New ARB Compressor Install WK2
 
4 Attachment(s)
My 60th birthday present, ARB Built in Air Compressor.

Just installed, no plates or drilling, fitted on bracket in front of fuse box.

Perfect fit, two bolts and one extra screw and nut to steady the plate
as it was floating.

Now all I have to do is install my other present, a GME CB Radio..

That's looks pretty sweet. I'm assuming its safe to say there isn't a way to tie into the built in compressor for the quadra-lift?

Yes it's safe to say... The QL compressor uses no air. It is a closed system

Did you get an inflater kit with it, I'm not seeing a quick coupler. I have an ARB compressor on my JK for the air lockers.

Yes, that's what I got it for, connector is at the center bottom of first pic.

Std air connector, can run air tools as well.

They don't make enough volume for air tools. It'll inflate the 37s on my JK from 8-30psi in about 3 minutes each. Use gloves to disconnect as that coupler is hot after use.

I have a portable tank that I attach and fill, then the tools work ok.

Wow, nice install. I was literally planning on pulling the WK2 apart this weekend to mount my ARB and various other stuff. I test fit it in your spot tonight and should work well. Thanks for the tip!

I saw what you mean about the plate flexing. Where did you put the additional bolt to brace it in place?

Yes. I need this. I'm so tired of waiting to go from 18 psi to 37 psi with my crappy cigarette lighter compressor. Takes about 8-9 minutes per tire.

I did this a while ago, but never posted pics. I attached pics. Worked out pretty well.

It helps to take the mounting legs off of the blue wrapper and mount that first. You also want to re-orient the compressor in the blue sleeve so it all fits properly.

I did the same thing the original poster did with the additional nut & bolt that helps brace the plate. I put red circles around it on my pics to make it a bit clearer.

I ran the wire through the main power grommet behind the glove box. I haven't done the switch yet, as I'm wiring a bunch of other stuff as well, and gonna do all the dash work in one shot.

I put my switch just beside the compressor on the plastic lip, a small rectangle rocker, you have got to open the bonnet to use the compressor anyway, and all is close to the power sources.

Hi

I wanted to fit this to my diesel, but I think it looks a bit different. Would someone pls be able to post a pic of a Hemi engine bay, but without a compressor fitted?

Thanks a lot
Chris
