CO2 Tank Locations

I plan on getting a CO2 10# Tank and I know we have limited room in our TJs. So if you have them will you post pics on here of your setups with CO2 tanks. Also I have a soft-top so I need to consider this so I can still remove the top without the bars hitting the tank.

Thanks in advance!

Easy access, just pull the air hose out, connect, and fill.

What did you use to mount it there?

Much faster refill times, plus I can use power-tools!

Crazy fast fill speed, portability, simplistic system.

I don't think many people leave them "mounted" in the jeep. Typically, they put them in the jeep when they head out on the trail with intentions of airing down.

It's just some u-bolts and cam straps from Home Depot.

co2 is a form of OBA. For simply airing up tires it's hard to beat. It's not for everyone and in some places co2 can be hard to find or be expensive.

Benefits are it is FAST. Just as fast as a York. It's simple and it's inexpensive for the performance. I have a grand total of $150 into my set up and it only costs 12$ to fill. I can usually go a wheeling season on 1 or 2 fills.

For me when I compared it to the price of a York, I was looking at a minimum of ~$300. For $12 dollars a fill it will probably take about 10 years before my costs are equal to a York, and that's assuming nothing on the York ever breaks and needs replacing.

Yes as would I, but are you saying they remove the whole bracket and mounts that the tank would sit on/in every time? I would think most would just remove their tank, at least that's what I'm going to do.

Yep, to easy to steal. That happened to be a pic I snapped before leaving for a wheeling trip.

Most of the guys I have seen on the trail will just bungee it in or ratchet strap it...so not much for bracketry/mounts. Although there are few people that spring for the more expensive powertank mounts....which I think have a way to lock the tank in.

Summer time, I have mine mounted where it's easier to get to.



Winter time and with a full soft top I run it in this position.
