I have mine mounted on the driver side behind the tcase skid. Basically opposite side of the muffler. I made some brackets for the tank which clamp onto the frame. I can get you some pics later.

not sure if the one in this thread is from northridge but it may help to see it anyway.

This is next on my Jeeps wish list. Is mounting behind the Tcase common?

That seems like a very impact prone place and would certainly be damaged at some point. I was thinking under the hood in the back drive side, in front of the firewall (I think theres room) though I haven't measured. Anyone mounted this tank under the hood?

The hotter the air the more it will expand...im guessing that putting it under the hood will mean the more work for the compressor to fill the tank....but i have no idea.

I think it is pretty common to put the air tank behind the T-Case. I have seen some people mount it under the hood and behind the rear seat.

I have had mine on for only one year now and I have done some pretty rocky trails and nothing has hit it yet. I believe this has to do with the breakover angle the Wrangler has. If I do manage to get close to hitting it, the tcase skid plate usually hits it first and by the time it gets close to the air tank the rear tire is climbing so it clears.

I love having my OBA system. Airing up and running air tools off of your jeep is a nice option to have.
