air compressor mounting locations

I am going to put on air bags this winter to prepare for next spring's camping season. I am considering also installing the on board compressor kit. Where would be the best place to mount the compressor. Keeping in mind that i have a truck camper that goes in the bed of my truck so it can't be in the box. It has to be under the hood or body somewhere. Unless someone has a different idea. I need some suggestions though. Thanks guys.

You could make a box and mount it under the truck on the frame rail. Or if you want you could mount it in the cab behind the backseat.

I have a buddy he used one of them boat battery boxes to mount his in. His is mounted under the bed of the truck. Along the passenger side frame rail. It stays, dry and warm thanks to the 4 inch exhaust.

He built a metal frame out of 1 angle iron. Put the box in the frame, then he bolted the frame of the box to the frame of the truck. He does some mild off roading and has not had any problems with his compressor getting muddy or wet.

By the way it keeps the road salt off the compressor as well.

Yeah thats my biggest problem is the road salt in MN. I should make up a bracket this winter and have it powder coated and then mount it up.
