I dont have OBA, but I'd mount a tank (or two) in front of the rear tires under the bed. Somewhere in that cavernous space, either between the frame rails or on the outsides.

thats what im thinking, throw a 5 gallon in there and run 2 lines one to the front and one to the back and hook a quick connect in at each point.

yeah, my truck has the compressor under the hood (which seems to stay clean, even when driving through mud) and the tank in the bed under the tool box.

I have my ARB compressor bolted to the top of the inner fender behind the battery, but it is only for my locker. For filling tires, my on board air is going to be one of these (the blue one is on order):

My ARB Compressor (for my Locker) is mounted to the front driver's side fender well. Im going to get a 5 gallon tank and Viair 480c for OBA, just not sure where to mount mine either.

(for my train horns) Then i welded a box to go around the compressor to keep it out of the elements. However, mounting in a toolbox is the best method.

what size air tank is that yngbld? a pair of those in my box wouldn't take up much space and would clean up the install a lot.

I put mine in between the body and the frame rail under the drivers side door. Above the e-brake line basically. But I have an OBS so there might not be as much room. I really like the in the box idea. If I had a pick-up that is where I would be putting it.

I'll try and get a pic up later this afternoon.

sure works great for nuts and bolts

won't fill up tires
won't blow dust out of your interior
can't run train horns
won't fill helper bags.
