Spod, ARB compressor and Vacuum Pump Relocation

This is for my 2012, and I'm far away from home so I'm looking for possible solutions.

I have an arb compressor mounted on an EVO mount over the brake booster. I have an expedition one front bumper and relocated the vacuum assist pump under the hood with their bracket. The spod mounts in the same location. I've seen others recommend a teraflex relocation kit but the arb compressor is mounted in that location.
I have cut off the factory bracket for the bump, as well as the "crash bar" under the bumper.

So assuming I don't have a way to weld a bracket on somewhere else, can anyone think of another off the shelf bracket that might work?

I'm guessing if I want to use all of these things I'll have to find someone to weld the relocation bracket to the arb compressor bracket or somewhere else behind the bumper. Not the end of the world but it means I have to figure it out when I get home instead of order a quicker solution.

Different bumper manufacturers have different methods of relocating the vacuum pump. My JCR bumper came with a bracket that mounts the pump behind the bumper but sideways on the frame (minor cutting required). I'm sure they would sell you the relocation kit separately. I also have the spod and arb/evo setup. I'd look around at the different relocate kits that come with the bumpers and see if it might work with your setup.
