Air compressor install

I've had a Viair compressor and tank lying around for a few years, decided to put it on the truck to have air on the tow rig also.

Where are you guys installing it? I'm thinking of making a bracket for it to sit on under the truck, but a little worried about gunking it up.

Thoughts?

I have mine mounted behind my rear seat on a custom bracket. For as little as it runs, I can deal with the little noise and it is out of the elements

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!
