Frame mounted On-Board air with power steps

Anyone with Power Steps have a frame rail mounted on-board air system? Trying to see if I can mount the 2.5 gal tank and compressor to the rail under the passenger side and not interfere with the power step actuators.

I have an extended cab so the actuators may be a little closer together than most. Anyone see any issues with mounting the tank on one side and the compressor on the other? Plumbing and electrical would be tougher, but not that much. Anyone find another good under bed mounting location for the tank?

thanks

Frame mounted On-Board air with power steps

I have a crew cab long bed so I have more room, but I mounted my Nathan train horns to the driveshaft crossmember, they're about 22" long X 14" wide X 12" tall. All you need to do is make an adapter plate to mount to the underside of the truck at your desired location and bolt the tank to that. Viair makes a nice little box that mounts to the frame so you your compressor is not mounted sideways or upside down

I used a 3/8 flat plate and mounted the compressor on the inside of the frame rail on left side. (between separator and tank) The Northern Pacific 3 trumpet Horns under bed in the right front corner bed space (between rear tire and cab) and the 4 gal tank under bed in the Left front corner bed space. Nice clean look and cant see any of it.

I hadn't looked too closely at mounting inside the rails, that may be the ticket. Once it dries out here enough to roll around on the driveway I'll take a better look .
