I have an ARB Dual Compressor, I am curious how people are mounting it in a JL?

<EDITED WITH UPDATED THREAD INFO>

MORE bracket
Con: I am not that happy about the spot for when I have the hard top off...

Up Down Air skid mount
Con: Mounts low and ARB compressor cannot handle being submerged in water

Con: Due to the air vent, it is mounted really far back... fear my kids will kick it all day

Con: I usually have a trunk full of stuff when wheeling, so getting access to the under storage would be annoying

I am hoping someone comes up with an engine bay solution or I will do it in the rear under were that storage compartment is. there was a link on here where he did that.

When my JL arrives, I'll check under the hood to see if I can find a spot to mount it on. If not, I'll install it inside the rear cargo cubby.

Quick question, what is the benefit of a compressor (ARB or Viar) versus using a Power Tank. The Power Tank's seem to have more capabilities and air faster.

Thanks for the help

Looking at the install instructions, it appears to mount just forward of the fuel tank.

Bigger issue is this isn’t a real option. The ARB is not water proof unless you unscrew the intake filters and replace them with plugs while not in use. That is straight from ARB. It can handle a splash or two but crossing that creek is a no go.

I have both, but don’t like the size and weight of the Power Tank, and don’t like when it runs out on the trail, and I have to get it refilled.

No room under the JL seat.

I am going to be looking at mounting it high up in the passenger footwell. High enough to be out of the way, limit the amount of wires to run, easily accessible, and not visible from the outside. How to do it starts today. Under the hood would be ideal for me, but it is tight fit under there. I contacted Terraflex on the under the seat mount and they said their JK mount would not work in the JL. I contacted EVO a week ago about under the hood and they have do not have one for the JL.
