where to mount tank and filter

888 10
just wandering where you have mounted your air tanks? under the bed on a cross member or in the bed? do you still have the spare tire?

im also trying to figure out a good spot for the air filter. most i have seen have been under the hood and the other was way2hi's and his was mounted on the frame behind the rear wheel. I think the kp will interfer in that spot

my tanks are goin in the bed, 2 8 gallon tanks valvees on tank, i have this fear of having a leak and being stranded somewhere and not being able to get access ot my valves tank and stuff...

plus it looks like some sorts deadly bomb and is a nice conversation topic @ the cruises " WHAT THE HELL IS ALL THAT FOR???"

Do you have your tank already? I have the KP tank going in, it's 6 gallons and they sell brackets to mount iit to your frame. I don't know for sure you have room to mount two of these, but I bet you do .. I'm gonna mount mine so I have room to mount another down the road. Right now I just have one 3 gallon in my bed, but thats gonna be going soon. About $75 for the tank and mounts. Spare tire will be in the bed with a cover on it.

I removed my spare tire crossmembers and mounted my tanks on new crossmembers made of 2" L bar. They worked great, but I'd suggest some 2" or 2X3 box tubing instead. I have my comps mounted on two other 1" L bar crosmmembers that run behind the tanks.

That is how my tank is mounted as well. On a crosspiece that runs between the frame and the compressor, tank, valves, pressure senders are all on it. Worked out nicely and is totally hidden.
