    Greetings!

    One of my favorite mods on my JK was my ARB compressor that was mounted under the hood. It was one of the most useful modifications I had aside from a lift.

    Point being, has anyone considered mounting locations for Compressors? The JL engine bay is pretty tight, so I assume the JT isn't any better.

    Let's get the conversation started!

    A lot of guys who have pick up trucks that want to hard wire them either mount them in the bed if they have a cap or mount it high above the rails under the bed between the inner and outer skins.
    Personally, I prefer to carry a portable compressor so that I can share it if needed.

    I have a small one from Audew - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07P2XDN7D/ref=dp_cerb_2, it does the job for my car and my gf's car but I am not sure if it is rated for 4x4 :)... the big tires etc... even though it says it is... But, I still am going to get that product from Innovative JK products...

    I bought this one a couple of years ago and it has held up very well.
    I’m running 35” E rated tires on my truck camper (80 psi in back) and it has done the trick.

    The only thing I did to improve it was to replace the wire from the alligator clips with a heavier gauge one that is longer to make it easier to reach all my tires on my crew cab long bed truck (21’ long).

    I bought it on sale for about $75.

    I really want something with a tank. So I'm thinking I'm going to end up mounting this in the bed, possibly on one of the sides... still thinking that through...

    Is there an aftermarket solution where we can use an aux switch button to inflate and deflate air? I remember seeing that in one of the Mercedes 6X6 G Wags...

    There is another post where someone is proposing that... you would need to wire them to relays since, if I’m not mistaken those buttons are wet contacts, they always have voltage (needs confirmation).

    Here is the post:

    My personal opinion is that the effort to figure this out is equal to getting a winch with a long enough remote, or a wireless remote, that could just go in the cab. Personal opinion. But, if there is no better use for the aux switches, then yea...
