Sanden OBA Questions

Ok lemme start off with the fact that I chose the Sanden compressor cuz it's already in my rig and I don't want to fudge with anything else. Here's my questions:

1-Can I reuse the wiring for the 3-way switch for the A/C and replace that with a toggle inside the Jeep?

2-Can I run a longer hose from the discharge port to put the pressure guage inside the Jeep?

3-What the heck do I do with the condenser and all the other crap?

Every Sanden OBA write-up or guide I have seen has shown nothing about wiring and this is where I'm confused. Everything else I have pretty much handled. Oh and I don't plan on running a tank for awhile so I wanted to know if the above things would work. Any help at all will be appreciated.

Without a tank, you'll be hard pressed to air up your tires. It will do it but really slow, it will also make it work way too hard.

I'm running a sanden. I have it wire to a switch inside the cab. There are only 2 wires, hot and ground.

I was afraid of that. I guess I'll have to scrounge around for a decent tank then. So then could I reuse the wires that turn on my A/C now and wire them to a toggle instead of the 3-way switch for low-med-high settings?
