On board Air Question

I am usually on the short wheel base board, but I thought you all might be the experts here. I am putting the 360 from a 83 grand wagoneer in my CJ. It has PS, AC and a smog pump. I am wondering if there is anyway to add a second air compressor to have on board air. Any ideas?

Thanks

Re: On board Air Question

Most of the guys replace the AC with their on-board air. I did see a guy that had replaced his smog pump with the compressor. I have also seen one where a guy had swapped the Altenator and the AC Comp, so that the Alt wasn't so hard to get to. Maybe that will give you some ideas.

Re: On board Air Question

I'm working on an 86 Wag that's more for daily driving. I plan to add a small elec. compressor and tank for air as needed and it's one lees thing drawing on the engine. This way I turn on the compressor only when needed. It's also cowded under the hood because I'm keeping the AC. I've added a aux battery & 8ga. cable to the back for power inverter & amp also. I've got a small cylinder tank but I'm looking for a flat, round 'pan shaped' tank might fit in the spare. I've got light recoiling hose that stashes in a panel in the rear. I'm doing this on an FSJ and I'm not familiar with the room you have to work with on a CJ but this just seems to work on my truck.

Re: On board Air Question

I have on-board air on both my CJ and on my Cherokee Chief. On the Chief I retained the original A/C compressor by building so simple brackets. You can do the same thing in your CJ but I did mine in the CJ without A/C to worry about. If you want to see some pictures of the brackets I built and how they went in goto www.photopoint.com and but in my e-mail address ( [email protected] ) then goto projects. Let me know if you need something else. Hope that helps

sirjeepalot: That is an awesome setup! I would love to buy the plans/brackets . . . whatever you have to duplicate that setup in my G-wag. I sent you an email.
