PostSubject: Onboard Air Help   Wed 18 Apr 2012, 10:56 pm

So, I'm fortunate enough that my dad decided to get the Warn Powerplant and gave me his Viair Compressor. I also got a Viar 2.5 Gallon airtank that fits perfectly in the winch opening of my new LoD front bumper (yes I'm in the doghouse right now!!). I'm pretty sure I know what I need to get to connect the compressor to tank, but want to get some second opinions.

Here's what I think I need, let me know if I'm missing anything:
OBA hookup kit (to connect compressor to tank) - http://www.quadratec.com/products/92043_100.htm
Mount for compressor - http://www.quadratec.com/products/92043_1203.htm
Misc. fittings for tank - http://www.quadratec.com/products/92043_104.htm

Is this all I need?

what about the actual air hose hook up point???? Where and how are you hooking up your hose?

Yeah, I'm still not 100% sure the best way. I think I need to run an air hose to the pressure switch from the compressor (switch included in hookup kit mentioned above). From that, another hose will go to the tank. Before the switch I will have a tee-fitting that the air hose will connect to (this: http://www.quadratec.com/products/92043_125.htm).

I guess I'm going for something similar to this:

You need the mounting block where everything come together. The switch, gauge. Etc!

I'd get with Jeff. He installed his just like that picture above.

Is you dad giving you most of the air lines? if not, you'll need air lines from the compressor to the dist block, to the tank. I may have an extra coupler for you. I just have to check to see if it's 3/8" or 1/4." What size fittings are you going with? 3/8" more than likely, right?

Thanks for the responses guys. However, I'm going to go a different route...may end up getting a winch and just use the compressor without a tank. I do need some ideas on where to mount the compressor. It's too big to fit in front of the battery and the bracket that mounts to the brake master cylinder isn't made to support my compressor (I have the Viair 450H) per the bracket manufacturer.

Get with Brett Woods at Dominion Off-Road...that is his product which I am installing right now and might be able to get the brackets from him! Very Happy (brettwoods@gmail.com)

Art, you can get with someone on here with a welder (Renee, Sascha, Jeff are pretty close to you) and just add gussets under the bracket from scrap 1/8" plate or strap.

BTW, you can also install it under one of the front seats. I know, "it's too loud to install under the seat." But are you going to be IN the jeep when you're running the compressor? NOPE!! and it being under the seat should muffle it quite a bit. You may have to remove the seat and fab a bracket to mount it on it's side.

I spoke with Brett a couple days ago, he's the one who told me that bracket wasn't meant for the 450H. His concern is about the leverage on the master cylinder bolts from the added weight of the compressor (not the strength of the bracket).
