Anyone running an on board air setup? Got mine all ordered for this truck and doing it different than last setup. Curious where people are putting their tank(s). I got two 5 gal tanks I will be running with an Air Zenith OB2 compressor and smc valves. Air psi comes from 2 pressure transducers all wired to my CTS2 monitor (well at least Edge says I can format them to work in My Style software). No air lines in the cab this go around.

Hoping to put tanks where spare tire was but this truck has more heat shields than last one.

I use a York 210 A/C compressor as an air pump. It is a kit I bought from Little Shop Mfg. It loses a lot of oil (because A/C compressor), so I run it through a moisture trap after the check valve and pressure switch.

Every 30 minutes of runtime or so I dump the oil out of the trap and top off the compressor. Because this thing moves so much air, it is not a big deal, as 30 minutes of runtime is enough to adjust my airbags for years, or to fill all my tires multiple times. Really it is only annoying if I'm running air tools off it.

And again because it moves so much air, I can run a small tank and not eat up too much space in the truck. It is mounted outboard of the frame rail near the middle cab mount, and my AirDog is mounted inside the frame next to it (you can see the bracket in the photo of the tank).

Nothing to crazy. Viair 450c , 7 gallon tank ,k3la and i have bags on it now also . Controlled with the cts2 but it was very laggy controlling any switches so i changed to toggle.

I’ve got a vaiair 450c and 3 gal tank in my tool box. Ran air chucks to the middle of the middle body mounts on the frame. Thing SUCKs to fill up anything other than quad tires. Really just used it for my train horns. The motor or piston is finally dieing though because it takes a lot of amperage to get it going now.

Anymore I just use the air compressor in my trailer or bring the 20lbs co2 tank I keep in the tracker for wheeling.

Air connection in the bed next to my other connections. I had one on the frame rail but that one broke off so I one left it in the bed for protection


The buttons to my air lockers is what turns on the pump for now. eventually i'll wire it up on its own button to the far right

I know the top 2 are used for welding lead, but are you using those for trailer power? That would work out better for me than Anderson connectors for trailer winch power. Sorry OT.

I have a set of jumper cables just over 20' that I made. I cut them in half and joined them back together with welding connectors. The welding connectors in the bed are for my jumper cables. I don't use them on any trailers as of yet

The bottom connection is for my gooseneck
