Viair 2012 JK

Anyone install a Viair compressor under the hood of a 2012 JK. I want to install one but not sure so looking for direction. Thanks.

I have the perfect compressor system for you, that just got released. The kit mounts to a bracket, which then, mounts to your brake booster.

I am actually running a special this month the mentioned kit, offering Free shipping, and including an air relocation kit for free! I will post a link here to the vendor section of the special, once I have it up there.

With the ADA, the first kit, it bolts to your brake booster using the supplied bracket. The second system, with the 2 compressors on the tank, bolts to the front crossmember with the supplied bracket. It fits in between the radiator and the engine.

That bracket won't work on a 2012.

There's an A/C hose and hard-line and an electrical connector where your compressor mount goes.

You can see the obstructions in the image below.

Correct, only Kit 1 VIAIR ADA System, will work on a 2012. It mounts to the brake booster. In the posts above, I was referring to this kit.... O apologize for confusion.

The second kit, 2on2, only work on 07-11 JK's. I have it listed like this in the other thread already.

I'm referring to the brake booster mounted kit. The lines and wiring I mentioned are in the way. You'd have to do some major work to make it fit.

It is a very tight fit, but it does work. VIAIR has done research in making sure everything will fit and work properly. The 2012 bracket is different than what is out there already for the booster bracket.

That is what happens when you work late at night. The compressor for $429 is the 45C model.

Ahh, good to know, thanks.

A picture showing one mounted in a 2012 might be a good idea.
