    Wiring

    IF I am only using the ARB as a compressor, what does the wiring hookup look like? I take it I don't need to hook to two AUX switches? You never explained the AUX 2 connection usage.

    Thanks

    3) Also if you are relatively slender or have long arms you can leave the fender and wheel on which I did. You just need to remove the inner fender liner.

    All in all if I didn’t have my kids interrupting me during the wiring portion it takes a total of 1.5 hrs for an amateur to install, if you have all tools parts needed. You will need a crimper or vise grips (to crimp the electrical connectors) at least and electrical tape and Teflon tape. The crimper I bought was garbage and mangled a few connectors which made me to go Home Depot to get more and I just used vise grips to crimp.
    Can you show a diagram on how you wired please?

    Relay and wiring

    Since I am only using this as a compressor, where does the relay mount and what wires are used to connect to the AUX?

    Thanks

    Could you elaborate on single vs twin in this space? Did you take measurements or what stood out as likely deal breakers? Maybe the twin is just that much larger or maybe it wouldn't leave any room to fasten the mount?

    Umm, the twin is a much bigger compressor and there's no way you could mount it up the way I have the single mounted to the firewall. Not say there isn't a way to make it work in this space but it would require a different mounting system.

    I have seen the twin mounted in a similar fashion with a custom bracket but I’d be cautious of how close the twin gets to the CAT on that side. The single likely stays far enough away from it that it isn’t an issue but the twin has a much larger footprint.

    Well I finally installed my ACM mount and compressor! It works great! Thanks for this mount I really didn’t want it inside the Jeep. I guess I was also too excited to take a picture of it wired.

    Looks good. I think this is my next mod. Did you wire it to the ARB switch or did you use the OEM Aux switches?

    I wired it to the OEM Aux switches. It was very easy once I figured out what each wire was for.

    Will it work with inner liners?

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
