Nope, most TJ's, YJ's, and CJ's that run that don't have A/C which is where the compressor is normally mounted. Haven't seen one on a WJ. Saw one on a ZJ that someone had cut up so it really didn't look like a ZJ anymore. Didn't need A/C at that point.

Yeah, I was looking to install something like this http://offroadrecovery.com/product/006_000 in the ZJ. I got hung up on some kind of braket/mounting system that would work with the other accesories. Like Woody said the only real way I see it feasable is to remove one of the other belt driven accessories. I was looking into an electric PS pump but they are so rare it's not really worth it. Especially since you can get a high volume 100% duty 12V compressor like a viair for a fraction of the price and less work.

Thanks! When i have done searches on air compressors I was finding stuff that cost twice as much as this Viair product line!

http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/viair.htm

I think I'll start with the onboard tank first.

Anyone know how a site to help calculate the gallons of air used at "x" psi?
