I have several different chucks all modified with quick disconnects. Switching is a breeze both for the truck or in the shop.

Thanks for the reps! I've always wanted on board air. With the 5er and air bags, it gave me the perfect opportunity to do it. Absolutely my favorite mod. Good luck on your wiring, not really that hard.

That's a great looking install. You will love the convience. I had a similar set up on my 7.3. I also bought a piece of sheet metal and a couple bracketts and fashioned a cover under the tank and pump to keep them relatively dry on rainy days. It protected everything quite well. Would also keep the slush off if you live in that kind of area.

Thank you. With us being here in GA, you well know the type of 'slush' we get. I have been thinking about putting a splash guard of some sort on it to keep the ice and salt from directly hitting it. I really didn't want to do a complete enclosure like some have done due to getting a 100% duty cycle compressor and worrying about the heat build up. So yeah, I'll need something.

Great Idea. I have been looking for rubber covers for mine for months. I have seen them on work trucks, just didnt now where to get them. Thanks golfmedik

It fits REALLY WELL, so don't push it on all the way, or you will be prying to pull it off. No cold weather, so I don't how it will react as far as contracting. It is rubber so who knows.

Hello,

I just bought the Viair 10007 kit and will follow your installation arrangement also. How many holes did you drill on the frame to mount the compressor bracket?

Thanx for any feedback.

I drilled 4 small holes if I recall correctly. Although I think one of them may have already been there. Can't remember, but I did use grade 8 bolts with Loctite and they are still tight.

Thanks Monty, the compressor kit should arrive next week and I'll be collecting parts and pieces for the installation.

Hi Monty,

OK - I've got the Viair tank & 450C compressor mounted under the truck (2013 F250, 6.2L) and am getting ready to hook up the wiring - did you connect the Viair tank pressure gauge light wire to the upfitter switch too?

I never did hook up the gauge lights. However had planned to do it like you said. I have two gauges, one Viair gauge and one Firestone one. Was thinking about hooking the two together like that. To be honest, just hasn't taken the 5 minutes to do it.

How did you mount your compressor to the boxed frame? I can't figure how you'd get nuts on the bolt since the frame is boxed.

Also, how is it holding up?

the kits i have seen have two brackets that are on either side of the frame and have bolts holding them together on the top and bottom of the frame.

Got any pics of that? I get the brackets for the tank, but he's mounted that compressor right on the side of the frame.
