There is a bracket made for TJs and pulleys and crap. So that might be a good kit to look at/scavenge parts from or ideas.

My roommate in college had one mounted in his jeep. Always seemed like it never ran or worked. For the amount of money he spent on it, he could've gotten an electric compressor or C02 tank that just worked. Also it was kinda sketchy having the engine running while using the impact to tear apart the front axle.

15 or so years ago I built a a York onboard air system for a Jeep I had at the time. The Jeep had a serpentine belt but I found the easiest way to drive it was to use a second V belt off the alternator. I took the serpentine pulley off the alternator and found a small V belt pulley that fit really good against it at a wrecker. I had a machine shop weld it up dead center and balance it. I built the compressor mount so the compressor and drive pulleys lined up correctly. You'll also need to construct it so the mount has a belt tension adjustment. I made slots for the mounting bolts. This was a bit of work to make it fit real nice and not look like crap. Now I would probably just buy a kit if one was out there.

This company is a great source for parts to make your own setup. Forget that they are made for Jeeps. The Jeeps in the 90's were using Sanden compressors I would almost think one of these kits would be a good starting point. I don't have AC now so I have no idea on the location of the AC compressor in a Defender so I might be wasting your time. Take a look at the mounting instructions.

Gotta get a York so I can get an Amish air-powered blender for the trail.
