    I had a MF-1050 compressor I wanted to add to the tacoma in case of a flat or airing back up after a trail ride. After looking around, I found out I could make this compressor fit in the large storage compartment and still be able to shut the cover.

    Really easy to do, cut a notch in the compartment, run the wiring down to the 7 pin connector. Black is Hot, White is ground on the harness. Gonna go grab a 3' air line and mount it under the bumper for a quick disconnect and keep the 20' line under the back seat.I kept the gauge on the compressor only as a plug since you can't see it while airing up.

    Cool ideal...but aren't you worried about that thing getting trashed by everything that gets kicked from on and off road?

    I think I would have just made a place to run a hose...but be able to plug up the whole..

    But big points for ingenuity!

    It's actually up there pretty high, Picture makes it look exposed but it's out of the way. The air intake is a 1/2" away from the cover, unless I'm in deep water it'll be fine.
