I may put it in that spot for now until I can get the shelf built. Tired of having paid for a front locker and still running it open.

Maybe this could be a good mounting location on your rig?

Tonight I did another hour's worth of work. Took the metal I already bent and cut it down a little and drilled holes for the side bolts:



And so two mounting options available, 1.:



and 2.:



I like #2 better. Now, just have to figure out how to anchor it on the wheel well, make better measurements and fab up the end product.

I'm still looking at putting it on the firewall like BigOly posted but I'm perplexed as to how they did it. Going to see if there is a write-up for it.

Hmmm, reading the paperwork on the compressor, I can rotate the manifold to re-orient the solenoid and pressure holes relative to each other. This solves one riddle.

I'm still attempting to figure out how the compressor shown sits so low. I wonder if they cut the pinch seam. When I hold mine in the same position, the mounting feet touch the hood seal.

I think I found my solution. Was over at Silas' and checking out the latest trail wear from Moab. Peaked into his engine bay to check how he routed his locker air line. Noticed a module sitting in the big open space I have. Looks to be a cruise control unit. Anyways, it is sitting on this nice, heavy duty bracket. So, I'm off to the dealership tomorrow to order the bracket and I'll deform it into a nice shelf.

Should've snapped a picture while I was there. Maybe if he stops by later to check out the new skidplate.

Test fit the cruise control bracket:



And the compressor:


Have to do some trimming on the bracket and possibly cutting and bending but going to work.

Know I'm way late to the game... but for what it's worth, I was thinking I'd put it there when I ordered it, but when I got it, it's way too heavy to put there without putting nuts on the other side of the metal... I ended up putting it in the same place the OP did, but just shared a bolt with the electronic unit right next to it (toward the front of the truck), and drilled on more hole and bolted it... easy installation.

You could sell the unreliable ARB compressor, and mount one of these :

At least twice, I've seen guys on the Rubicn with a failed ARB compressor. Really pissed off, with all the money they spent on the locker, and can't use it. This was many years ago, so maybe the units are better now.
