Gear Oil Smell?

I bought my 2011 Sahara, a month ago. Just installed ARB air lockers front and rear. I located the air compressor under skid plate next to the gas tank, since there wasn't any room in the engine compartment. I placed the remote filter to the highest point under the hood, and relocated the quick disconnect air line across the frame to the back and custom mount the disconnect behind the plastic portion of the rear license plate. When activating the compressor and both lockers, I get a strong gear oil smell. Is this normal? Help is appreciated thanks.

I'll post a view pics below.
