kinda see it in this pic

I can't feel it but I hear it when it runs.

I also used the 2 tracks bracket. I was concerned that with the constant duty compressor would get too hot for the small space behind the taillight.

I think this is the sweetest mount I've seen by far! Especially with the gauge on the bass speaker box... Just mint.:grinpimp:

I have the 2TM bracket for my ARB but it's not wired up. When the sPOD arrives I'll let you know.

I installed mine behind the right rear taillight. I can post write up later.
