    I just installed a 400P underhood on a homemade bracket using the studs on the passenger side inner fender near the firewall. It's big but I oriented similarly to @vinkon235 in the post above. I debate hard mount vs keeping it portable, but decided there was room under the hood so why not use it. Car break-ins are a fact of life where I live so I'd also like to keep it hidden and put other stuff behind and under the rear seats and not leave anything visible. I have the JBL woofer which takes valuable storage space. Next project is a bag or box for recovery gear in front of the battery.

    I had it previously, well worth the money. If all you plan on using it for is airing up works perfect.

    Bigger one just airs up a bit faster, can run lockers and some air tools as well.
    Old TJ I had was built up by some shop here then they sold it so I picked it up and it came with the compressor, when the TJ shit the bed parted everything out, kept the compressor for myself.

    You wrote about me being incorrect about gas laws before. Newton's law of cooling works fine for this thought experiment.

    Sorry I didn't do a step by step by step20160803_120422.jpg 20160804_072422.jpg 20160808_074146.jpg .What I did was make a simple 1/4 inch mounting plate to utilize the three studs on the
    pass. side fender well.I had already installed an 80 amp bussman aux relay box to tap into for power.My cost for compressor and bracket was $250.I had a couple hours getting the bracket correct.Maybe 6-8 hours altogether running wiring etc. The back leg on the bracket is 1 5/8 inch overall
