Installing an ARB OBA compressor soon, tips?

I have an ARB CKMA12 sitting here waiting to be installed but I am a little intimidated by it. I have already decided I want to mount it under the hood on the ABS tray. When looking through the instructions I got a little confused because all of the diagrams and even the step by step instructions keep referencing lockers. I am not doing an Air Locker install (yet) so is it pretty much plug and play? Has anyone else done this install?

I just installed that compressor a few weeks ago. I also have lockers so I wired them in as well. I think the only difference is you will only wire the compressor switch. Leave the Hex head screws in that cover where the locker solenoids would go and the air should be diverted to the small tank where you'll hook up your air line. At least that's how I think it should work. Goss luck. I found mounting the compressor on the tray near the drivers side firewall to be the most difficult part.
