Talking on board air compressor

I am interested in mounting a portable 5-7gal air tank under my truck bed and i need to have a 12v air compressor to fill the tank. I was thinking an air compressor i could regulate, I would like to use it to fill tires or drive a 1/2" impact. I would like to mount the compressor under the hood, I dont know if I have the space though, and run a 3/8" hose back to the tank any one done this or can help out with the idea?

I havent done it to a PSD but i have done it with a ranger. I would put a relay in with a saftey switch so when it reaches a set PSI it will shut off.

I have a 5 gallon tank and no way it would fit under the hood. I removed my spare (used to run 8" lift with 37's so was useless) and mounted my tank, compressor, and train horns all where my spare used to be. I have a 200psi compressor so plenty to fill tires and run air tools.

ahh, that makes more sense. I have a ViAir 380C (i think that is the model) and it would fit under the hood.

I have a company that makes one that runs off of your pulley system... you could mount that easily under the hood... otherwise all my trucks and compressors and train horns are all where the spare tires used to be under the truck...

PM me if you want some pricing

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned
