The short answer is yes...but as Jonesy recommended you should have some in person discussions to get the full details!

As regards to the Powertank option, I have had one for several years and enjoyed the ability to move it between my Disco 1 and D-110, as needed. Here is a picture of the tank in its current location at the back of the 110. From this position, the hose reaches all four tires without removing the tank. I got it from the local Off Road Warehouse. I refill it at an Airgas office near my home.
Have fun with your truck!

I was trying to make the 1.15 session but work gets in the way.

Really appreciate the responses. Will look at a future date for an in person consultation as I work on cleaning up the d110. Thanks.

Since this was brought back from the way back machine - anyone make a bracket to fit a single carb compressor in the engine compartment? - otherwise i'll just figure it out.

What specific compressor are you trying to mount?

Most folks I have seen that put them under the hood ended up making a simple bracket to put the compressor behind the headlight on the LH side. Not a lot of real estate otherwise...I opted for an engine mounted York and then have a Viair unit under the RH seat box as a backup.

Robert, I gave my machinist some plans and he made me one out of stainless.

That being said, Jeff could likely make you something pretty sweet as well.

Mr Payne and i are working on another item at present - i may be able to fab this or failing that Jeff or brewie i'm sure could help.
the left front area on my truck is getting a little crowded with winch solenoid, and some relays - so probably need to redo it anyway and have a bracket that can mount all this stuff.

I felt like sharing this bit from my '95 D90. I was at your point a few years back and made the decision to enlarge the stow box under the passenger seat. I removed the box, extra panel that narrowed the opening, and made a mock-up. My goal was to get as much room as possible and carry a manifold for locker solenoid's, one gallon tank, and the compressor. Extra storage would be good too. Another thought was to keep weight down and also not go below original floor line of OE box. Anyway I managed to pull it off. An airline of 1/2" stainless tubing runs from the tank along top of the frame to the rt. side headlight bezel. The storage allows for hose, gauge, gloves and few other goods. Hope this helps.
