As long as it's vertical, anywhere that is convenient for you. Though I'd personally go up near the rollcage, so that it offers some protection to the valve assembly. No need to hit that thing and crack it very unpleasant results.

That is what I was thinking but wanted to see if someone came up with something different. Not many options back there.
thanks

I've got mine tucked as far back as possible in the corner. It takes very little room back there.

Yep, right up against the rear. I can snap a pic if you want.

You can also mount it horizontaly, just have to stand it up before you use it.

Here is a crappy pic. It is just mounted as far back as possible against the railing with a scuba tank mount.

Edit: I have some extra uv resistant PH 1/4 line if you are getting it to run your airlocker that I can sell you for cheap. I had to buy 100 feet to get it so I have quite a bit left over.
