I use a 90/120 with my 350c, I wish I would have went with the 110/150. One of these days I'll get around to changing it.

true personally i don't find a whole bunch of ports all that useful unless the tank is somewhere semi clean. i prefer the manifold to be under the hood with all the components off that to keep them semi safe from anything that they might get caught on if they're mounted under the jeep. for me it was just easier to tap my custom bumpers for air and put a drain on the bottom.

the OBA parts are gathered

Im looking at pressure safety valves to go on my VIAIR 2.5 tank
some of the valves different CFM ratings.
What one will work the best.
Sears dosent have them but I did pick up an inline oiler and a petcock for the tank
Im looking for a good web site that takes paypal that has the parts that i need to complete my OBA
I have one on these filter regulators , one in and 3 outs
I should be able to use this as an all in one filter and manifold

I bought the 2.5 gallon VIAIR tank amd am searching for a place to put it.
I was thinking of inside on one of the rear decks but that requires running alot of hose.
I removed the stock jack and it just fits there but not flush on the fender well
This may sound suicidle but I was thing of removing the fan shroud and bracketing it inbetween the fan and the radiator, there would still be 2 inches of space from the fan.
Heres what I came up with and i think it looks cool too

The block of wood is just there so it didnt slip when I took the picture.
I am going to fab something up so it bolts where a winch would go
What do you think? Anyone else go with this set up?

I don't think your gonna want tubing/wires...etc coming out from the front of your rig. They will be exposed to the elements, as well as tree's/limbs...etc while wheelin.

I'd think about placing it on flat part of the wheel wells in the cab, or someplace protected. Alot of people mount them to the tub underneath. Yes, it's more hose...well worth doing it right the first time.

While it's a remote chance...it's a chance none the less.....

In the event of an accident, you most certainly don't want that amount of pressure being exploded at the front of your vehicle.


Last but not least....

As polite as I can put it....

It doesn't look cool.

I like to build stuff. Want to know what I build, you can google it HERE

That must be 40" long. So much for under the hood. See if there's room mounted to the cross member that's under the back seat. I saw a handyman jack in this spot, but you could have fun finding a spot for that one.

I think this might be the same suggestion as above, but under the jeep above the rear axle (right under the rear seat). I was planning on doing this but my track bar stopped me from this.

I see a Youtube video in your future that involves a rock and a missing front end...

Honestly though, this seems like it would be one of the, if not the worst spot to mount an air tank. Talk about exposed! Plus your are pretty much eliminating a winch.

25" long x 5 " deep.
Thanks for looking out for me!
I will go for the flats on the rear wheel wells.
It will be alot easier of an install there even if the hoses are longer

I was going to mount my tank this weekend and did this post
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/gauge-mod-492382/

I just wanted a nice spot to mount my pressure gauge, just thought I got a couple good pointers on this. Just to give you one more thing to work on

I think it would look great behind a nice tube bumper, but like that it looks dangerous.

You can't teach an old dogma new tricks.
