ARB compressor mounting

I am considering upgrading my ARB compressor that came with my ARB lockers to the CKMTA12 twin onboard compressor. I want to use it to inflate tires and other things. I have my current ARB compressor mounted under the driver's seat along with a dual batter setup. Will the twin compressor fit there as well?

Too big

Have you seen a double compressor in person? I wanted one of these but decided it simply would not fit where I wanted it. Went with the single. Good luck.

I haven't seen it in person, but the ARB website says the twin compressor is 4" H x 7.5" L x 10.8" W. It sounds like it may fit. I may have to get my eyes on one to make sure.

I'd like to see a pic of your dual battery setup with the ARB compressor if you get a minute. I've got my ARB in the same spot but only single battery and was thinking about how to fit moving to dual.

Jason, I haven't installed the dual battery setup yet, but I can post pics once the install is done.

Mine is mounted under the passenger seat. Seems to work well there.

You would have to be a ninja to fit dual batteries and an ARB compressor - with the solenoids - in one compartment. I need to see some pics.

Loads of room on the Pass side. Even on a 97 with the stupid ABS ECU stuffed in there as well. Plenty of room for some nice coils of hose as built in 'spares' as well. Plus it's a shorter and more direct run to the front locker so there is less hose in the system to fail. It's only a bit but it helps. If I took the coil out I only need about 18" of the weak blue hose in mine. I have enough coiled to completely replace that section if I need to.
