    Where have y'all been mounting your ARB compressors for powering lockers? I'm having the dilemma of deciding where I want to mount it. I'm thinking either the driver side cubby in the bed or behind the rear seats for double cab.

    I don't have an installed picture but I used the Expedition Essentials mount that replaces the cubby in the bed.

    https://expeditionessentials.com/

    The fist picture is just the mockup of the compressor in the mount
    The second picture was a test fit installation.
    The third picture shows how tight the fit is with a @Pelfreybilt HC bumper.

    Nice I hadn't seen that one before. Unfortunately I have a single compressor and not the twin so I don't think I'll be using that mount.

    Thanks, I like that mount and it would be the one I'd buy if I mount it in the bed. I'm going to be using the single compressor with a 1-gallon vlair tank so I'd have to mount the tank elsewhere. Probably in the spare tire location. My only issue with that mount is it's not sealed and those cubbies are right behind the rear wheels. It gets dirty as hell's dustbowl in there.

    It's this one here. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000YC7GAQ/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

    It's not large. I haven't bought it yet because what fittings I need change depending on where I decide to mount the compressor.

    Yes Yes it does. My bed has a shell on it and I haven't had a chance to finish putting the cubby door back on so the inside of the bed/shell is dusty has hell right now.

    Check My Sig.
    I used the Slee Off Road mount. It moves your power steering resivoir and puts the compressor nice and snug in the engine bay.

    I do have a 2nd gen though. Not sure what they made for 3rd.

    Under the hood. Passenger side. I'd never put that shit in the cab. Too loud.

    Yeah I would never put it in the cab.
    I wouldn't even put it there if I was just using it for airing up tires.

    Pretty sure you just need the manifold for lockers.

    Lockers and Air tools, but not for use I'd consider to be prolonged, mostly for airing up tires. If I did choose to mount the tank in the spare tire location, I would have plent of room for a larger tank.
    Yeah I had a shell on my last truck and am no stranger to that haha. I suppose with the EE mount I could just go crazy with the silicon and try to seal it up. If that were the case I'd probably mount a couple computer fans in there for cooling.

    Any of you know this asshole by chance?

    He has $2k in Kings that he was already refunded for when he cancelled his order. But he wants $400 to hand them back over to Fedex

    Exactly. Very far. Just curious if anyone happens to know him. The distributor is going to refund the $2k, but it isn't worth the legal fees to charge him with fraud, so he'll probably keep the shocks and his money
