    just do some googling. Looks like you could mount it to any onboard air bracket and put it by the air filter housing.

    Thanks man, I guess I’m looking for a bracket that I can use to rest it on. All the ones I’ve seen are for ARB. I also saw a mounted one in the engine bay but it was for a 4Runner but I don’t know if the dimensions are the same.

    I don't have any links. Just did a Google search for "smittybilt air compressor in tacoma engine bay" and that's what's popped up, ha. More than likely you'll have to just grab a bracket and see if it will work or just modify one so it will. A lot of those brackets should work for multiple compressors.

    I have my Viair in that location, but I made my own bracket. I’m no fabricator but it was easy, cut and bend with no welding. There are several unused threaded inserts and studs to tie into.
