Woods VIAIR OBA Install

Hey guys Woods has been working to get this kit together for guys like me who like one stop shopping. The kit is ready to install with super clear and idiot proof directions ( i need those).

Here is the kit after i unboxed everything.....



I started with getting some of the fittings installed on the manifold.



Once the Maniflod was secured to the compressor mount it was time to slide her in. For removing the 2 nuts on the brake booster, if you have fat fingers like i do it works great to just pull the wheel well liner and VIOLA they are right there





As you can see this setup works perfect with the sPOD



Next I moved onto mounting the tank and i hit the first obstacle...... Woods designed his mounts to have the U bolts run over the cross member, well I have the Offroad Evo Sector Shaft brace so that was not going to work. So i installed them on the top of the cross member with the U Bolts running under the brackets. The only concern i have now is that it moved the tank up a bit so I will have to keep and eye on the engine temp and make sure shes getting enough air flow.










I went back to making a few more of the plumbing connections before i called it a night and I will promise you that this is a super easy install. It took me less than an hour to get to this point before calling it quits to spend some time with the family.

Ill take a picture tomm of it from the bottom. It actually sits higher than it looks and does not intrude with the filter at all.

I'm gonna assume that you have a 6-spd manual xmission, because I can't imagine the setup working with an Auto and restricting the radiator airflow--low---

Man Ol John put a lot of work in designing that sPOD, SOURCE platform--My ARB compressor clears it well also, but it looks like changing the oil filter would be a PITA

I do have an Auto and have never had issues with cooling and my winch is directly infront of the grill

the tank only blocks about 1.5 inches of the lower radiator.





Ill keep an eye on the tranny temp as well as the engine temp with my aeroforce gauge.


the filter is no more difficult to acess than before

Good luck, didn't you get the J30 recall on the auto cooling ???

Our JK's are similar in equipment--You didn't say whether or not you have an aux xmission cooler, I'm afraid you're on borrowed time right now--maybe not--it's your jeep so you know how it survives !!

Good looker too

nope no aux cooler either i have been running it hard for 20k with the current set up and no issues in the high dez heat. I drive roughly 200 miles a day round trip. I do keep a constant eye on the tranny temp and it has only ever got above 200 deg once. but i service my tranny every 10k and i think that helps to keep the heat down to have good clean fresh fluid in it

Thanks for the write up Doc.
I just got the 20001 from Woods during the Group buy
I've been trying to decide where to install the tank until now!
Is yours the 2½gal. tank?
I'm looking forward to the rest of your install.
Thanks again

There's been lots of xmission heat troubles and we're in the minority, without problems

Stay KEWL !!

I know the tranny temps are the reason i bought the aeroforce gauge. Mine is an 07 and i have never had an issue with the heat in three years. worst case ill remove the sectorshaft brace or relocate the tank somewhere.
