My install came out very nice-My pump is mounted right behind (to the side) the passenger battery. The relay and grounds are right above the vacuum reservoir, and my tank (2 gallon rectangular) is mounted in the bed, directly above the wheel well on the passenger side (the space above the wheel opening is wasted anyway). It works well. I got the 220psi upgrade when I bought my kit, going to turn it up a bit more.
My main concern with it coming on at 12psi is that I'll go through fluid very quickly-but I suppose it can't hurt anything. 2 bucks a gallon isn't too bad, and in the summer I'll run half washer fluid, half distilled water if it goes too fast. The biggest holdup with installation was the tank-I couldn't see using the tiny tank included with the kit. It was just ridiculous. I'd be filling it every day. Given the fact that it was going in the bed, and space wasn't really an object, I figured go big. I wanted a nice rectangular, or square tank for aesthetics, as being in the bed it was going to be seen. After browsing ebay on and off for a few months, I finally found the perfect specimen. Cost me 14 bucks with shipping included. I mounted it with tie downs I cut (I just used the nylon braided parts and screws/washers). Figured there was less chance of them abrading the tank over time.
Honestly, I couldn't be happier. Seeing that green light come on (I mounted the LED directly below my esof 4x4 switch-the LED that came wit the kit burned out after 20 seconds of illumination, it's replacement is a very nice radioshack unit with built in resistor allowing for safe sustained 12v operation-$2.95) and watching the EGT's DROP still makes me giddy! Can't wait to tow with it.
