Here's my onboard air system: around $160 with more speed and capacity than any other system :rock:

I offer a few different mounting options for the JT. I have one for the bed that mounts the single ARB compressor and one that holds the Twin ARB compressor and it also has an optional protective guard. No pics to show yet, but I also have a universal mount that works with the single or twin that mounts in the cab with a few different air chuck solutions. I am finishing prototypes within the next few days and be able to show the pre-production pieces for that one. Let me know if anyone has any questions.

I'm interested to see what you have for bed mounted twin ARB setups.

Any updates? Still trying to figure out best solution. I have a 10# power tank mounted in bed, but trying to figure out how to get an ARB twin in there or in the cab as a backup (or maybe future primary).

Hey, I just released a mount that hold either the twin or single ARB compressor. It mounts behind the rear seat on the driver's side. There is an optional dual air chuck / rocker switch plate that goes under the rear seat on driver's side. It replaces the stock plastic hardware box that holds all the door/top/windshield bolts. My plate still has holes for all the bolts, plus the 4 door stop bolts. message me direct if you want more info!

Sent a PM yesterday. I’m curious how the plumbing/electrical runs for both back seat options. With the kid seat in the back not sure the under seat option is feasible for me.

Jeremy (813FAB) did a quick youtube video to explain the configuration. It was up lastnight, but seems to be removed now. Maybe he is doing a revision. My bracket should be here this week and i will have a detailed plumbing/wiring/mounting install video to follow. You shouldnt have to worry about the back seat being an issue unless you utilize the long quick chuck.

I just ordered the ACM mount from Waya-Eddie-life store.

I know it's only a single compressor mount but I like having it completely out of the way.

Are you not worried it is a little too open to the elements? What about water crossings?

I am totally in agreement in that I want it out of the way too, but I am just worried about above.

It's a concern but I've had a similar setup in my (now sold) FJ Cruiser for 3 years with no issues. In the engine bay of the FJC the ARB experienced heat, dust and lots of water (from OCD washing). It never skipped a beat. I don't do deep water crossing in CO but I could see how submersion is a legitimate concern. As with any of our mods, this particular one fits my needs :)

The ACM mount does seem to be protected pretty well by the inner fender liner if you still hav yours in place.

Yes, I had the video up talking about a few different air line configurations and took it down for a revision. Once I had it up I spoke with a few others that mentioned the plastic press-to-connect tee joints had some issues and one reported rupture due to heat. I am revising and making a new video. Watch for it on my YouTube channel this week. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdp8yBwDt_F1qsBCyqHwiSA
