2. Where did you mount the compressor on your chassis ?
Thanks for any help you can provide. Im so excited to get this installed.
For the ignition source I ran a relay off the TIPM. I built a bracket to mount behind the battery for 2 relays. One for the airlift compressor and one for other miscellaneous items. Then to turn the relays on I just found a keyed source under the dash and tapped into it since it would only be drawing minimal power.
I mounted the compressor on the subframe above the spare tire. I figured it was fairly protected from weather up there and made it very easy to run all the airlines and wiring.
