On board air compressor location

Hey guys, where are you mounting your controls for the air bags inside the cab?

I have a Firestone setup and was trying to decide where to mount the control panel that came with the compressor kit.

Pictures are worth a thousand words!

Thanks

Neil

I used the cubbie hole by the drink holder. Had to bend the gauge's bracket so I could see it and use it with ease. Top gauge is my airbag PSI. Bottom one lets me know how much air is in my tanks.

If you have a cts insight, you can buy the air psi eas connector and read air pressure right on the cts- that's what I did.

Thanks! That is a 5 gallon tank. I positioned the shelf so that I could add another 5 gallon tank if I wanted too. If I do add another one I'd put a valve in between the feed line to the 2nd tank.

Love it, you use it for your bags only? Ever tried air tools or anything else?

No bags, Nathan train horns and one quick connect added on the tank after that pic, I mainly use it blow out the truck and my clothes after workin. It'll air up a tire that's low on air and take off the lug nuts if I breakem lose with the tire iron

Nice great job as always, still got to do your projector mod too! Love that even more. Will probably go for a larger compressor and larger tank(s) when I do mine, work in the tire industry and always have uses for air so might as well have it on my truck too
