I'm really having a difficult time finding a mounting solution for my dual ARB, that doesn't involve installing under the front seat. I took it out of my JKU, where it was under the hood. Considering doing Co2 now. Thoughts?
 
Is there a reason why you don't want it under the seat? A CO2 tank has its own pros and cons. It gives you enough for about 20 to 25 tires depending on its capacity. You have to worry about a mounting bracket and space. Finding places to refill it can be challenging depending on where you live. Etc.

I wish we had space in the engine bay for a York system. It's what I have in my 2003 TJ and probably my best upgrade.
 
I have not done a lot of research but under the seat seems perfect to me. I'm assuming no one is sitting in the seat while the jeep is stationary and airing up. The internal leads and aux switches will be a very convenient way to power it. Perhaps only the ARB single fits under the seat though.....
 
I have the twin ARB showing up today and no idea where to install it. I have been thinking I would have been better off with the portable version. If portable I could also use it for our boat at the harbor. Maybe it's possible I can make this one portable, buy the tank and a case.

You certainly can make it portable but depending on what you would use it for you may not need the tank.

The only thing I would use it for is to run a air tool to polish the stainless and possibly fill up the dinghy. Would the tank help with tire inflation?
 
they make a nice kit for installing in the rear cargo area below the cargo. Check out American Adventure Labs they have a couple very Nice options for the rear cargo area and the wire to run it back there.


I believe thats for a Jl but I have seen 392 stuff also on there

I saw that and that's what I'm interested in, but it doesn't say if it'll work in the 392. I called them and they never called me back.

I dont have a 392 yet but from the pictures and video I have seen I will say it will not fit a 392.
