ARB CKMA12 compressor mount for 2012

Anytime you google pics of JK ARB mount, even if the advert says for 2012 the pics are always of 2011 or earlier. EVO makes a mount but would also like to see pics of the "standard" side mount that comes off the master brake cylinder since there's a little less room with the hoses and such.

Anyone done or know of pics where someone as mounted an ARB in the 2012 engine bay??

Thanks all

I just installed mine the other day. Contact northridge4by4 and they have the mount for the 2012 model. It mounts just behind the brake fluid reservoir. My hardest decision was where to mount the switch. I have a manual tranny and daystar does not have a panel mount for the manual tranny units. They do have one for the auto trans jeeps (it has to do with the manual shifter getting too close to the switch panel). Sorry I do not have any pictures. They do on their website though. If you get it and have any questions, pm me and I will be glad to help with wiring etc....

2012 ARB mount installed

WOW, I think I am the first one posting a picture of the ARB compressor mount in the engine compartment. I looked for a long time and could not find any pictures in the 2012. Anyways, here it is

That's the mount from ARB? Looks good! On my list of mods.

Haven't seen it recommended yet, but a switch for the ARB you could use an SPOD.....

Didn't imply I was just clarifying. I was looking at the same thing. I couldn't find any pics of a 2012 mount thanks!

The Spod is a great way for you to have multiple accessories. It's a distribution source box that contains all the relays and fuses. That goes to a switch panel mounted in the cabin. All you do it run two wires to the source and you're done. Very clean install.

Mine should be here tomorrow!

Catalina. Thanks. Makes up my mind and it's in an out of the way position. EVO who makes it does say it is for the 2 smaller ARB compressors. I have an sPod so will be wiring to that. Gonna cal NRidge 4x4 tomorrow!

Also, I have the pump but didn't notice any air connections in there. Where did you get it from? Is it from the kit that ARB/Northridge sells?

Thanks again for being the tester

Yes the connections came with the ARB tire inflator kit. I was at sears and theynhad a nice coiled air hose I wish I got. I really like the ARB orange straight hose though. If you would like detailed pictures of how I wired it, just pm me and I will get them to you. I had a hard time figuring out where to connect the last blue wire that dims the switch light. I finally pulled the lower panel where I connected the 12v to the auxiliary cig lighter so it is only hot when the ignition is on. Then I connected the light dimmer wire to the orange wire on the same panel on the far left. I think it was the connector with about 7 wires and it plugs in right behind the traction control button.

Thanks but as mentioned I have an sPOD so just have to figure out what doesn't need to be wired since there's already a switch with this set-up. Just plug in power and ground. I think I may put a splitter on and run another line to the back so I won't have to drag the hose around from the front. I'll let you know if needed.

I was wondering how people run lines. Do you run some sort of hard line or some sort of hose. I ask because I ordered a tank that I am going to mount for the compressor and I don't know what is best as far as air lines go. Hard or soft in all seriousness though would a hose be good or pipe?
Thanks

Can't say for sure but don't think I've ever seen a system with "hard lines" in the system. If anything, heavy duty air lines or stainless steel wrapped maybe. Probably be best to call the tank manufacturer or look around at kit pics.

Wow, that got my thinking...I have a Rapid Air compressed air distribution system I picked up from Princess Auto and used in the garage to route air connections around the workspaces...might be a great way to distribute the air from the engine compartment back to the rear bumper
