    Installed an ARB compressor a couple months back but just got to cleaning up the install, so here are some pics.

    I made this bracket to bolt to existing studs on fender well. Also used existing hole for the relay.

    Ran wiring along existing loom on firewall.

    Hooked 12v constant to terminal in fuse block, ground to battery ground on fender wall and ran the switch wires through the loom near the steering column.

    I had to take apart the whole damn dash to get to the location where I wanted to put the switch. Next to the A-TRAC and AUX

    Here is the switch location I chose. The only blank spot I had for a toggle is now occupied. I did have to trin off the backing material used for Toyota toggles and open up the hole very little vertically.

    I think it turned out great. Works wonderfully. Thanks to my cousin Jimmy for the hook up at 4Wheel Parts.

    Just used the one that came in the install kit when I bought the compressor. I am not installing the lockers as I already have the factory locker in the rear. I don't get into it enough to install a front locker at this time.

    Anywho, looking good. Any pics on compressor and how you mounted it?

    All that shit pops apart nice and quick luckily. It took about an hour I guess.

    Back from the dead!

    Any tips or instructions for pulling the dash apart?

    I'm having trouble finding a thread where a guy put the 2009 + ATRAC/AUX/12v panel (pictured in your first post) in his 2007.

    I'm ready to do the same thing with my 2007 to have more switch locations.


    EDIT: Found it
