    Thered a few things now leading me to install underhood:

    my 2 door has tumble seats. Looking at the CMM mount it specifically says it doesn't work with tumble seats. I'm not sure if other mounts have the same restriction.

    I do have a dog (and a wife) I doubt either would be happy with the compressor running on the interior.

    I appreciate all the feedback / guidance!

    After looking at a few of these bracket I think a DIY with L brackets would work the same under the seat. Hmmmmmm

    Originally had my Twin ARB compressor mounted under the hood with a MORE bracket. Really liked this setup as I use for air up of tires and lockers. However, I burned up both compressors which were warrantied by ARB. Have since relocated to rear fender well using MORE bracket that fits between the hard top and rail using existing top mounting holes. No more overheating but as said in previous posts it is pretty loud.

    I think I made a terrible mistake.
    This is a 24v Compressor! I didn't even know / think this was a thing until I went looking at ARB's site for more information on what's in the kit.

    The price was too good to be true when I saw your first post even for Black Friday. Good luck with figuring it out.

    Ugh. I know, right! "if it's too good to be true, it probably is."

    A seller on ebay. It hasn't shipped yet, and he's been responsive via ebay messages. He runs a store and is checking if they can get a 12v to ship me. Otherwise, we'll cancel the order before he ships.

    Most under the seat mounts don’t work on a 2 door because of the tumble seat. Hinrich has some super off brand one that worked in his old 2 door. I would check out his old build thread to see if it’s in there.

    I personally have had my twin under my hood of my 2011 for the past 5 years with no issues. I am using the M.O.R.E mount which locates it next to the brake booster.

About us
“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.
