Air Tanks and train horns???

Just ordered my kit today. I have a 5 gallon tank coming with the kit, and will be adding two more 3 gallon tanks from a mixer. My plan is to mount all three tanks where the spare used to rest, then the pump in the tool box next to the water tank. Anyone have any feed back? Thinking I will add two air QC at each side of the tool box, drivers and passangers...

I would do something to protect the tanks from Off-Roading / Snow / Mud damage. Otherwise sounds pimp.

Get us pics, and sound clips

Re: Air Tanks and train horns???

I am thinking some 1/8" sheet to line the bottom, then the drain valves will be the only thing hanging, but there WAY up there!!!

Cool. How are you going to attach it to the truck? Span the frame rails, or drill holes in the spare tire bracket, or?

Yeah I plan to put my pump and 5 gallon tank in the bed, next to my tool box, so I can run a nail gun etc. if I need to. The horns.... well there only one place they could go..... and thats where the T-case "should" be.

Re: Air Tanks and train horns???

I have no idea how to find it but there was a post over on TDS where someone mounted his tanks in the exact same spot. He also had a somewhat hidden quick connect in or under the back bumper. He had a custom bracket and I believe skid type plate made up. It was a nice install.

Re: Air Tanks and train horns???

I was thinking about modding the spare jack and making it lowerable... but those things are prone to breaking anyway so I most likey will build a frame that spans the rails...

Re: Air Tanks and train horns???

with that many tanks you might want to upgrade your pump to a 100&#37; duty cycle or run an extra pump.

What size compressor are you using because I have 2 viair 480C's for 1 8 gallon tank and you are going to use 1 comp for 11 gallons it is going to take forever to fill up and recover and what psi do you plan on running.
