- What could be lurking under here????
I relocated my locker pumps
I simply used the factory mounting hardware, drilled some grommet holes, and stuck it all together with butt splice connectors and heat shrink: (please excuse the falling electrical tape)
I also managed to get my OBA tank mounted (not pictured) next to the DS and got my Viair compressor mounted. I also installed an AutoMeter air pressure gauge next to the locker switch and tapped into the unused overdrive plug so it lights up with the dash. Next up will to get my Kilby manifold, switches, and plumbing ran:
