An Air Commander Engine Driven pump would work as would a York (if you can find one in the correct size). Some people use modified AC's as well.
The Air Commander is over $1000 and the bracket alone for the York stuff is at least half as much as the Air Commander.
Is there any reason (besides outright speed/CFM-delivered) that you want an engine-driven air compressor rather than an electric? Do you plan on running big impact guns and other high-powered tools continuously?
Just wondering b/c the cost of the electric ones is so much cheaper and you can get almost the same benefits by just installing a larger tank for most tasks (almost... but not quite). Not trying to knock what you want to do or anything... I'm sure you get the picture.
For tank mounting locations, some people throw it in the bed, some in a toolbox, but if you want under the truck, look at the space around the framerails under the bed. There's room there and you can fit all sorts of capacities depending on tank shape.
It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.
