Onboard air setup help needed.

I need some idea help. I'm installing an arb Onboard air compressor under my passenger seat box. This will be used for airing up tires. I have it all set and working but I want to mount the air hose disconnect under the truck is I don't have to undo my interior to air up tires. I also want it mid truck so I'm not having to stretch to get to the rear tires. Finally I'm worried also about dirt and debris so having some type of cover would be awesome.

Soooo... What have you all done to accomplish similar setups?

You need to get ahold of Josh, Crash303. He has the most awesome on board air setup I have ever seen. ARB compressor under the seat, reserve air tank, and air hookups in each fender well.

A work of art, it is.

I agree. I guess I will have to see if he wants to take pictures...

Well I got it setup, but I really want to keep the head attachment clean. I'm thinking about some type of dry box.

Ok. I came up with a plan. It involves using the existing drain hole in the passenger cubby box, and a bait jar! I will get some pics up on this.

The external hookup is a female quick disconnect, right? So get the male end and thread a cap onto it, keep it connected to the female hookup. Or try Parker for an actual quick disconnect plug. The plugs have a little loop on the end for a tether so it doesn't get lost.

I had a setup like what you are describing in my previous Defender. Pump under the passenger seat, an illuminated switch on the dash to turn it on/off and an air tank stuffed under the hood with a quick disconnect for the air hose. It was cool looking but the ARB compressor was really tasked for anything other than airing up tires. I'm sure a bigger tank would have made it a bit better but then the ARB would be running for 10 minutes just to initially top off the tank.
I eventually purchased a Power Tank so I could continuously run air tools when needed and I still own it.

I am not running a tank, air lockers or tools on it. I have a Detroit setup on lockers, and you really don't want me around air tools. This is purely for my tires and also for our tubeless mtb tire setup when we are mountain biking. Anyway this is what I did.

The bait box/jar is really there to keep the ARB issued female connector dry and clean. It had a really big screw on top, but a really shallow depth so it won't really hang down.
