    i have my viair oba setup halfway installed. 2.5 gallon tank. my main roadblock is finding a space to fit the tank under the bed, while keeping the spare in the stock location. is this possible? anyone have some pics of where they mounted the tank?

    I put a 3 gal tank under the bed near the right rear leaf springs. Bolted up through the bed. My bed mat covered the head of the bolts.

    good idea, thanks for the tip. i just read your oba thread, it looks like that tank placement might work for my setup. even though my tank is a little longer i think ill be able to shoehorn it in there

    Another bump, I'm looking to get a OBA kit, so I'm trying to soak up all information possible. Any word on your (or others) install? What about recommendations on a certain model or kit? (viair or arb) Thanks a lot guys
