Onboard air

I have got a viair oba kit for my Zj but i cant decide where to mount everything.
Does anyone here have a good idea of where i can mount the compressor and airtank?
For the airtank i think i can build a mount and then bolt it to the side of the cargoarea where the sparetire used to sit.

But where is a good place to put the compressor, i have almost no room in the enginebay because of the 5.2.
I also got a big*** trainhorn with the kit that i need to fit somewhere...

If anyone have pic,s of where they mounted their airtanks and compressors it would be great.

ARB compressor plumbed to a 2.5 gallon tank. I have a power distribution under the back seat that the compressor is wired to.

Thanks for the replys.

PopperM5: i want to have my compressor on the inside because i use the zj as a dd and in the winter they salt the roads here.
I am only guessing that the viair compressor wont like salt that much and will get destroyed.

Whiteout: do you have any pic,s of your power distributionblock?

I'll try to get some tonight or tomorrow. As for my air up time, I'm at about 8 minutes for 33s from ~10psi to ~32psi

I've had my mounted on a platform where the spare used to be, and My compressor is under the hood.


It's still in the same place just on top of my storage system now.
