Air compressor install
9 Attachment(s)
Since my last trip to Hedland I have been wanting to install my compressor in the car full time and have an air tank so I have compressed air ready all the time.
It took me a while to find a tank that I could use and a place for the compressor to mount.

I decided to fit the airtank underneath at the rear and designed and made a bracket to suit(pic 1,2,3)
I ran power from the battery through a 70amp circuit breaker to the rear of the vehicle into a white box which will become my power distribution box for any future installs. The grey box is the control box for the the compressor which holds the circuit breaker, and the relay for the pressure switch. (pic 4,5,6)

The compressor is mounted in between the outer panel and the inner panel of the rear quarter panel, made up a little bracket to support it and had a great time doing the bolts up that are right at the back. (pic 7)

Took inspiration from JDubya’s post on how to convert the switch blanks from blanks to actual switches, converted 4 of the blanks one each for the compressor, fridge, spotlights, and a spare. (pic8,9)

No the install is complete I am looking at putting a second battery underneath as well as I don’t like carrying things permanently inside the car. This install took me about a week to complete .

Awesome piece of work. I was wondering where I can put a compressor, so this is great inspiration.

Wow! But should be a factory option, at least on QL equipped Jeeps.

If only the Factory QL didn't run a closed circuit. :(

Great job! I'll think about something like that when my cheapy portable dies.
