Not yet! Still trying to find the best place to install. Slee Off-road which is local, sells a bracket for the engine bay so I may go that route.

I'm also looking into the air hose kits. Not sure if the arb kit is worth $40. Harbor Freight sells a kit for $9.99.

I am using the Powertank hose on mine with a quick disconnect.
This way the hose works with both the ARB compressor, and my Powertank.
You should be able to go to a hardware store and get one.

It just screws into the front of the compressor outlet.



If you add a tank later, you get the hose from the tank to the compressor.
I bought mine direct from ARB since they are local to me.
You then just out that brass QD into your tank, then the line into the QD.
I added the tank not long after my installation.

The compressor will probably be happier though if you can mount it elsewhere besides the engine bay.

I really like that metal bracket yours is attached to Corey! I could remove the plastic storage pieces behind the rear seats and add something like that. I like the idea of shielding it from the elements.

Can I ask why you use a tank? Is it for faster tire inflation?

Thanks!
I got the tank so I could run an air drill but the air drill still bogs down.
The air drill runs best with the Powertank since I can crank up the pressure higher.
But the tank lets the impact wrench work great, but it would work OK too without it since the impact is a much shorter burst than using a drill.

The tank helps a little bit with the tires, but not really needed.

If you Google Springtail Solutions, you can find that bracket I use for the compressor and the Powertank on their site.
Made for an FJ, but I bet you could get it to work.
