    ok so to start im building th system to be able to run some tool and air up my tires from my truck. basicly so far i went to pepboys and picked up a MF1040 for about $35 and a 7 gal tank from walmart $30

    heres everything layed out and how it will be connected except the small black hose will be changed for a longer one so that it will come out in the bed box and i plan to move the gauge from the tank to the end of the hose in the box.

    also the compressor will be mounted in the driver side bed box and hose from tank will come back to this box. i want to mount the tank under the bed probably in front of the spare tire but i have to get under and see where it will fit first.

    ok so this is where i could use some help. im having a hard time finding a pressure switch in any stores and i would prefer to buy from a store and no the interent please let know if anyone has seen them anywhere, btw i live in Ridley Park,pa 19078.

    next issue my tank only have feet on one side so i need help figureing out how to support the other side. the tank is about 11 inch in dia. keep in mind i dont have a welder or know anyone around me that could just weld on another set of feet.

    any help you can give would be great. thanks




    Edit: I have found a 5 gal tank and finialized what i want the end to be.

    I may add another tee at the end of the hose to add a pressure switch or i will add it later on.

    but i have to wait for the weather to get better before i want to spend the time under my truck to install this and i have to return one of the tees i have since its cracked.

    I mounted my compressor in the drivers side storage compartment in the bed. My compressor looks exactly like yours, but it red. I had to cut out a piece to let it protrude through the top.

    I only have a 4 gallon tank, so I used some long hose clamp (like this) to secure the tank to the bottom of the same storage compartment by cutting 4 slots in the compartment and feeding it through. It keeps everything in a good spot and doesn't get in the way of the spare.

    I have the tow package and tapped into the remote signal there for my relay.

    It was really quite simple after it was all done.

    What PSI is that compressor/tank rated for?

    Good luck!

    do they make hose clamps big enough to fit around it my tank has a dia of at least 11 inchs. the compressor is rated at a 150 psi max and the tank is rated at 125.

    Hey i'm working on almost the same setup as you are. I used water heater straps to strap my tank to the bed. I stuffed it up in the rear fender well. i had to cut off the handle and the bottom part of the tank though.

    When I installed my OBA I bought a pressure switch. On when below 90 psi & off at 120 psi. I took it out because my compressor was not very powerful and usually only reached 110 psi. I still have the switch if you want it, I will sell it to you for $10 + shipping.


    I mounted my tank under the bed. But it looks like yours is larger than mine (lol).

    has anyone mounted a 7 gal tank under the truck somewhere. i think if i pull down all the plastic in the wheel well i should beable to just slide my tank where db67fm mounted his but the only way i can get it there would be to pull apart the wheel well which would be a bitch.

    If it was me I would get a smaller diameter but a longer tank. I have posted some pics of mine if you want some different ideas.

    ok so now im 99% sure i can fit my tank in the back cornor of the behind the tire. only problem is my tanks so wide i have to either remove the plastic from the wheel well and side it it from there or remove the bumper and side it in that way any suggestions on what would be easiest? btw can't just go straight up cuz the bottom of the bed sides curve in just enough so it can't squeeze in lol

    you could find tanks cheap all over ebay. and i would use a better compressor, that doesnt look like its very powerful. id suggest using a viair 380 or something similar with 100% duty cycle.
