On my old jeep I had a connector on the bumper but left a capped male fitting in the female to keep it from being plugged with crap.
No pics handy - and it will be awhile before I can shoot some (this AM I gotta rescue my brother - he got caught in the storm front on his show bike so he's hunkered down 3 hrs from home awaiting me and my trailer - and tomorrow I leave for the Bahamas for a week....
My Viair is under the hood (brake booster bracket mount) with a manifold to the tank (low behind the radiator), from the manifold is my air lines into the cab and under the bumper. I used 1/4 DoT poly air brake line, and the sleeved compression fittings
(no push locks - they leak when they get hot). Where I mounted connects - I used a 1/4 pipe bulkhead fitting and some "extra" pieces from other projects (one was a left over trailer plug bracket, one was a bracket from something I dont know) - the ferrule fitting screws into the back of the bulkhead and the quick connect into the front!
Leaving a fitting chucked with a capped plug like you did works - but the seal and spring in the female side will give up sooner... no big its like a buck to replace it. But I found these and they snap on pretty tight and look cool in place:
For work hose - THIS
is the cats meow - super light - easy to coil and store (round jumper cable bag storing cables and hose). I shortened it to 25' and used the 75 for shop "leaders" (first 4' of air hose to tool - makes handling drill etc a lot easier - I hate fighting the yellow coil leaders as much as the heavy rubber hose). It says on-line only but our local store stocks it.
