Do you have the all weather floor mats? If so do they still fit without modification in the rear?
Yes I have the rubber Mopar mats and no they don’t fit without modification. I cut probably 3 inches off the front edge of the mat to make it fit. It looks fine and those inches were way under the seat anyway. There’s still plenty of room for a rear seat passenger’s feet.
All in I’m happy I waited for this mount, I think it’s a good solution.

I installed my ARB dual compressor today using ARB’s new underseat mount. It’s much further under the seat than the other underseat product I’ve seen.

Nice product, terrible instructions!



Am I correct that this mount requires cutting the air flow vent that runs under the seat?
Thanks

I went with UPDOWN AIR. underseat mount and their quick connect system for airing up and down all four tires at one time. Install was pretty easy.

It will require ear plugs! I feel like mine is loud, and it’s under the hood. I couldn’t imagine it in the cab.

I turn mine on to fill my 2 gallon tank before I air up. It’s also a 4 door and my family doesn’t usually all get out when I air up...

That’s just not true. One of the reasons I waited for the ARB mount was that it’s structure and it’s position right under the seat would dampen the noise.... and that’s exactly what it does.

Well I have the @Kansascoast mount and my ARB just went out. Blows the fuses and will only run for a few min. As much as i love it under the hood, the exhaust is just too close to it and makes it overheat.
I have the same mount. I also mounted the air intakes up higher by the master cylinder, still hot air, but not right next to catalytic converter. I also mounted a heat shield. Snagged a couple off a Jeep Patriot in the junkyard (couldn’t find any rigid shields online that weren’t crazy expensive). Hard to take pictures of this area, but here’s the shield to keep some of the heat off the compressor:

I also removed my hood insulation, the motor cover and made my hood vents fully functional - anything to get as much heat out as possible. Also leave the hood up while airing up (which also gives my remote air intakes cooler air)...

Nice, I am looking into putting it in the back

Not really going to help. Hood was open when using it. It's right next to the exhaust manifold.

You may be right, but after I get this $500 compressor refurbished, it's not going back under the hood in that heat.
