    I have a 6 1/2 gallon compressor tank that I am going to mount in my '91 Burb. It is a regular cylinder shape from an old home compressor. Anyone ever mount one anywhere but under the hood? Where and how?

    I pulled what I think is about a 5 gallon tank off of an old freightliner and used the existing mounting brackets to mount it up inside of my rear fenderwell. I have a stepside though.
