    I put mine on my Passenger side innner wheel...
    If I didn't have a inner...
    I would probably put it in the cab of the truck...
    So Dust & Mud won't kill the compressor... /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    1st on the inner fender, then when that went away, behind the driver's seat. The electric stuff is always happier with a cleaner environment.

    I don't have fenders at all, or a factory heater. I mounted a panel to cover the huge square hole left by the heater removal. I mounted a rubber grommet so the airline could go through the panel and the compressor is out of major harm's way under the dash. Not very loud and easily accessible. (but of course, not for everybody)

    Ya, I guess its going inside somewere. Guess that means I have to start thinking about were everything is gonna go in the overall plan (ie rollcage, batteries, tool storage, etc). Thanks for the ideas guys. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yeah mine will probably end up on the inside of the firewall behind the glovebox now.
