On-Board Air mounting suggestions

Ok, so I bit the bullet and bought the Viair 444C Dual Pack with a 5 Gallon air tank.
Anyone mount these or similar? Looking for the best place, out of the way, to mount the compressors. I'm sure someone has done some creative mounting out there.
Thanks in advance

I don't have an ex, but here's how I mounted mine. I used the factory step bar brackets to mount my tank to the frame. Whatever you do, mount the compressors straight up, not upside down or sideways. Do you have any room along the frame rails to mount the tank and or compressors?

Realtrainhorns.net. Family owned and operated company, I've had nothing but good things with them, had some problems due to error on my end and he shipped me 2 items 2 different times free of charge. Lifetime warranty on the horns.

Here's a YouTube clip of me blasting them:
