Need some advice on a ARB compressor & mounting

1998 Jeep TJ
Before I pull the trigger on this, I was hoping to get some advice on where to install this under the hood. Pictures would be helpful. I've seen one video on youtube, bullshit corner install. Was thinking maybe under the brake master. Looks like there is a flate plate there I could use

Not planning on purchasing lockers anytime soon, just looking for a system to air back up

Thanks

Probably going to depend on which ARB compressor. I have my CKMA12 mounted on the ABS tray under the master cylinder.

X2. My CKMA12 is mounted under the master cylinder. Its fairly easy to pull out and drill your holes, then remount back in the engine bay. Install the pump and wire. The rubber grommet thru the firewall is also nearby so you can run your wiring thru there.

Before pulling the tray, first position your pump on it in the best spot to optimize access to the hose connection and wiring route. Mark the tray, remove, and drill. It was a tad tight for me, but I was able to shoehorn it into place. I plan to extend the intake up and forward.

The smaller compressor will take a long time to fill up your tires. If you are looking for lockers in the future and air up capabilities, then go with the larger twin compressor.

will the twin compressor still fit in the same spot? The spot in front of the brake MC?

Hosejockey has taught me a TON over the last few years. He's a pretty reliable resource

Just dont play any Rush when he's around.

The ckma12 compressor takes exactly 2.5 minutes to air up a 35" tire from 8psi to 25psi, so it takes me a little over 10 minutes to air up all 4 tires.

I know this because after clipping the air line on the tire, I use the timer on my phone to know when it's done.

Not trying to get off topic but I like my 10lb CO2 system for airing up tires. Compressor for lockers only. Personal preference. I can fill up all four of my tires in under 5 min. My 10lb tank will last most of the season too.

The twin compressor can fit under the hood, but it is a tiiggghhht fit. Many choose to build custom brackets, mount under the seat, or mount in the rear of the jeep. The problem is the ABS takes away the tray most want to mount to.

This is over on JF but it has a few pictures of how people mounted their twin compressors.

Do you research and look it up on ARB's website.

I'm specifically referring to the smaller CKSA12 compressor. It is not designed to fill tires.

The CKMA12 is a medium sized high output compressor that IS designed to fill tires as well as the twin compressor.

If you get that, arb also makes a nice air hose with gauge and clip on tire valve fitting. I added a loose tie wrap to mine to hold the paddle (air valve) down to make it hands free until the time was up.

Morris 4x4 has the CKMA compressor and the inflation kit (coil hose and terminal fittings) for the same price ($310.65 total) but knocks off $30 since it's over $300 when you use FEB30 in the promo code box. So you're essentially getting the inflate kit free vs. other options. FYI.
Also, Joseph at Morris was extremely helpful and prompt in answering email questions.
