Air Bag PSI Pressure Gauge Mounting Location

Just bought a Firsestone in cab air compressor kit with airbags and was wondering where everyone is mounting their leveling control panel/gauge and switch. Doesn't seem like there's very much room to mount it discretely and out of the way. Was thinking of putting it in the cubby hole just to the left of the cub holders on the transmission hump. Seems like reading the gauge might be an issue though. Any thoughts or pictures of your install is appreciated.

Bump

Anyone have any ideas? Installing mine on Monday. So far, it looks like the cubby hole to the left of the drink holders that are on the floor. Kind of a crappy location but it seems like the only place to mount it.

Why don't you get a universal single pod and put it under that cubby hole your talking about, and then put the switch somewhere on the dash.

I gave up and bought the air-lift wireless, I'm happy with it.

The gauge that came with my Firestone kit is self contained. Already comes with the gauge and switch mounted in a bracket.

Ryan, nice setup. Unfortunately, I have the electronic 4x4 option so I have the selector switch where your PSI gauge is. However, that is a great location to mount it.

Sorry for the hyjack; Ryan

How did you come up with the USB/110V panel that is installed in the first photo where a factory 12v normally resides? Maybe a previous discussion? Looks nicely made....

This is what I ended up doing. I'm going to add a PSI gauge underneath the airbag PSI gauge so I know how much air is left in my tanks so I can activate the upfitter switch that powers the compressor.
